I give up you win Fox. Tribune will buy Fox Televison Stations’ Fox 26 and My20 in Houston and Fox 7 in Austin exchange for Tribune’s KCPQ and KZJO Part of swap agreements. Trubune Put Channel 39 For Sale. Make KCPQ, KZJO and Seahwks NFC Rights. You Win FOX!

    I heard Fox is looking to get rid of WPWR My50 in Chicago (but not WFLD Fox 32), possibly swapping to Tribune for KCPQ/KZJO.

    To me, I would prefer that FOX could attempt to purchase KCPQ and KZJO in Seattle and also WHPL in Philadelphia from Tribune for FOX to form a duopoly between WFTX and WPHL in Philadelphia without being forced to sell off or trade and swap a station to Tribune for KCPQ and KZJO. FOX stations in Tampa and Orlando would be more prime to go to Tribune due to weak performing NFL teams in Miami, Tampa, and Jacksonville.

    What does an NFL team’s performance have to do with whether or not Fox wanting to own a station there? And Fox doesn’t own a station in Miami or in Jacksonville.

    As noted yesterday, if WTVT/Tampa was available, it would have gone to Cox. You are clearly clueless JC!

    T Dog, if FOX owns a station in a market with a good performing NFC team (NFC games are on FOX, AFC are on CBS), then they will air a majority of the home market’s team games and therefore make a lot of money from that. WFLD is a pretty lousy station in terms of local news ratings, but they are pretty valuable in the sense that they air a majority of the Bears games.

    JC, No way in Hell would FOX ever get rid of their Stations in Orlando and Tampa! Not after all the hoops they had to go through with the FCC to purchase them from New World (Tampa) and Meredith (Orlando) in the first place! The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are in the NFC (which FOX covers) and will have a much better season this year.

    T Dog, the reason that the FOX stations in Jacksonville and Miami are affiliates IS that both the Jacksonville Jacquars and the Miami Dolphins are in the AFC (which CBS covers). FOX has no interest in owning stations in markets where the NFL team is in the American Conference!!!
