Scripps Stations Snuffed By Dish In Latest Retrans Impasse


BOCA RATON, FLA. — Relive. Respond. Revive. That’s the tag line associated with “The Rebound,” the local business-focused promotional effort developed by The E.W. Scripps Co. as a community builder for its 60 broadcast TV stations across 42 markets.

As of Sunday (7/26), that rebound and the ability for consumers and local businesses to continue to recover from COVID-19 impacted business dips suffered a bit of a setback.

You could blame Dish. Or, you could point fingers at Scripps. No matter whose at fault, the latest retransmission fee impasse has arrived. And, it blocks local TV stations in markets ranging from New York to San Luis Obispo, Calif., from reaching Dish consumers.
