Unless CBS wants to Buy WOIO/WUAB and make it better or WKRC switches from NBC to CBS (Tegna is the largest operator of CBS stations in terms of overall market reach, owning 15 CBS-affiliated stations  that reach 8.9% of the country.) there is not much CBS can do to get out of the spot they are in for Cleveland. We know Gray won't be able to compete with either WJW or WEWS. If WOIO/WUAB becomes a CBS/CW O&O. It could be run similar to KDKA/WPCW and do pretty well.

WKRC?

I fixed it to include the correct station. 

That makes even more sense. I can't see WKYC switching affiliates. It's more likely CBS could buy WOIO (which isn't gonna happen anytime soon as Gray won't sell)

Not to mention, thing that'd draw CBS to buy stations is the Cleveland Browns, which have only just come out of a long slump. Cleveland sports teams have never done particularly well for the most part. Only the Caveliers have really bucked the trend.

CBS could buy any of the other stations in Cleveland.  Nexstar wouldn't give up WJW and neither would Scripps with WEWS.  Maybe Tegna might surrender WKYC.  Then there's WBNX.  Not to mention WVPX and WDLI.

 

The last thing WOIO needs though is another affiliate switch.  It was a rough go the first time in 1994.  Not sure they would want to repeat it again.
