Our current agreement expires December 16, 2019 at 5 pm CST. News-Press & Gazette began negotiating with DirecTV/U-Verse in September and we have provided multiple extensions of our current agreement in an effort to come to terms. News-Press & Gazette is seeking market terms for continued carriage on DirecTV and U-Verse’s systems. If we are unable to come to an agreement DirecTV and U-Verse will cease carrying our stations.


We’re family-owned News-Press & Gazette Broadcasting. For over 100 years, our company’s first priority has been to you, our viewers. We value honesty and community, and we promise to stand up for fairness for you…and for us. Too often viewers get caught in the middle of these negotiations and too often you don’t get the truth. You know that’s not how we do business.
