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 the sale is complete 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 remains 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.
