Red Sox or Rainbows a radio dilemma
For World Series fans in Hawai'i whose only option was listening to Game 4 on the radio, the switch might have come as a surprise.
During the bottom of the sixth inning yesterday, with Boston already leading 3-0, KKEA began broadcasting the University of Hawai'i women's volleyball game against San Jose State.
Chris Hart, KKEA programming director, said the station didn't have a choice. He said the radio station is contractually bound to broadcast UH events.
He said the station made announcements during the week that it would switch from the World Series to the volleyball match, but would return to the baseball game during the ninth inning for the big moment.
"Hopefully, we didn't surprise anybody," he said.
