Station Group CEO

Station Group CEO (8/8)



  1. They have also done nothing to solve any of the issues, particularly how it will essentially be one company. The clock is likely to run out on this one.
  2. KXLY is the market leader in ratings, correct?
  3. "De facto" doesn't matter. It's not part of the official Columbus market.
  4. All the other major TV companies are in the same position. Ironically, they had Tegna in the best shape, despite the proxy wars and attempted sale.
  5. If the deal dies, I can guarantee that Soo Kim will sue Tegna to the moon.
  6. Not their problem. It's a different market.
  7. There's always InfoWars for her.
  8. That hour might end up with station owner-produced programming as well, instead of newscasts, on some stations, according to what executives are thinking.
  9. The blackmailing by Soo Kim has been ridiculous. IMO, if they went with the Allen deal, it would be done by now. I can think of a few other paths once the outside date comes: 1) Stay with the status quo, but that may be impossible with lawsuit threats. 2) Find another option and merge with them, create a new company (presumably as Tegna) with a mix of people and block out Soo Kim. One possibility is acquiring the Hearst stations, have some Hearst people involved in the new company and shove Soo Kim and Standard General (and Apollo) to the curb. Can it be done without hedge funds of any kind though? 3) Accept the Allen offer, but they didn't the first time...
  10. They were much more straightforward though. The former involved stations that largely fit each other cleanly and the latter was involving low-rated stations and creating duopolies that were legal. There are many complications here - hedge funds involved, no clarity on overlapping markets and foreign ownership laws.
  11. It could be heading for rejection. Tegna's best play right now might be to walk away.
  12. It seems the foreign money may be what kills the deal thanks to the ownership being hedge funds based in the BVI and Caymans.
  13. In most cases, that would be good to have a 3 hour delayed Nightly News at 10:00. If there is really big news, they could have a special live one produced at 10:00 PT (1:00 ET). If local news started at 10:30 pm (9:30 pm CT) or 10:35 pm (9:35 pm CT), they could have an hour-long late news or some other special if the 11:00 pm (10:00 pm CT) half hour stayed with affiliates. Otherwise, late night shows starting at 11:05 pm (10:05 pm CT)? (My preference would be 1 hour with affiliates, from 10:35 to 11:35, for hour-long late newscasts or news/sports shows or the like).
  14. OAN is poison outside of the MAGA base now that we know who they are and that they always push conspiracies. No legitimate journalism entity would touch them with a 10-foot pole. They make Fox News look like the AP.
