  1. I've said it before and I'll say it again: Disney should've found a broadcaster (or even a private equity firm) to team up with to buy Allbritton's stations. Then they could've had WJLA while the other company gets the other six stations.
  2. I've never heard of this, but I bet Disney/ABC wishes their contract with Albritton had it.
  3. It would be a great way to troll Tribune and Overboard Value.
  4. Yeah, especially considering the number of stations (14) and the number of affiliation swaps that would be needed (in Jacksonville, Boston, Dayton, Tulsa, Pittsburgh, Memphis, and Seattle).
  5. Something disappeared from the Breakroom group, but I don't know what it was. Go figure.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Which brings up a good question: Aren't the Tribune stations still tied up in that case? I imagine Nexstar's purchase won't be able to go through the ALJ deals with the case.

    What, they don't have an underground tunnel connecting the buildings?

    George HW Bush dies at 94

    Since I'm at work, I have no idea what's actually on TV, but I've had KPRC's live stream open in a tab for over an hour now. Not listening to the audio, though, as my headphones aren't long enough to reach the headphone jack on my computer.

    George HW Bush dies at 94

    I did a little checking. It's the burial service that's going to be private. So, I'm curious: Are the Houston stations doing their own coverage today or just going with their respective networks? And what are the Bryan/College Station stations doing?

    George HW Bush dies at 94

    I thought the Houston funeral was going to be private and invite-only.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    I'm a front-end developer, so I probably pay more attention to that stuff than other people here do.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Nexstar also has Lakana to provide digital solutions, including station websites that are surprisingly good compared to Nexstar's pre-MG sites.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    I'd give significant credit to the MG-LIN deal, too. Isn't some of LIN's management still at Nexstar? Also, it's pretty clear that Perry Sook trusts his management team and is open to their input. That's a good thing.
