Cablevision Loses Tribune's WGN America, Hartford Fox Affiliate
Retrans standoff between companies enters second week

On Aug. 17, Cablevision pulled four Tribune station feeds, complaining that Tribune was demanding tens of millions in new fees: WPIX (The CW) in New York; WCCT (CW) in Waterbury, Conn.; KWGN (CW) in Denver; and Philadelphia's WPHL (MyNetwork). Cablevision saying Tribune was demanding tens of millions of dollars in new fees.
Cablevision has accused the broadcaster of trying to "illegally tie" an agreement to carry Hartford's WTIC with New York's WPIX and other stations, a charge Tribune denied.

Several other news outlets reported on Tribune's bankruptcy exit hitting a snag. Tribune may be better off selling out most of its newspaper and television station properties. I could picture...
Gannett getting WDCW (DC)
Belo getting KIAH (Houston) and KRCW (Portland)
Hearst getting WNOL (New Orleans)
Scripps getting WGNO (New Orleans)
Fox getting KCPQ-KZJO (Seattle) and KSWB (San Diego)
Sinclair getting KPLR (St. Louis)
Meredith getting KTXL (Sacramento)
Hope this Cablevision deal can be settled soon.
