The group owner taps Richard Graziano, a veteran broadcast and digital executive, to run its Connecticut ABC-MNT duopoly of WTNH-WCTX .
Subscribers of Cox Communications’ three cable systems in Connecticut could find themselves unable to watch ABC affiliate WTNH Hartford and its sister station, WCTX, on March 14 if a new retransmission agreement isn’t reached. The two stations are owned by LIN Media and have already begun running announcements about their possible removal from the Cox lineup.
Cox Communications and LIN TV Corp. signed a retransmission consent agreement late Wednesday to keep LIN’s Hartford-New Haven, Conn., duopoly of WTNH (ABC) and WCTX (MNT) on Cox’s cable system. The previous deal was set to expire at midnight.
