UK Gets Dose of K-Town
June 11, 2008 - Sitting in his cabin on the cruise ship “Freedom” on the Straight of Gibraltar, Knightstown resident Steve Wright and his wife were preparing for dinner and watching the news when they saw something they couldn’t believe.
Sky News, a network based in London, was broadcasting election coverage about Sen. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton from Knightstown. In fact, the network was interviewing Banner Publisher Eric Cox. Local author Mark Tabb was also interviewed.
Caught up in the excitement of seeing his hometown on international news, Smith began taking pictures of the television screen.
“I was so excited about Knightstown being on television halfway across the world that I didn’t even know what Mr. Cox was saying,” Smith said.
After the initial excitement wore off, Smith decided to call home and check in. After speaking to the ship purser, he found out ship to shore phone calls cost $6.99 a minute. $53 later, Smith hung up.
