With Tribunes TV division being sold to Sinclair, perhaps they may look into re-establishing the Chicago conglomerates flagships affiliation with the CW, which went to my50 WPWR in Gary as I posted a while ago. New owners often means new people and new decisions. It would be like with my38 in Boston. However, it would cause a seismic shift in the schedule for both stations. It could take up to a year for Washington to approve and another for operations to be absorbed fully. The local news might appeal more to the Collar Counties west of town after with Sinclair having a reputation similar to FNC (myNetworks sister station). I wanted to start a new post instead of just adding onto the old one. SBC already have CNYcentral near me which includes CW 6. WGN meanwhile remain a separate animal from sister station WGN America which used to have channel 9 outside the Chicago DMA, just as CWs half-sister TBS now have a different agenda to the original channel 17 in Atlanta which remains indie.
