  1. It is a CBS test pattern. WCIA (which streams most of the CBS' special reports on its YouTube channel) had a stream of CBS' coverage of Trump's second impeachment trial and after the coverage ended, they kept the stream going for a few more minutes, and it displayed the same test pattern. In this case, KXJB probably accidentally switched to the network feed when they intended to air Jeopardy.
  2. The Supreme Court has reinstated the new FCC broadcast ownership rules that were put in place under Ajit Pai. NOT an April Fools joke. https://www.nexttv.com/news/supreme-court-overturns-third-circuit-smackdown-of-broadcast-dereg https://www.supremecourt.gov/opinions/20pdf/19-1231_i425.pdf
  3. SW Florida and West Palm Beach are separate markets, so that wouldn't cause any issues with the FCC. The only thing they would have to do is sell the ION station in Miami and possibly another one elsewhere to comply with the national ownership cap.
  4. According to the engineering exhibit in the FCC application, WIAV-CD requested (and ultimately received) a waiver to broadcast at 48 kW in order to reduce interference from WETA, which broadcasts on channel 31, right next to WIAV-CD which is on channel 30.
  5. Dish and Cox have agreed on a one-week extension to avoid a blackout until October 8th. https://tvanswerman.com/2020/10/02/dish-cox-media-avoid-new-blackout-for-now/
  6. KGBT's non-license assets (including the programming and news operation) are being relinquished completely to Nexstar. Sinclair will continue to own the KGBT license with Estrella TV and various diginets. Also, with Nexstar getting KGBT's news operation, KVEO 23.1 may finally get actual local news, since KVEO currently has news produced by KTSM in El Paso with only a few local reporters in the Valley.
  7. KGBT's programming will move to KVEO 23.2 tonight/tomorrow morning at 12:01. https://valleycentral.com/news/local/cbs-4-over-the-air-programming-to-begin-airing-on-channel-232-tuesday
  8. Berkshire Hathaway and Graham did own stakes in each other, but as part of the WPLG deal Graham bought back most of Berkshire's shares in Graham and Berkshire bought back Graham's shares in Berkshire.
  9. CBSN New York and CBSN Los Angeles have been added to Viacom's free streaming service Pluto TV.
  10. There are a few stations, like WETA in Washington, that are rebroadcasting the hearings in primetime, even though PBS itself is not. The WORLD channel (which airs on the subchannels of many PBS stations) is doing the same.
  11. A Chicago Tribune article says that Nexstar intends to "operate the heck out of" WGN America and they plan to use their stations to promote WGN America programming, but if they got an offer they couldn't refuse, they could consider selling it. I haven't seen anything about Antenna TV, but things probably will stay the same there.
  12. With Nexstar reaching a new affiliation deal with Fox that also covers the Tribune stations, a sale of any stations to Fox probably won't happen unless Nexstar wants to clear up cap space to exercise its option to buy WPIX back or buy other stations.
  13. According to Wikipedia, WTTV 4.2 is still using the "Indiana's 4.2" branding.
  14. Here is the purchase agreement from Sinclair's SEC filing. The licensing agreement was redacted from the filing.
