Many thanks for the info.They already had the funeral on this deal...
"...termination, effective May 9,2017, of the Asset Purchase Agreement.. based on Buyer's failure to provide Proof of Financing.."
With public files online, you can find anything. Here's the termination letter filed with the FCC.

So, my earlier hunch from many months ago was correct - the purchase was unable to close because Blarney Stone was unable to obtain financing.
Now that Blarney Stone is operating the Henderson stations via an apparent LMA, I would be a little uneasy if I were Northern. Blarney Stone has had access to client lists and all sorts of intellectual property with respect to Northern's stations for the past couple years, and now, they'll be competing against those same stations!
