Beginning today June 14, 2020 at 6AM EDT DirecTV has dropped: KNBC, KABC, KCBS, WCBS, KTTV, WNBC, WABC, WNYW & WDCW. Because congress didn't reauthorize the S.T.E.L.L.A.R. Act that allowed them to carry these stations. They dropped them for 3 days back in April and then got an extension, but that extension has now expired. They are running Info channels to let viewers know why these stations are no longer available.
Word around is that Sam is in talks with WABC to return - as weather anchor for EWN @ noon and 4PM. As you may know, once you leave WABC, you generally aren't welcomed back - so this would be a shift from the norm - but since he left for network and not local competition, the "rule" might not apply in this case.
