On Friday, July 23, 2010, a technical problem was detected with the national internet service this station contracted with to accept entries and determine winners for the 2 THE PUMP contest. The problem affected the ability of viewers to submit entries, beginning with the noon newscast and continuing with the 5:00PM newscast and 6:00PM newscast. As a result, the contest coordinator had decided to void all entries submitted for Friday, July 23, 2010. No codeword was presented in the 11:00PM newscast. With the cancellation of the contest for Friday, July 23, 2010, only, the last day of the contest has been rescheduled for Monday, August 2, 2010.
