Today WUSA9 made the decision to leave our broadcast of MASN/Nationals baseball in order to join CBS coverage of the NCAA Final Four Men's Basketball Tournament at 4 p.m. Regretfully, this decision upset a great many viewers who wanted to see the extra-inning finish to the Nationals/Reds game.

WUSA9 ran crawls at the bottom of the screen during the game telling viewers game coverage would continue on our digital 9.2 channel, and directing them to a channel guide on our web site so they could find the game on their cable or satellite provider. However, WUSA9 did not communicate that decision to MASN prior to the on-air announcements.

We apologize to those viewers who were upset by the transition, and we will work hard in the future to better communicate to our viewers and our programming partners.
