    Gray buying KDLT

    Probably dormant or dead. The deal is not legal and probably not worthy of a waiver.

    Sinclair Broadcast Group - General Discussion

    Their GM is resigning too, largely because of how Sinclair handled this. Maybe he'll find a job somewhere else under another owner in a bigger market and hand Alex a contract? (Even if a smaller market, they could give her a lead anchor job). This is 100% made in Hunt Valley.

    Sinclair Broadcast Group - General Discussion

    Heartless. If not for the non-compete, if I were a News Director at WRCB or WDEF, I'd be throwing an instant offer for her when she's ready.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    I wouldn't count him as "minority ownership" at all. After all, it is Sinclair that is calling the shots and funding them, it is a shell company and not truly a minority-owned company.

    New KOLR Graphics / Possible New Nexstar Package?

    And if Nexstar sells it for WPMT...that may change yet again...

    Out and About

    The irony is there is no such route as I-21.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Some of the legacy Nexstar stations have been phasing out those domains as well. As for Tribune Digital, that might just shut down; unlike when they acquired Media General, this is a straight purchase (no Tribune bosses come along) while parts of Media General still sit in the Nexstar ownership structure.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    I believe if WYOU/WBRE are spun off, they have to be sent to separate companies as it is a grandfathered LMA. That would create additional hurdles.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    No realistic buyer would make them happy when you consider the Starboard Value demands.

    I'm doing math and will post it in the Speculatron, but they will certainly need to sell a large chunk of the stations.

    KTVA newsroom sustains major earthquake damage

    Does the cable company GCI have any other offices? If they are in any decent shape, they could work out of them. But yeah that is awful. I hope there were no injuries there.

    Sinclair Broadcast Group - General Discussion

    Sinclair has become a four-letter word in professional journalism. I think they are having trouble filling a lot of jobs due to lack of interest. I don't think ANYONE believes them...this is pure damage control and nothing else. Probably getting smackdowns from Cordillera, and presumably Cox, are hurting their feelings as well.

    The Tribune Saga, Part 3: New Sale Talks

    They would have to sell one of them.

    Question about Market/Network Dominance

    Are there any markets where they are ALL so inept that they are screaming for a new competitor? Or that a local cable news channel is competitive?
