Lammers: Negotiations between Nexstar, Cable One unlikely

Nexstar COO Duane Lammers told the Texarkana Gazette he does not anticipate reaching any agreement with Cable One. Nexstar programming has been pulled off Cable One in that area, as well as in Joplin where KSNF and KODE have been off cable since Dec. 31, 2004.
Lammers told the newspaper if Cable One makes an offer, "We would consider it, but I don't think one is forthcoming."
The Nexstar officials also talked about the recently reached agreement with Cox Communications, which will keep KODE and KSNF on cable franchises in Carthage and Lamar. He said Cox was "able to satisfy our need to realize some financial consideration." Of course, citing the confidentiality agreement, he declined to say just what that consideration was.

Why is something running on my screen saying, "If I want to watch KSN on dishnetwork, to call Dishnetwork?"

In 2003 Nexstar stock was selling for almost $15 a share. In 2004 they had dropped 50%. Now in 2005 their stock is down even more and is pushing the $4 mark. I guess you can win the battles and lose the war and everything is fine. Just ask Uncle Sam how he did it in the 60's & 70's. As we all know, the only real loser in any war is the people. Thank You
