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.
