    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Apparently, it is since how someone had the information about the intentions of KXNW and posted it on Wikipedia

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Somebody put that on the KFSM Wikipedia site

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    Nexstar is keeping KXNW with KNWA/KFTA forming a de-facto triopoly with plans to turn KXNW into a semi-satellite station

    Nexstar to acquire Tribune

    I'm surprised that Conrad hasn't came out about this, he would've done that a lot earlier. But he's been quiet so apparently he may have FINALLY gotten the message. We shall see

    Fox in talks to sell to Disney

    It might be somewhat a moot point but, the Illitch's still might pull a Boston with what the Bruins and the Red Sox did launched NESN. and what's currently known as Fox Sports Detroit would become the Midwest's version of NBC Sports Boston (which has exclusive rights to the NBA's Boston Celtics and MLS' New England Revolution) It just depends on what the Illitch Family decides to do

    Correct, Platinum is run by Tom Gores

    Fox in talks to sell to Disney

    This is somewhat related. NY Post is reporting that Media Mogul John Malone is eyeing a purchase of the MSG Regional Sports Networks should he be successful in purchasing the 21 former Fox Regional Sports Networks,

    Out & About

    Basically, KFMB would've still been sold off it'd just been delayed. So I'm sure she was glad to have sold KFMB off when she did because that could've been a mess at the FCC

    Fox in talks to sell to Disney

    And if THIS tweet is correct it'll be well before June 2oth before they find a buyer (the only question mark becomes will Disney be able to complete the sale of the FSNs in 90 days or less?) https://twitter.com/CGasparino/status/1105477695301914624

    Nexstar...again

    Did Media General make its stations use names like centralohiomatters.com or some crap like that? No they did not. Each group makes mistakes there human just like anyone of us here are, even you and I make our own mistakes too. Nobody's perfect, not even the best TV groups with well-run management are perfect either.

    Nexstar...again

    Yes it does. Because without the Media General merger Nexstar would still be making the same mistakes they made pre-MG

    Scripps - General Discussion

    I wonder why Scripps hasn't fired the KGUN management team? I guess the KGUN management team hasn't given Scripps a legitimate reason to fire them

    Nexstar...again

    Media General decided to bring in the leadership team over from LIN (which has since carried over to Nexstar)
  14. oknewsguy

    Nexstar...again

    Here's the deal with Nexstar: Yes the Media General merger and its influence has made an impact on Nexstar (and I fully expect the Tribune acquisition to be the same for Nexstar) and they will be better post-Tribune than they were post-Media General, now do I think Nexstar is wayyyy better? No I don't and here's why: Nexstar is still making some of the same mistakes that they've been doing before the Media General acquisition (i.e WHTM using the old bug) but this is like that with any other group you look at. Every group you look at no matter how big or small you will find flaws in each and every broadcast group you run into.

    February 2019 Sweeps Roundup

    Actually there are a few CBS affiliates that start at 4am (KWTV is among that group)

    February 2019 Sweeps Roundup

    I'm very surprised at how many stations don't do 4am news, why does Hearst not like having 4am newscasts so much? Is it because they're afraid of someone like Peter Van Zeert (or whoever his name is) attacking the TV stations for replacing syndicated programming with newscasts?
  17. oknewsguy

    February 2019 Sweeps Roundup

    Or expanded the morning newscast to 4am (I don't think very many Hearst stations do morning news from 4-7am outside of WVTM and a few others)

    Sinclair Broadcast Group - General Discussion

    I sure hope this outcome happens and quite frankly, that's all Sinclair has to do in order to get back into the good graces of the FCC. It's not that difficult whatsoever.

    Sinclair Broadcast Group - General Discussion

    Sinclair won't likely go that far (and besides I don't think it'll sit well with the FCC)
  20. It's official: The Yankees have reportedly teamed up with Amazon, Sinclair, and others and are buying back YES Network from Disney for nearly 3 and a half billion dollars ($3.47 Billion to be exact)

    Sinclair Broadcast Group - General Discussion

    Sinclair has two very simple choices to make: Option A: They come to their senses, admit they did, in fact, mislead the FCC about the divestiture proceedings in the Tribune acquisition; Sinclair might be able to get back into the FCC's good graces . Option B: Continue to claim that they "didn't" mislead the FCC, and eventually, Sinclair will have to face the possibility of either selling the stations they/'re renewing the licenses for or face possible termination of the licenses. Just based off of the options being made (and what Sinclair continues to say regarding the failed Tribune acquisition) I think, Option B is more likely than Option A.

    Sinclair Broadcast Group - General Discussion

    Outside of maybe Sports but I don't think any professional sports team outside of maybe the bigger markets (i.e Chicago, NYC, LA, Boston, Miami) will be willing to deal with Sinclair's antics. On the sports-related question, do you think Disney is willing to deal with Sinclair with regards to the 21 former Fox RSNs? And how would the DOJ feel about Sinclair (potentially) purchasing those 21 FSNs? As for the broadcast side of things, it's safe to say that Sinclair clearly wants to go down the RKO General path, and they've done a good job at it but, ultimately, that's what will lead to an eventual breakup (and knowing Sinclair's stance on the abandoned Tribune acquisition and the claims that they "did not" misled the FCC) it's not going to be a pretty one.

    So overall TEGNA-itis hasn't affected WWL nearly as bad as what some people on this forum claim it to be. It has affected WWL somewhat but not enough to send WWL to 3rd or 4th place as of yet

    February 2019 Sweeps Roundup

    Oh, how the mighty has fallen in Dallas with Channel 8. But overall, the Dallas market is actually very competitive.
