    Disney Execs reported to be visiting Cox stations

    It sounds simple on paper, but something like that is no sure thing. Remember that Fox tried to pull together a bid with Blackstone for Tribune last year and it wasn't enough.

    Did Allbritton even have the intentions to sell WJLA separately? If not, then it wouldn't have mattered, as there was no way Disney was going to buy ABC 33/40, KATV, KTUL, WSET, WCIV and WHTM in addition to WJLA.

    Gray/Raycom Merger Thread

    MyTV is a two-hour weeknight block of filler programming. That's all there is to it. You could throw it on in prime-time or late-night/overnights and no one would tell the difference... especially when said two-hour block is "white-label" with no branding whatsoever. Unless the CW Plus feed has no room for "opt-outs" of any sort, which I can't imagine them being that rigid...

    Disney Execs reported to be visiting Cox stations

    If Cox is selling their stations to different buyers, then why not? I remember hearing over the years that Disney really wanted WJLA, but Allbritton wanted a single buyer. And like hell Disney would have bought the group just for one station. One thing is for sure, Sinclair is taking themselves out of consideration due to their unbelievable tone-deaf attitude after killing their own bid for Tribune. As it is, I’ll believe this when I see it, but who knows?

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Nexstar could have easily undid the semi autonomous news department for WYTV and imposed the generic EWN brand on both 33 and 27. They haven’t which, for a struggling market like Youngstown, is a good thing. For all the (well deserved!) heat that Sinclair gets for finagling duops in markets that shouldn’t have duops, it was 27/33’s preceding owner New Vision (which LIN bought) that did most of the consolidation and downsizing in 2007 after buying WKBN from Bain and taking over WYTV through a JSA.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    If they are, Tribune needs a new lawyer. Armstrong is merely a puppet for David Smith. No one in that company is the least bit self-aware about what they did to themselves. Good for us, bad for them. I won’t be surprised to see them try to bid for some of the divestitures and Nexstar refuses to do business with them.

    Out and About

    I’d laugh if the CourtTV IP deal with Katz includes the exclusive rerun rights to Forensics Files, given that it was CourtTV that commissioned the show in the first place.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Armstrong Williams should know better that to open his mouth and beg to buy more stations, given that Howard Stirk is operating under the same pretenses as their proposed car dealership licensee of WGN-TV, a proposition that undoubtedly caused the other Republican commissioners to reject their Tribune merger attempt and prompted Pai to actually display some toughness. It’s like he doesn’t think that anyone is going to look into Stirk’s operations and find out that he’s someone who is only, ONLY in the business because he’s very close friends with David Smith. Science is wrong. We have found something way more dense than a black hole.

    Chris Bradley ends cancer treatment, moves into hospice care

    I got my streets confused; it's a stretch of Oaktree Boulevard south of Rockside that has a ceremonial rename for the Chuckster.

    New KOLR Graphics / Possible New Nexstar Package?

    But at the same time, it also bears a very slight resemblance to the current logos for WKRN and WATN.

    Chris Bradley ends cancer treatment, moves into hospice care

    That would be a nice tribute. If I’m not mistaken, there is a stretch of Rockside Road in the Cleveland suburb of Independence that was ceremoniously renamed for longtime WGAR personality Chuck Collier after his sudden passing (the iHeart Cleveland cluster has their studio facilities on that road).

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Hell, Nexstar has never fully integrated graphics packages on the legacy MG stations (and I’m not even counting the infamous MG crescent that some logos may never remove). That being said, both Nexstar and Tribune have very good graphics departments, and it’s interesting to note that both companies have made their own take on the CBS O&O graphics pack. I fully expect both departments to join forces.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    I'd have no idea. Hagerstown is just too close to DC, far away from every other market and too small of a city to sustain a separate market designation that's not in the upper 100s.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    If anything, having Hagerstown be lumped in with the Washington, DC market hurt then-WHAG, as it gave NBC full motive to disaffiliate from the station. (It would have happened anyway, as seen in Elko, NV and Atlantic City, but this was without a doubt.) Nexstar would probably make sure that the markets aren't separated, as they can say that WHAG is a news-intensive independent in a top-10 market, even as that claim stretches the truth to its' limits. WDVM isn't WGN-TV, nor is it KRON, for goodness sakes. WDCW could farm out their news to WUSA or WRC, and it would fare better than another attempt by WTVR (or WRIC). After all, WPVI produces a 10pm newscast for WPHL, and that arrangement benefits both stations.
