It was just eight months ago that Nexstar Broadcasting stock was heading toward the roof, reaching a high of $14.98 per share.
Times have certainly changed for the company, which owns KSNF in Joplin and KSFX in Springfield and is the de facto owner of KODE in Joplin and KOLR in Springfield. At the end of trading Tuesday, Nexstar stock was down 38 cents to $8.07 per share.
Meanwhile, things are going no better for Saga Communications, owners of KOAM and KFJX in the Joplin/Pittsburg area. Saga stock was down 29 cents per share Tuesday to close at $6.10.
