06:20 EDTLIN, CBS, MEGCBS seeking bigger share of pay-television revenue from affiliates, WSJ reports
CBS last week stripped an Indianapolis station of its affiliation due to a fee disagreement as it seeks a bigger share of pay-television revenue, reports the Wall Street Journal. The Indianapolis station's owner LIN Media (LIN) was set to be acquired by Media General (MEG) for $1.6B this year, but Media General cut its acquisition price Wednesday by 7%, or more than $100M, with the move from CBS cited as one of the reasons. According to Gabelli & Co., the lack of a CBS affiliation may cost the statio tens of millions of dollars in annual revenue to decline. Reference Link
