I wonder who would acquire Antenna TV if Tribune is sold off in pieces. I can't see Weigel Broadcasting acquiring it, as they already have MeTV. Say it did happen, Antenna TV would be eliminated, & the Sony library would be in Weigel's hands (they don't have national access to the Sony library, like they do for just Chicago).
Last time I checked, Sony has a cozy relationship with CBS. Given this, I personally don't see a problem
The other option would be if Weigel acquired Antenna TV is to turn it into a national MeToo, & make MeTV comedy only & MeToo drama only (like they did when MeTV was just in Chicago). I really don't see that happening though.
Neither do I as current MeTV affiliates wouldn't want to devote an extra subchannel to it
Besides, if Antenna TV were eliminated by merging with MeTV, Weigel & MGM would have to deal with the affiliations as to who would keep MeTV outside of Chicago, Milwaukee, & South Bend, IN.
I just hope Tribune stays together somehow.
I just don't see how.
Speaking of WGN, let's not forget there's also WGN-AM 720. I know this isn't the radio board but since the radio station is tied to the TV station, who (Outside of maybe CBS Radio) would be interested in buying it?
