LIN reaches retrans agreement


KASA-TV (Ch. 2, Fox) Albuquerque was never pulled from Cable One systems, as threatened last month (1/14/07 TVBR #243), due to a last-minute interim agreement. Now LIN has come to terms with the cable MSO on a retransmission agreement to carry the station in both analog and HD.

Of course, LIN did not disclose the terms of the hard-fought retrans agreement, but CEO Vincent Sadusky is a satisfied guy.

“We are pleased with the outcome of our negotiations. Our stations are leaders in their markets and we’ve made substantial investments to bring our viewers high definition digital programming. The agreement reflects fair value to both parties and is in the best interest of the consumer,” said Sadusky in a statement.
