I wonder if there will be a swap with Antenna TV for one of Katz networks since Nexstar owns Antenna TV now that Nexstar has closed on the Tribune merger. Any network from Katz for Antenna TV I don't know if Scripps has Antenna on any of the sub-channels.

Meanwhile the fate of WGN America and WGN 720 remains up in the air. Nexstar is pure-play, they don’t do radio and a cable channel stripped of any/all meaning is not in their best interests, either.

Problem is, who’d really want 720? It’s a labor-intensive talk station with an aging audience, in a market where Cumulus informally put their stations on the block because they can’t compete with iHeart, Hubbard and Entercom.

The website has Scripps at the bottom no lighthouse thou also at the end of the newscast at 6:55PM had no mention of Scripps and said Tribune Broadcasting. I thought the lighthouse would've been shown since the sale is final I know no one cares.
