I like the logo, however the colors in the graphics clash with the logo.  For the gfx, they should've gone with a blue/red scheme instead of blue/yellow.

I meant to post this when Nexstar took over a couple of weeks ago.  Says new set.  Not sure where it will go. 

 

 

FOX package and a set in the box but Tribune didn't own them Sinclar did.

I have a personal hatred for that cut of the CBS Local Package. Out of all the News cuts, they could've done so much better.

It looks like WHNT modeled its updated logo after KFOR's.

They're similar but not the way you're thinking

Let me guess it was Sinclair who messed this one up.

That's not a typo or an error. Many Nexstar stations that were former Tribune outlets (plus WJZY, and now WDKY) have that licensee name, Tribune Media Company.

Well that’s not right and even Nexstar knows that

Or perhaps because this was a settlement of the whole Sinclair and Tribune fiasco that the licensee name is actually correct.   Otherwise it would not accurately reflect what took place.   Sinclair is correct.

 

Nexstar could certainly use the Tribune Media name for that station, since they are the legal successor to the company (if I understand right).   But they'll likely "assign" WDKY from Tribune to Nexstar, for license purposes, in due course.

Under Nexstar's current corporate structure, Tribune Media Company is a subsidiary of Nexstar. Look at page 3 of this PDF, and it shows a graph of their current corporate structure.

 

I remember when Nexstar completed its Media General merger, Nexstar had MG stations with seventeen different licensee names (i.e., Media General Communications, LIN Television Corporation, Young Broadcasting of Richmond, TVL Broadcasting of Rhode Island, etc.). They did a pro forma reorganizing months after and changed the licensee of each of those stations to Nexstar Broadcasting, Inc. 

 

I'm not sure when they do another restructuring to change those Tribune licensee names to Nexstar, and TTYTT, I can care less if they ever do. Because in the end, these are Nexstar stations, no matter what licensee name each station is.

Fox still uses New World Communications for some of their licenses, with Gannett using Pacific & Southern, which most of us have never known as an active company (it was swept into Combined Communications in the early 70s and Gannett purchased Combined in 1979, then they Katamari'ed Multimedia in the 90s, Belo and even King Broadcasting for the KING stations, and everything stayed the same with the spin-off into Tegna). If they keep Tribune as a licensee for years, there won't be a problem; all the mail eventually gets to Nexstar.
