Interesting article about Tegna and the Dish dispute.
There is no official word on the TEGNA (TGNA) sale, despite a goal to finish talks or end them by New Year. Regulatory and financial obstacles are substantial.seekingalpha.com
"Among those is Charlie Ergen, DISH Network CEO, who dropped TEGNA stations three months ago and, with football over, is now highly unlikely to bring them back."
Football is over??? We haven't even gotten to the Super Bowl yet. The game is on my local NBC station and with my free OTA antenna from DISH, I can easily watch it. I get that if you want local news, you have other options in your local market so I can see why there would be no rush to make a deal.
Only getting news through social media is pretty wacked out and dangerous.....and it applies to both ends of the political spectrum.I think that it's Interesting Mr Allen believes local news is important..He must not have a wife with facebook or checked with people under 65 Our 3 daughters ages from 21thru32 don't watch anything but streaming TV and no news unless it's on some social media platform
