Breaking: Meredith to possibly exit the TV business

Post by mtburb » Thu May 02, 2019 9:22 am

The fast-paced changing TV industry continues to roil on...this time, Meredith wants out.

This will include WNEM in the Flint/Saginaw market.

My furthest DTV tropo: KDKA Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania at 202 miles for three days in January 2017 and a night in September 2017 with only an Antennas Direct C2V!

Current setup: Antennas Direct C2Max (2018-present)

Have you seen the product lately? Meredith is already out of the TV biz.

The Nickel needs a major overhaul. But keep Meg!

Now we know why they moved so suddenly to dismiss the lawsuit and avoid a costly trial.

Best hire they’ve had in a while. Logical replacement for Colette. Now if Custer would leave...

I'll buy it for $5.55. Take a check?

Is it a post-dated, out of town, third party check? They’ll probably take it!

Good one for Sinclair to buy! 12 would be next!

Doubt Sinclair or Gray would be eligible to keep TV5 due to their current ownership. It would likely be challenged by the FCC.

It appears that Sinclair is close to buying up the Fox Sports regional networks from Disney.

That would give Sinclair a presence in Detroit, Flint, Grand Rapids, Traverse City, Toledo and South Bend (the last two markets cover some of Michigan's most southern tier of counties). With FDS, it has nearly a 100% potential reach via cable carriage in the Mitten state.
