Meredith Corporation (MDP) and Media General (MEG) said they have agreed to terminate immediately the binding merger agreement they entered into on September 8, 2015.

There is no assurance that Media General and Meredith will reach agreement with respect to a purchase of any broadcast and digital assets, any such transaction being subject to approval of Nexstar Broadcasting (NXST) under Media General's merger agreement with Nexstar. Meredith Chairman and CEO Stephen Lacy commented, "While we still believe in the strategic and financial benefits a merger with Media General would have created, we are pleased with the financial benefits of the termination agreement and the shareholder value created." Media General CEO Vincent Saduskey said, "We are pleased to have this matter behind us and look forward to working towards completion of our transaction with Nexstar, which we believe is in the best interest of Media General and delivers superior value to our shareholders."

07:03 EDTNXSTNexstar says Cox subscribers in nine markets may lose programming January 29
Nexstar Broadcasting Group announced that Cox Communications subscribers in nine markets are at risk of losing network and local community programming at 11:59 p.m. local time on January 29, 2016 as Cox has yet to reach a new distribution agreement allowing the cable television provider the right to continue to air Nexstar's highly rated programming. For over five months, Nexstar has been negotiating in good faith to establish a mutually agreeable contract with Cox. Nexstar has established a long-term record of completing hundreds of agreements with cable and satellite providers for the carriage of its programming and is proud it has had no material service interruptions related to distribution agreements since 2005. Nexstar will continue negotiating with Cox to try and reach a fair agreement to allow viewers to continue receiving its programming on an uninterrupted basis. Nexstar is committed to consistently elevating the level of service provided to local communities in the markets it serves across the United States by making meaningful capital investments to expand local news, lifestyle, sports, weather and other programming and enhancing station infrastructure, production resources and technologies. Nexstar regrets that Cox Communications is willing to hold its paying subscribers hostage because it won't agree to fair and reasonable terms for viewers' favorite network, local news and community-focused programming, as well as other critical information and emergency service updates we provide that is relevant to local community viewers. Nexstar remains hopeful that a resolution can be reached before the January 29 deadline, but should Cox fail to come to terms with Nexstar, Nexstar intends to actively educate consumers in affected markets on how they can continue to receive their favorite network programming, in-depth local news, other content and programming relevant to their communities, and critical updates in times of emergencies.
