Call DISH Network and demand they bring back WISH-TV and MyINDY-TV 23


On Oct. 4, 2019, at 6:59 p.m. EDT, DISH removed WISH-TV and MyINDY-TV 23 from its lineup.

We worked hard to reach a new agreement but were unsuccessful. Call DISH at 800-333-3474 and demand they bring back your locally owned and locally operated WISH-TV and MyINDY-TV 23. Last month, we announced that our stations are now locally owned and operated by Circle City Broadcasting. WISH-TV and MyINDY-TV 23 are the only two Central Indiana television stations not owned by a big corporation. DISH Network has made this change as a result of our new local ownership.

Our locally owned stations are an important asset to the Central Indiana community. WISH-TV provides 75 hours per week of local news and local programming, more than any other television station in Indiana. Without an agreement with DISH, we are unable to provide our premiere news, weather, traffic, sports, political coverage and other national programming that is most important to you.

Please call DISH now at 800-333-3474 and demand they bring back your WISH-TV, MyINDY-TV 23 and all your favorite programming. Let DISH know that you do not want to be charged for programming that you’re not receiving.

DISH’s phone number is 800-333-3474.

You may continue to watch WISH-TV, MyINDY-TV 23 and all of your favorite local programming over-the-air via antenna or by switching to an alternative pay-TV provider.

Thank you for supporting WISH-TV, MyINDY-TV 23 and local television.


2 Columbus police officers arrested, facing charges of misconduct, ghost employment

COLUMBUS, Ind. (WISH) — Two Columbus police officers have been arrested on multiple charges including official misconduct and ghost employment.

According to Indiana State Police, Dan Meister and Ron May were arrested for allegedly working off-duty security jobs while also working on duty with the Columbus Police Department. An investigation into the officers began in November 2018 after a request was made by the Columbus Police Department.

Lt. Dan Meister and Sgt. Ron May allegedly worked overlapping shifts for both the police department and Columbus Regional Hospital between February 2015 and August 2018. The officers were paid by CPD and the hospital for the same hours worked on multiple occasions.

Meister had overlapped hours on 52 different occasions and May overlapped on 62 occasions, investigators say.

The investigation was turned over to a special prosecutor and arrest warrants were issued for the men on Friday. They were arrested Friday afternoon without incident and taken to the Bartholomew County Jail, police say.

Both officers are facing charges of official misconduct, ghost employment and theft.

May and Meister are expected to face initial hearings soon.

Information about how long they have worked with CPD was not immediately available.
