Indians sell SportsTime Ohio to Fox Sports
The broadcast network carrying Cleveland Indians games has been sold. Indians CEO Paul Dolan announced this morning that Fox Sports Media has purchased SportsTime Ohio for an undisclosed amount. The deal includes exclusive long-term local telecast rights for Indians baseball. The FOX Sports network in Ohio already airs Cavaliers, Cincinnati Reds, Columbus Blue Jackets, and other Ohio franchise games.


Film provides forum for anti-fracking rally
Anti-drilling demonstrators say a new movie is inspiring a protest in Youngstown, where deep injection of wastewater from hydraulic fracturing was linked to a series of earthquakes. The group Frackfree America National Coalition is rallying this afternoon. It's drawing attention to an initiative that would prohibit drilling rigs, wastewater deep-injection wells and other oil and gas infrastructure around homes, schools, cemeteries, parks and national forests.  The movie "Promised Land"  looks at a community struggling with oil and gas leases.  The Youngtown-based group says it hopes its efforts will raise awareness in northeast Ohio.

 
Snow parking bans lifted 
Snow Emergency Parking Bans have been lifted across the region.  The Akron ban was initially slated to extend through Saturday morning.
