    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    I'm talking about proof from credible and verifiiable sources. Not from Wiki. You can't always believe what's posted on that site and take it as gospel. But again, we'll wait until Nexstar post the amended paperwork.

    Wikipedia is NOT a reliable source.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Where's the proof that Nexstar is keeping KXNW and going to use it as a semi-satellite station? I read many of the press releases from the publications this week, and not one mentioned anything about what they'll do with KXNW. Going back to the original comprehensive exhibit (p.29 (30 on the PDF)) however: Interesting that the FCC is still classifying KNWA as a satellite of KFTA. But I'm going to wait until the amended paperwork gets posted, to see whether Nexstar is keeping KXNW or not. That'll probably won't happen until they finalize the deal of which Indy property they'll sell off.

    Voice Actor Chris Corley Dead

    Weigel posted this small tribute, as he was also one of the VOs of Movies!. I'll always remember him as the VO of WPWR after Fox took over in the early 2000s. May he & his wife rest in peace.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    WNEP going to the Deathstar? That's one real headscratcher there. The only conflict in-market that hasn't been mentioned is Indianapolis. It'll be interesting who will acquire the spun-off property there. There were reports that Nexstar wants to keep WXIN/WTTV if they're allowed to by the new top-4 rule. You better hope they don't play the shell card there.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    And here come the advocacy groups....... ATVA, NCTA, DISH, Frontier, & Common Cause have wrote objections to the deal. The latter three are Petitions of Deny. Free Press should be forthcoming........

    Out & About

    WTTG is adding a new 4pm hour in the spring, competing against WRC & WJLA. They didn't announce an exact date. But could they be launcing before the May books?

    AT&T buying Time Warner?

    Oh Boy. Plepler gone. Levy gone. And now Tsujihara is gone because of a sex scandal. Tsujihara, one of the last executives of the old Time Warner gaurd, was going to keep his post as CEO of Warner Bros, after parent WarnerMedia announced its restructing for the media conglomerate.

    2019-20 Syndication News

    Looks like the Lighthouse is going to pull the plug on Pickler & Ben. They stated that a lack of clearance in the top markets (in O&O territory) for their decision, despite growing in over two-thirds of the TV households. From this article during its Q4 earnings call a couple of weeks ago:
