deal could be announced tomorrow if so Antenna TV gone from like WDAF.
I am sure the other stations with nothing on it would pick up whatever YOU THINK YOUR LOSING while, IF ANY deal is being made....I knew that. Was just talking about 4.2 and TBD becuase Comet TV is already on 5.2. Charge would be good because just on a low power station. 4.3,will not change.
I almost want to say that if all Sinclair wants to do with WGN America is air reruns, they should just flip WGN to a simulcast of one of their various subchannels, or perhaps use WGN to launch the rumored "Antenna TV Classic". They could still keep the WGN branding for a while if needed per affiliate contracts.
95 percent of Hearst subnets are Weigel owned. Sinclair will own Antenna/This. So don't look for WDAF to lose those two.Deal has happened so Meredith KSMOTV picks up Antenna TV,Hearst back up This TV. 4.2 Charge,4.3 TBD,4.4 ASN. St. Louis sells one of it's stations.
Sounds like a great story, especially coming from you. I let you in on the St. Louis situation. KTVI is Fox/Antenna/Escape and KPLR is CW/This/Comet. Sinclair keeps both because you only have one of the big 4. This is the exact same set up in New Orleans except WGNO is ABC/Antenna/Escape and WNOL is identical to KPLR. When the deal is done both St. Louis and New Orleans stations stay because there is only one big 4 that Tribune ownes in both Markets.Deal has happened so Meredith KSMOTV picks up Antenna TV,Hearst back up This TV. 4.2 Charge,4.3 TBD,4.4 ASN. St. Louis sells one of it's stations.
