KSAS Sues KWCH Over News Production

Fox affiliate KSAS Wichita owner Newport Television filed suit Thursday in District Court against  Sunflower Broadcasting, parent of CBS affil KWCH, alleging that KWCH has stopped producing KSAS’ 9 p.m. newscast live, as required by contract. Instead, the suit says, KWCH is recording the KSAS newscast in advance and producing a live 9 p.m. newscast for KWCH’s sister station, CW affiliate KSCW.
