    I really don't see most of the stations changing their url, especially the ones with 2 news operations like WBRE/WYOU, WTWO/WAWV, and WTVW/WEHT

    Update on the abc27/Flora situation.

    Looks like Nexstar is going all in for defending the way they do things. A few takeaways ... they say that they are looking at all aspects of the station ... anchor desk changes are coming ... and they are shelling in $3 million in improvements to the station.

    You can do a lot with $3 million dollars. Stay tuned. Things are heating up at abc27.

    Reuters reports that Apollo Global Management has approached Nexstar about possibly acquiring the company, in conjunction with existing Nexstar stakeholder P2 Capital Partners. They note, though, that the confidential sources who informed them of the offer contend that "Nexstar has not yet engaged in sale talks and there is no certainty it will entertain an offer."

    They need to clean house at management more than anything - need to fire their GM, their VP, their ND, etc.. Is it hurting them in ratings (has WHP or WPMT caught them)? I know WGAL dominates the market.

    It will be interesting to see if Nexstar is hostily acquired much like Media General was hostily acquired by Nexstar....

    Given Nexstar's debt load, this could be a bigger disaster in the making....

    I mentioned this in the other thread but, I say Nexstar gets broken up simply because Nexstar is WAY too big for one company to fully acquire it

    I say Nexstar(or Sinclair) falls apart simply because it got so big that nobody could buy it...and I hope the goverment allows it to fail.

    No bail outs.
    Let it crash and burn so real entrepreneurs can try something new that can serve local markets better.

    The sooner it happens the better.

    Speculation can be very costly as Sinclair my soon attest to, TV stations groups should never be considered too big to fail.

    I see this whole Sinclair mess as being the "warning shot" that the FCC has fired across the bow of all the large station groups.

    I support comprehensive television reform.

    New M&A from Nexstar tonight.

    They're buying Lockwood's CW station WHDF in Huntsville for $2.25M.

    Nexstar already owns the Fox station, WZDX.

    And as of 7/15, they're operating WHDF under a TBA.
