Fisher takes Dish dispute to radio


Fisher Communications has still not resolved its retransmission consent dispute with Dish Network, which has had its TV stations off Dish’s local-to-local service since December. Now Fisher is running radio ads in Seattle blaming the impasse on Dish CEO Charlie Ergen.
