    Gray/Raycom Merger Thread

    This is why Gray bought an LP in Albany, concurrent to this deal. CBS is staying put on WSWG. Wouldn't be surprised if WSWG's signal would be repeated on WSST's subchannel so it can serve the northern sections of the Albany market.

    Gray/Raycom Merger Thread

    That is speculation. What will Lockwood do after a year passes, who knows? But the DOJ hopes that keeping it a status quo for a year would be enough for Lockwood to come up with some sort of plan.

    Gray/Raycom Merger Thread

    What's also posted on the order, WDFX & WFXG will keep their current news share agreements for one year after the deal is complete. WDFX airs a 9pm show produced out of WSFA, while WFXG airs a 10pm show produced out of WTOC.

    Gray/Raycom Merger Thread

    From Delrahim: See what happens when you get along & being upfront with the regulators, and not act like bullies and stepping on their toes, telling them to "Sue Me". Gray didn't have to stall for nine months to post their divestiture plan and get the third parties lined up (it only took TWO months). This is what happens when you play by the rules. Although I thought this deal would've been completed by Thanksgiving, the length of this deal would be damn near on-par with the length of Gannett/Belo five years ago, should this deal be completed by Christmas. They still have to get the greenlight from Pai.

    WCBS - CBS2 News

    Okay,. when you go to cbsnews.com/live, there's some square icons on top of the page. "CBSN", "CBSN New York", "CBS Spors HQ", "ET Live". Click the one that says "CBSN New York". That first link I posted earlier "newyork.cbslocal.com/live" should've been streaming the local CBSN and not the national one.

    WCBS - CBS2 News

    I checked out this link. On the header its says CBSN New York. But they're streaming the main CBSN Network.

    No I was taking about the three stacking monitors to the right.

    The verticle monitors are not missing. The monitors feature the GG images on a black blackground.

    Out and About

    I forgot to mention. Serestar also operates the NBC-owned Telemundo outlet KNSO. That LMA will be terminated in the early part of the new year, so NBC will gain full control for that outlet.

    Out and About

    Some New M&As. NBC is acquiring Telemundo affiliates in Sacramento & Salt Lake City, owned by Serestar Communications for $21M. Also, Scripps is buying independent station WHDT in Stuart, FL, from Gunter Marksteiner, for $25M. It already owns the NBC station WPTV and operates the Raycom-owned Fox outlet WFLX. No telling what they'll be using the new channel for, once the deal is done.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Nexstar stated in a conference call this AM, that it could fetch up to $75M in extra retrans fees, plus proceeds from spin-off properties could be worth as much as $1B. Sook also stated about the two-decade track record of getting deals done. From B&C: Analysts also asked abou what Nexstar will do with cable outlet WGN America. Even though Sook said he didn't have immediate plans on selling the network, he also said that some outside entities have expressed interest in the channel. And if a right deal came about, he wouldn''t mind selling it. From Multichannel News:
