Station Group CEO

Station Group CEO (8/8)



  1. I take it TEGNA wasn't in any mood to add this jewel to KING's crown?
  2. They own a bunch of non-commercial licenses that I can't imagine it would be easy to strip of the non-com designation to widen the pool of potential buyers...unless it's more advantageous to donate them instead of selling them as prime real estate.
  3. Is Twitter so indispensable that businesses won't just go elsewhere? You'd think Elon would have learned from the boom-and-bust cycles of dot-com businesses...
  4. Telemundo must be big business for them - or, at least, it has a ton of upside!
  5. You have to wonder if this is what Scripps owns stations like WPXN for...at least in part... Hell, even stations like WMBC.
  6. Gilmer is originally from California anyway, isn't he?
  7. Don't they make too much money for that?
  8. The impetus for this deal is that Zaz wants to be in the top echelon of moguls, opportunities to buy media monoliths like WarnerMedia are rare, and AT&T was willing to dump WarnerMedia for a relative bargain.
  9. Why would they do that? ION is the straw that stirs the drink at Scripps, not traditional network affiliates.
  10. Do they not know their own history? Have they forgotten that this is how they killed UPN? (And arguably got the CW created in the first place?)
  11. I get the impression that NewsNation isn't thought of too highly at Nexstar stations...
  12. It also comes off like an indictment of Nexstar's whole approach... Also is WBTS actually a factor?
  13. When Viacom originally struck the deal to buy Paramount Communications, the planned name was "Paramount Viacom International." Then the bidding war with Barry Diller ensued and somehow the rebrand ended up being scuttled. Sumner was very attached to the name "Viacom." I have to wonder if dropping the name is intended to communicate a clean break from him.
