Louisville Fox-affiliate WDRB, along with its MyNetworkTV sister station, WMYO, is back on Insight Cable, which is owned by Time Warner Cable.

WDRB’s owner, Block Communications, reached a new carriage agreement with Time Warner this week, ending a blackout that began last Friday.

“I couldn’t be happier to have this process completed,” WDRB president and general manager Bill Lamb said in a statement.  “I know the last several days have been trying for our viewers who are Insight subscribers, and we’ve shared their pain. It’s good to know that–despite our differences– both sides were ultimately able to finally reach a fair resolution.”

In announcing the new retrans agreement, Lamb thanked local politicians, including Louisville mayor Greg Fischer, for “their behind-the-scenes efforts to keep the lines of communication open.”
