I think the point I made over in Discord is a pretty valid one, I think that whatever corporate synergies that the stations at Sinclair had (and still has) pretty much went out the door today, I believe the WDKY sale despite having all sorts of synergies up in Cincy, West Virginia and Nashville was the first sign of what was to come from Sinclair.
Welp.. I kinda called that, I knew something had to happen to Sinclair because that RSN buy was just.. a bad buy and while Sinclair may be responsible for about $175 million or so of that debt however @WeetersI have to agree with Circle Seven on that one, even though it's only $28 million and it does put a dent into Sinclair's debt I would say in order for Sinclair to get all of the $175 million they're currently in debt paid off meaning that by the time the KBSI deal gets done they would still be close to $150 million in debt ($147 million to be exact), they would probably have to
And it's been approved.. https://wwd.com/business-news/media/meredith-shareholders-pave-way-for-potential-split-1234655819/ According to the article right now there's no imminent plans to split the 2 up all they did was by approving the charter, they made it easier to seperate the 2 divisions if they wanted to than what they had before. So no its not quite like what happened with Tribune.
It's quite possible, is it unlikely? Yeah but I wouldn't put it past seeing ABC with SNF especially if @jase is correct about the NFL not willing to give the Monday Night package the same flex scheduling Sunday Night has.
They should be because if those folks you just mentioned may be one of the very reasons why Disney is going after the SNF package a bit more aggressively than they are the Monday Night pkg. Disney wants the best matchups, that's what SNF provides and that's exactly what they want.
I firmly believe that regardless if ABC gets SNF, NBC with MNF or vise versa. I think its all but pretty much a gurantee that both the Peacock and the Alphabet networks are going to have what I believe is going to eventually become 2 of the better primetime packages for the NFL for the first time in perhaps, ever. It used to be that MNF was the better package and SNF not so much (because of being on cable) then when SNF moved to OTA (NBC) and MNF to cable (ESPN) in 2006 it flipped to SNF being the best primetime package and MNF not so much. Now that both primetime packages are in a
I wonder if they let COVID get in the way of closing the deal on time. Because I did read from your post back on February 13th that the FCC did greenlight the deal they had at least a month to complete the deal before the COVID shutdowns took place that's enough ample time for them to do so.
Speaking of rebrands, WHNT isn't the only ones that rebranded guess WHO just rebranded? Yeah, them. Not sure when they did it but after well over a decade in years and through ownership changes "Channel 13 News" is no more. It's now W-H-O 13 News, Link:
Also after nearly two decades the Primetime News at Nine name for the 9pm newscast has been retired its now just simply the Fox 25 News at 9.
Here's the photo for refrence (I do apologize to the west coast people seeing this as I took this when I was watching Jeopardy! which airs on KFOR here) Honestly the more I see it the more I think it can't be entirely Nexstar NBC pkg. What this might be looking more and more like a mix of Nexstar NBC and KOIN pkg. or this could be entirely be different. I'll let you weigh in on it.
Question and maybe @JohnnyNews can answer this. I've noticed that while KFOR is still on the Tribune pkg however at the bottom of the screen I'm starting to note hints of an eventual graphics change happening to KFOR. Is it what I'm thinking it is (the NBC Nexstar pkg) or is it a different Nexstar pkg (e.g. KOIN pkg, etc.)? I do have a screenshot of it but it's over on Discord.
You would think so but as Kent indicated to us on Discord last night, they're going to continue moving forward and rolling out this pkg in time for the election. I firmly believe that they've gone so far in on this project that there's no way they're going to delay it until next year. They want to get it right and not rushed like what we saw with WFLA's implementation of this pkg.
KDAF did indicate as @Georgie56 alluded to hope to have a news department reestablished by sometime next year so that shouldn't come as a surprise. I think ABC 26 is what WGNO will probably go with (or 26ABC with the newscast title possibly being 26 News or something like that) Considering WHO was able to keep The Tower, I do wonder if that could be what KFOR goes with Honestly the topic about the other Nexstar stations should be merged with the Tribune Nexstarization thread.
Honestly, I'm not exactly sure what Sinclair is doing here. They haven't even indicated anything yet what they're going to do with the RSNs and the fact they have to restructure the debt ($8 billion of them to be exact) I'm going to be honest and frank I keep saying that both Sinclair and Meredith are in really bad shape and what's going on with both companies is further proving my point that I keep making time after time after time. Granted I don't know what Sinclair's plans are they won't tell us anything but so far people like Rich Greenfield of LightShed have been p
