  1. This also caught my eyes. https://www.ftvlive.com/sqsp-test/2021/1/11/for-now
  2. The articles DO mention that the entire TV division may be sold.
  3. A total sale would be Gray's to lose. But a partial sale would leave open different possibilities - Scripps isn't any of those markets, neither is Hearst.
  4. I bumped back up the Speculatron thread. I do believe it will be a complete sale of their TV division though.
  5. It also mentions they might sell all the stations as well.
  6. It would be virtually impossible. The only way I can see Nexstar with WGCL is if an owner already in the market (i.e. Cox or Tegna) acquired Meredith. Unless they are looking at another station (i.e. the CBS-owned CW station)? Of the 12 markets that Meredith is in, Nexstar is in 9 of them. That's a deal that will NEVER work.
  7. I know Astrid Martinez threw all her anger out - at Meredith, not the GM or ND at the station. I wonder if she would return to WGCL under different ownership?
  8. These graphics...look almost identical to some of the Gray packages. It's almost as if they have the same designer.
  9. WFSB would probably relish the thought of someone else coming in, as in new ownership.
  10. If I were to make an opinion: Alabama - WBRC Alaska - KTUU Arizona - KOLD Arkansas - KHBS California - KCRA Colorado - KOAA Connecticut - WVIT Delaware - None WRDE (it's done enough to deserve a spot) Florida - WJXT Georgia - WSB Hawaii - KGMB Idaho - KIVI Illinois - WLS Indiana - WNDU Iowa - KCCI Kansas - KMBC KSNW Kentucky - WLKY Louisiana - WDSU Maine - WMTW WABI Maryland - WJZ WBOC Massachusetts - WHDH WCVB Michigan - WDIV Minnesota - WCCO Mississippi - WLOX
  11. That was when they were desperate to run away from Soo Kim in what was seen as a hostile takeover.
  12. Some of them make real good sense, while others like KECI, KTVL and KVAL really don't make much sense. They will lose some of their coverage area and will need fill-in translators. Mountainous areas are better in VHF.
  13. Some of them didn't air it live but also tape delayed it.
  14. Maybe Biden will make a deal with someone else, like Nexstar? I also heard that the Sinclair-owned ABC affiliates did not air the Biden town hall last night. I know KOMO and WJLA, at least, did not air it.
  15. Those at WOIO were probably excited when Raycom went away, since they were terrible for them.
  16. I'd expect the obvious states (i.e. California, New York, Oklahoma, West Virginia) to be called right away. But otherwise I think they will wait - and it could be a long wait.
  17. Also I believe WILX and WLNS are very close in ratings so there isn't a dominant force there?
  18. KATC has a tough job since there are no sister stations close by to help them out, a big advantage that KLFY has (the other Nexstar stations can send more reporters to Acadiana from elsewhere in the region).
  19. Vidalia could just be used as satellites for nearby Gray stations - perhaps satellites of WTOC and WALB.
  20. Back to the layoffs, are there any more forthcoming? I think the Q3 finances in early November will be a tell-tale.
  21. I suspect that the moment that another company, such as Graham, Cox or Gray, gets their hands on WFSB she will be cut loose.
  22. The publishing division will be next to impossible to sell. I agree the Time purchase was catastrophic for the company (and then they sold it at a big loss).
  23. If they are so cash strapped, they should just sell the stations and accept it at, say, $1.5 billion. That would give them the money for magazine operations through the pandemic.
  24. Probably making things cheaper for a company sale.
  25. Especially when they have far less footprint than Nexstar or Gray.
