Carolyn Chambers, founder-CEO of Chambers Communications, which owns four Oregon stations — KEZI, KOHD, KDRV and KDKF — died Monday after a long fight with cancer. She was 79. She was also the founder of cable operator Liberty Communications which was sold in 1983 to John Malone for $186 million.
Dish Network has reached a new programming agreement with Chambers Communications Corp., restoring KEZI Eugene, KDRV Medford and KOHD Bend that had been missing from its lineup since mid-December.
Dish Network said Thursday that Chambers Communications pulled its ABC affiliates in Bend, Eugene, Klamath Falls and Medford, Ore., from the satellite service at 12:01 a.m. on Dec. 16 after the two could not reach an agreement.
