The headline's misleading.
Earlier this year, Nexstar Broadcasting pulled its programming off Cox's system in San Angelo, Texas, the same way that it took the signals of KSNF and KODE off Cable One in Joplin, Vinita, and Independence. The company demanded that the cable systems take Nexstar and Mission programming off after they refused to pay for the signals.
In San Angelo, though, Cox and Nexstar reached an agreement to put the Nexstar station back on Cox...for one day in early June...to allow the Children's Miracle Network Telethon to reach as many people as possible.
I wonder, though, if people had finally become accustomed to not having the Nexstar station on the cable network, who would be looking for the telethon there?
