Aug 11, 2014  •  Post A Comment

A new agreement has given CBS a new home in one of the nation’s major markets. CBS Corporation and Tribune Media today announced a comprehensive long-term deal renewing their existing affiliation agreements and making Tribune’s WTTV the CBS affiliate in Indianapolis.

LIN Media’s WISH-TV will no longer be the CBS affiliate in Indianapolis, beginning Jan. 1, 2015.

Said Ray Hopkins, president of Television Networks Distribution for CBS Corporation: “There’s nothing more valuable to a local station than programming from the #1 television network, and Tribune Broadcasting has been a great partner in reaching this agreemen. We’re very pleased that Tribune recognized the full value that CBS brings to their business and brands across all of their stations included in this deal.”

  1. Is it just me or does the wreak of Lin not wanting to agree to lower compensation and network pre-emption rules so CBS went elsewhere in the market and got what they wanted?
