There’ll be no “great affiliate swaps” in any markets where TEGNA owns television stations airing programming from the CBS Television Network.


CBS Corp. and the Tysons, Va.-based media company formerly known as Gannett on Thursday (6/6) reached “a comprehensive, multi-year deal” that renews station affiliation agreements for 11 TEGNA markets.

The stations are:

  • WLTX-19 in Columbia, S.C.
  • WFMY-2 in Greensboro, N.C.
  • KHOU-11 in Houston
  • KTHV-11 in Little Rock
  • WMAZ-13 in Macon, Ga.
  • WWL-4 in New Orleans
  • KENS-5 in San Antonio
  • KREM-2 in Spokane, Wash.
  • WTSP-10 in Tampa, Fla.
  • KYTX-19 in Tyler, Tex.
  • WUSA-9 in Washington, D.C.

The deal allows the TEGNA CBS affiliates to be made locally available to subscribers of CBS All Access, the Network’s subscription video on demand streaming platform.

“CBS and TEGNA have a valuable partnership that serves communities across the country with a powerful combination of premium national and local content” said Dave Lougee, President/CEO of TEGNA. “This multi-year agreement enables our stations to continue providing consumers and advertisers with must-have local and network content on multiple platforms.”

Ray Hopkins, President of Television Networks Distribution at CBS Corp., added, “We are pleased to extend this important relationship between [CBS] and an industry-leading local broadcaster. We look forward to continuing this great relationship delivering premium content to the viewers we both serve.”
