Scripps Co. Buying Diginets

- Posted August 3rd, 2017 at 4:37pm
E.W. Scripps Co. (owner of WTVF NewsChannel 5) has bought four diginets - Bounce, Escape, Grit, and Laff. What this will mean for the networks here in the Nashville market. I don't know. IMO, they(WTVF) will probably add Grit back to the Nashville airwaves after being "shoved off" of WNAB by Sinclair. As for the other networks, who knows. I am posting a link to the article below.

Just read about this. It is indeed good news. Bounce is only on cable, but since it appeals to "urban" audiences, it may be slow to appear OTA. Meanwhile, TBD churns on...

Actually, Bounce already broadcasts over the air on low power WLLC channel 42.
