If they are taking over early, what happens to stations that MG is divesting?
Are we playing the 20 questions game? If so, then he needs to ask 17 more questions.
Well I have praised him (like how he actually does stuff to change the tv industry for better or worse unlike most of us, and that he establishes himself early on like he did with KLAS), but like with time magazine's person of the year award, that doesnt mean I like him. That's like someone saying that I'm a trump supporter because I like how charismatic he is. I dont like nexstar more than any of you, nor do I support trump. If anything, I actually HATE nexstar and sinclair. And sook may have taken too many influences from julian sinclair smith (sinclair isnt even his middle name) and david smith, including some of the worst aspects of them, like exploiting loopholes. It may not be a major issue in itself, but considering how often nextar and sinclair have done it, how their biggest acquisitions (first albritton, now media general) were out of excess abuse of loopholes, and how both companies ceos have suspiciously high net worths (which makes me wonder if they funded criminal empires with their money), they both crossed the line (in nexstar's, or should I say, nexstar media's case, the merger with media general) and I will never forgive nor trust the companies' CEOs again after that! And I've had a bit of grudging respect for them that was dwindling recently, but now, it's all gone and sook has changed for the worse.
Can't wait to see what WCMH's new URL will be.
WeAreBrutusStrong DOT com?
ScarletAndGrayMatters DOT com?
CaringAboutThe614 DOT com?
You're watching Local 4, home of ClickOnDetroit.com...
....oops, wrong station.
Have any of those divestments been cleared yet?
Why not say Local NBC 4?
NBC Local 4 seems more likely. I'm not even gonna speculate on what nbc4i.com will become.
The sad thing is that they're only slightly less stupid than WSYX's actual website address:
I could see their website becoming ClickOnColumbus DOT com.
Because it's Nexstar, I wouldn't be surprised if they invoke the Olentangy River in some way.
I don't think so.
And Nexstar & MG are still waiting for the FCC greenlight. Here's a write-up from the B&C yesterday (12/20).
At this rate, they might as well wait until after the auction is over. Nexstar had deals that lasted longer than this. The ComCorp deal lasted 20 months. So they can wait.
At this point, the delay could be because of the transition the government's in right now.
Watch them shimmy around and make a way to "lease" or otherwise run these stations without "technically" holding the licenses, until the deal gets settled one way or the other. That will happen before January 20th, my prediction.
Contrary to what a lot of the media keeps repeating in their echo chamber, the incoming administration isn't the biggest fan of concentrated media and the taking away of market voices/perspective. Could be a very rough time for SOME of the media companies, over the coming months, than is being let on.
Well heck yes...
The incoming prez has shown that he really doesn't need the media to get his message out to the public.
Trump payed the media like a fiddle...and thus the cash poor media has become irreverent in the eyes of many.
Are the TV ownership rules really a giant priority for the incoming admin in say the first 200 days?
