If this does come to pass,  I wonder if Fox would be interested in selling MyNetworkTV to Sinclair.  It's not much of anything aside from Dateline reruns and the like, and Sinclair was a major partner in their launch. 

 

If Sinclair tried the NewsNation approach to it, they would succeed much more and have much better reach than Nexstar does with NN itself.

I wonder if Nexstar will actively move the CW affiliations off of competing stations and onto .2s or junior stations they control.

And WNCN has launched their 4:00 pm newscast. No more temperature, just time. The open seems to be some in-house modifications of the generic Nexstar CBS open. New VO, but I can't tell who. CBS Local remains, but now they're using the same cuts as WKYT.

You can see that Nexstar doesn't put any value into their art direction. That "Local News That Matters" text is just a hastily implemented Video Copilot plugin.

See the "WFLA, but even cheaper" vibe here, and you can see why this station is such an easy divestiture option should Nexstar end up buying The CW.

That voiceover sounds like the automated female caption voice from Instagram.

How could they be that cheap?? Again, this station is not worth your time. Watch WRAL or WTVD instead. 

The sad thing is, it's still more competitive than WRDC ever was.

Looks like KXAN is going to be switching over to a variation on the the WISH/WTNH graphics, based on maps posted to their social media today. The existing look is a 2015 refresh of one that launched in 2011, so it's definitely time for something new.

Does Nexstar Really think they will be able to compete against the unbeatable WRAL and ABC O&O WTVD? If I were Nexstar, I would sell this station to CBS Already. Raleigh is a growing market and how poor this is proves that either Nexstar has given up or doesn't care. CBS could do so much better if this station was an O&O again.

WJMN just changed their logo on Facebook to remove the CBS eye. Not sure if this signals a change or is merely cosmetic.

Haha. They admire WRCB's...creative aspects, even though Nexstar popularised the branding. Unrelated stations don't need the same branding.

Nexstar does not think they will be able to compete against WRAL and WTVD. Their main/only market are people who are loyal CBS viewers and went mad by the fact WRAL lost its CBS affiliation. In other words, all of the ex-Outlet operated TV stations are in ruins.

 

WCMH has a weak anchor team and poor graphics. They are a divestiture option for Nexstar, though.

WJAR is just your regular Sinclair station. Obvious Fact: WJAR and WCMH have the same VO.

WLWC is now just an empty shell after Michael Dell mercilessly sold it's spectrum and CW affiliation. They have a virtual channel assignment, and CourtTV accessible on that VC. That's it.

You can see what Nexstar did to WNCN, right here on this thread!

And lastly, WWHO is owned by a guy named Stephen P. Mumblow. There is not much money being invested in this station besides the engineering department.

360 is retained. They can do away with the unnecessary 3D, gradients are superior. Also, I WISH that Nexstar would stop offering this package to stations since Circle City has since bought its original user.

Despite WJMN losing its CBS affiliate, ViacomCBS and Nexstar renew their CBS network affiliate deals in 39 markets.

https://deadline.com/2022/01/viacomcbs-nexstar-affiliate-distribution-renewals-cbs-cw-1234917207/

From how the Marquette fiasco seems to have gone, the mass renewal is less “despite WJMN” and more “because WJMN”
