During the same time in which the company is trying to pay down more than half a billion dollars worth of debts, Nexstar Broadcasting paid Perry Sook one of the biggest bonuses given to any CEO in the country.
A Jan. 13 Associated Press article reported that Nexstar is making efforts to pay off $600 million worth of debt. During the past year, the man whose responsibility is to get that debt under control, Sook, was paid a bonus of $4,325,000, according to Securities and Exchange Commission documents.
Nexstar is the owner of KSNF and de facto owner of KODE-TV in Joplin.
Earlier, I wrote that the Neosho Daily News had not written about the lawsuit filed by the relatives of James Dodson and Jessica Mann against Edward Meerwald, Noel, the man who allegedly was drunk when the car he was driving crashed into them and killed them last July.
The Daily has written about that. I apologize for the error and have removed that reference from the blog.
