  1. The list of stations preempting LIV Golf is getting smaller. Erie, PA was removed from the list. Nexstar/Mission has WJET and WFXP in the market, the latter of which was airing it on their Antenna TV subchannel. Lilly Broadcasting's WSEE-DT2 is the current CW affiliate and is presumably clearing it.
  2. There are some potential scheduling conflicts with Xfinity races. Who gets bumped to NewsNation?
  3. Nexstar Stations In Chicago, Norfolk, Lafayette, La., To Become CW Affils
  4. Scripps is looking to sell Bounce TV.
  5. The Hill Sunday with Chris Stirewalt will begin airing on CW affiliates this Sunday.
  6. The CW is nearing a deal with the remnants of the Pac-12.
  7. More affiliation changes are coming.
  8. The CW is planning a Sunday morning political talk show with The Hill.
  9. The CW Spells Out Quest to Be Considered a Major Network Alongside the ‘Big 4’
  10. The graphics have been tweaked.
  11. Some of Tegna's CW affiliates that refused to air LIV Golf (KCWI, KSKN, WLMT) will now clear it for the 2024 season. Nexstar/CW is also in talks for IndyCar rights.
  12. According to this SBJ article, Nexstar purchased Paramount's 12.5% stake late last year.

  14. ...has closed multi-year deals with major broadcast groups including Nexstar, Sunbeam, Cox Media, Weigel, and Mission Broadcasting in well over a 100 U.S broadcast markets, including all of the top 10. Sounds like it will air primarily on CW stations.
  15. The CW Unveils New Branding Look, Dropping the ‘The’ and Embracing a ‘Hot Sauce’ Color Palette (EXCLUSIVE)
  16. Ratings for the GOP debate are in. 1.6 million on NewsNation. 2.5 million on The CW.
  17. I did some exploring on this, and sure enough Fox treated Smackdown as a sports property (they even put them in the Fox Sports intro!). That changed this summer when Fox recategorized them as an entertainment show. As far as Raw and NXT goes, NBCU has always classified them as entertainment programming. We'll have to wait and see if The CW decides to air NXT under their CW Sports banner. As for AEW, it appears that they were also reclassified from sports to entertainment when Discovery took over WarnerMedia.
  18. KUNS will be the new CW affiliate in Seattle. Univision is being dropped. They declined being moved to a subchannel.
  19. The CW will simulcast the next GOP debate.
  20. In today's earnings call, Nexstar teased that more CW affiliation changes will be announced in the coming weeks.
  21. Kevin Adell has sent a cease and desist letter to WMYD to stop the CW affiliation. Official article (paywalled).
  22. Here's a pro wrestling-worthy swerve. The CW is reportedly close to picking up WWE NXT.
  23. WMYD's CW affiliation is officially announced. That leaves the question of what happens with Mission's pending acquisition of WADL.
