    Is Cox about to unload its underperforming FOX affiliate? If so, would Fox or Sunbeam be in the driver’s seat?

    What about Sinclair?

    I think they’d want to be in Boston, and despite owning WJAR-10 in nearby Providence, they might be able to acquire WFXT-25.

    While I do think Sinclair would be interested in WFXT, I suspect that if it is sold, Fox would likely re-acquire it.

    There are so many (separate) rumors right now about Cox and Fox that almost anything could theoretically happen.  That said, one thing to keep in mind is that even without its current deal to sell off the American-Statesman (to GateHouse), Cox might now be able to pick up KTBC from Fox.

    KTBC

    The understanding is that Cox is looking to exit markets where it does not already have a TV/Radio/Newspaper combo.

    Could Ansin buy WFXT just to grab Fox for WHDH and re sell WFXT?

    KTBC still has value as an O&O in the Texas capital, and Austin is a de facto secondary home market for the Cowboys.

    Recorded in Ultra Stereo, the ultimately superior cousin to Normal Stereo!
