  7. It's going to be a long wait before we see those Katz Nets to the Ion spectrum. The Univision carriage deal of the nets doesn't end until 2024.
  8. Sinclair renews an agreement for 13 CBS affiliates.
  9. Just a couple months after the sale closed, KMGH has relaunched KCDO as "Local 3". Syndie shows include Right This Minute, The List, Family Feud and secondary airings of Tamron Hall & Kelly Clarkson during the evening hours. It will have an extended morning news from 7-9am and a "special" 1pm broadcasts.
  10. Seems that over 2 million people watched the Bears-Saints Wild Card matchup on Nickelodeon.

  17. Lake Charles was not a part of this deal. Waypoint sold the Lake Charles LPs to SagamoreHill. SagamoreHill did have that Jackson, TN LPs that was in part of this deal, however. Anyway, once that Transfer of Control gets finalized, it will be Kim that will be running the show and not McDermott.
  18. The deal appears to be closed. Gray completed their KLCW (& the LPs) deal on New Year's Eve (12/31). Although, I don't see the closing paper of KJTV to SagamoreHill. But that might come out soon..... EDIT 1/5: Here's KJTV's closing paper. Both closed on 12/31.
  19. Well, so much for hope to complete the deal....... And after almost eleven months after the FCC approved the deal, the Waypoint/Vision transaction to Standard Media is now officially dead. Non-consummation notices posted Monday (1/4).
  20. Maybe Soohyung Kim can close this deal?..... Big update regarding Standard Media. Filed on New Year's Eve (12/31/20) is a Transfer of Control application of Standard Media from McDermott Communications to Community News Media, LLC (through a subsidiary Paducah Television Operations). Community News Media is the same firm that's filing to acquire the two Sinclair stations in Paducah, KY (KBSI/WDKA). Here's the organizational chart of the proposed change of guard of Standard Media.
  21. Not sure when that contract expires. But as of now, WSYM is still the MeTV affiliate in Lansing.
