DirecTV Loses 2 ABC Affils In Retrans Dispute

Manship’s two ABC affiliates — WBRZ Baton Rouge, La., and KRGV Weslaco, Texas,– went dark on DirecTV last Friday night. “After months of attempting to come to an agreement, DirecTV has failed to realize the importance of local news and entertainment and pulled programming from its lineup,” said Manship in a statement.
