  1. I already posted that in the Nexstar thread.
  2. Y'all, Nexstar is trying to get KRBK. https://www.ozarksfirst.com/video/nexstar-to-acquire-krbk_20180802161330/1341474669 Don't know if it's been posted yet but better safe than sorry.
  3. Ok. Hearst did drop those networks off of WCWG. However, they left Bounce TV (also a Scripps network) on the lineup. Escape and Laff may stay for all we know.
  4. That's not happening. However, that doesn't mean that WTHR and WBNS can't be co-owned with the Cox stations at say, Meredith or Hearst.
  5. Where's the website? Just wondering.
  6. Ditto for me being from Louisiana (although I go to San Antonio a lot and have family out there). I'm a Texans and Saints fan.
  7. And the Saints. They're closer to Memphis than the Cowgirls are.
  8. I still think Cox would honor the sale of the seven stations that Sinclair sold to Fox. They'd have to renegotiate but I still feel like it would happen. Just my 2 cents.
  9. Not if they want a repeat of the Tribune acquisition. As much as Sinclair doesn't want to and would want to act like a petualant child, if they don't want additional heat, they will announce the divestiture of KIRO and any additional conflicts IMMEDIATELY. However, Sinclair has never been one to do that and in fact, had to be forced to sell stations from the Barrington and Allbritton acquisitions. And we all know the most recent story concerning a certain Illinois company. They may need to forgo an acquisition of Cox.
  10. They passed on WXXA initially but eventually got that in the Media General merger. Honestly, it's puzzling why Nexstar didn't just buy Newport altogether as some of the stations that went to Cox and Sinclair in some cases are better fits than the ones Nexstar did acquire.
  11. All Mission stations are operated by Nexstar. So yes it will.
  12. They made an abortive attempt to buy WHDH but we all know how that turned out.
  13. So, the people that bought KXJB now want to challenge the KCPM sale. Interesting turn of events.
  14. This would make sense, given that WUPW actually would be owned by Nexstar today if LIN would have kept it.
  15. Does Sinclair really need to do that anyway? Especially considering the fact that this deal actually has the possibility of being completed BEFORE Sinclair's deal gets completed.
  16. Ah. The meteorologist co anchoring. This is KSLA with Ron Young on the 9am newscast.
  17. What's an example of that? Just curious.
  18. I don't think it would result in a merger per se. I think MNT just goes away altogether.
