Sinclair Broadcast Group will carry Grit — the male-centric over-the-air broadcast television network — in 47 markets as part of a major new distribution agreement with Katz Broadcasting announced today by Jeffrey Wolf, chief distribution officer for Grit.


Among the markets where Sinclair stations will launch Grit are: Seattle; Minneapolis; St. Louis; Portland, Ore.; Pittsburgh; Raleigh, N.C.; Baltimore; Nashville; Columbus, Ohio; Milwaukee; Oklahoma City; Norfolk, Va.; Asheville, N.C.; and Buffalo, N.Y.

no timeframe as of yet. Now this begs the question. In say Minneapolis there is CW on -1, GetTV on -2 and Zuus Country on -3. Will they add a -4 or drop say Country?

now I see Trip has **tentatively** put info on the rabbitears site. Unitl the channel launches we don't know what will happen in some markets (if a station is dropped or will it be added to an existing mux)
The only sure example so far is in Baltimore. A press release says it will be on 24-2 (Trip had it put under 45-3)

Their media contact person never responds when I ask where things are going, so I can only do a best guess.

Which press release? I missed that one.

hopefully Sinclair launches it soon. When they signed the deal with GetTV in June (around the 23rd/24th) on July 1 it was added in markets. So hope this is added quickly too

Although the channel is not on yet, Titan tv listings for Nashville shows WeatherNation on 17.2 where Grit tv is suppose to be.

someone posted it will be on WNAB
The Television Subchannel Drama still continues for the Sinclair Broadcast Group Owned & Opperated Stations in Nashville, As it is now Confirmed that GritTVNetwork will be on a Subchannel of WNAB. It is unknown that if that Network will replace ZUUS Country (Which currently airs on Channel 58.2) or move it to a New Subchannel. It is also unknown if WeatherNation will be added to WZTV FOX 17 News, Nashville's Digital Subchannel of 17.2,
