Cox Communications will file a complaint to the FCC against Nexstar Broadcasting Wednesday, according to Multichannel News.
Cox, which operates cable franchises in Carthage and Lamar, claims Nexstar has not been negotiating in good faith and has refused to even meet with Cox officials. Cox is scheduled to lose Nexstar's stations, KSNF and KODE, on Jan. 30. "Hopefully, the FCC will succeed where we've failed," Cox spokesman David Grabert told Multichannel News.
Nexstar COO Duane Lammers indicated he was not concerned and that Cox is the company that has not negotiated in good faith.
As mentioned earlier in The Turner Report, Lammers will be featured in an interview in the Wednesday edition of TV Business Review.
