  1. This only commits Sinclair to ending a certain type of must-run. Note that Sinclair is committing themselves to more "investigative journalism", not specifically local reporting.
  2. The Cowles stations in Washington state and Montana were hit by a cyber attack: https://www.spokesman.com/stories/2019/dec/10/khq-tv-part-of-cyber-attack-that-hit-news-stations/
  3. Comcast is the parent company, NBCUniversal is their content generation subsidiary.
  4. The production studios are remaining separate: https://deadline.com/2019/12/viacom-cbs-reunion-different-course-tv-production-units-cbs-television-studios-paramount-television-1202801749/
  5. The Paramount Pictures end board has a byline with Viacom's font that will need to be updated; time will tell if the exact stylization will be used.
  6. The discount is actually based on a station's PSIP, so any-post repack change wouldn't affect its eligibility.
  7. The press release says that this reduces Nexstar's effective reach by .7% (through the UHF discount). Is that enough for them to be able to invoke the buy-back clause for WPIX?
  8. National Amusements has given its assent to the deal, which is on track for an early December closing.
  9. The Fox RSNs have different contracts that were negotiated by the previous owners. Any disputes involving them won't happen for a while. This will almost certainly effect talks to begin carriage of Marquee, a new network.
  10. The addresses for the correspondence information on those point to CBS, as they received the network in the split. Of course it'll all be one company again soon enough...
  11. A reversion to UPN wouldn't make any since, since United Television doesn't exist anymore and Paramount won't be involved in the network's operations post-merger, both currently and in this hypothetical situation (some shows from Paramount Television, which will currently remain a separate operation post-merger, may come to the network at most).
  12. KHQ in Spokane, WA will replace WWTBAM with the second repeat run of Jeopardy!, moved from its intended daypart in the the afternoon and leading in to the day's new episode. (25 Words or Less would have been a good choice, but KAYU will air the show there.)
  13. The sale of the YES Network to the Yankees/Sinclair/Amazon/private equity consortium closed today. Sinclair's press release stated that their share of YES has been assigned to Diamond Sports, and that they are now handling the channel's carriage deals, both traditional and virtual.
  14. Sinclair Broadcast sees 'massive opportunity' to rebrand Fox sports networks (Link might be paywalled)
  15. CBS will be the nominal survivor, since the deal is structured so that Viacom's shareholders will get .59625 CBS shares for every Viacom share.
