Sinclair is buying Tribune which will give Sinclair ownership of three STL stations -- KTVI, KPLR, KDNL. I'm assuming one is going to have to be divested... any speculation on how this will play out?

Interesting news. But it's amazing how the Post-Dispatch link takes the reader down a rat hole of anti-trump political commentary. Especially when you click on the link within the link. I don't recall every past business merger linked to the evil, at-the-time administration. I am more interested in learning more about the ramifications of any one owner managing THREE major, high-power TV stations in my market.

Also, Sinclair has a shown ZERO interest in any local news broadcasting. Nada. I hope that doesn't spell trouble for Channels 2 & 11 which seem to go out of their way producing local news & weather content.

The last couple of days channel 16.1 Retro TV is only showing a black screen. My Tivo is showing a signal, just no picture like nothing is being broadcast. Anyone else getting the same thing?

Their RF signal is fine, it's just not carrying anything. Something in the content signal chain has probably failed.

This letter says the sale of WRBU to Brian Brady has been canceled. Why?

I can't pick up 16-1 anyway. My channel scans show it there (along with some channel 8's and 25's), but when I try to actually watch all I get is no signal.

One of these days I need to put my antenna back in the right direction. Many years ago (Star Trek Enterprise was still on UPN at the time), a huge windstorm spun it about 30 degrees off. I still got all the channels I cared about so I never did anything about it.

Oh, and for anyone missing GetTV (formerly 30-2), it's now on 33-3. My HDhomerun channel guide also shows it on 33-2, but that's a mistake. 33-2 is still a shopping channel.
