    Cox sells majority TV interest to Apollo

    They'll probably keep it so they can have an in-house national sales division (and probably also use it for the Northwest stations, which Apollo are also reportedly acquiring).

    2019 AAF Season

    They just showed highlights from today's game with the CBS graphics during a Super Bowl LIII rebroadcast, so it looks like the NFL Network broadcasts will be produced by CBS.

    One problem though. A move of "Fox 29" to WHDT would run afoul of the rule the FCC put in place a few years ago that makes such moves subject to the top four rule.

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    The list on the TVNewsCheck article lists the markets where they overlap. They have to divest a station in at least 13 of those 15 markets, but Washington-Hagerstown might be one of the two where they won't have to make a divestiture.

    Yeah, they eventually reached a consent decree with the FCC and had to pay $110K to the US Treasury. https://docs.fcc.gov/public/attachments/DA-13-2036A1.pdf
