Many Chiefs fans in Kansas City had some anxious moments in the third quarter that had nothing to do with the actual game.
Around 4:47 p.m., KCTV-5’s feed of the broadcast went blank for some subscribers. The outage, which lasted about 13 minutes, was because of transmitter issues, according to the KCTV-5 Twitter account.
The Star contacted KCTV-5, with a spokesperson deferring all comment to general manager Mike Cukyne.
As of early Sunday evening, attempts to reach Cukyne via phone and email were unsuccessful.
