Colts Games Moving To New TV Station Due To CBS-Tribune Deal

Colts game broadcasts in Indianapolis will move stations from WISH to WTTV as a result of an affiliation agreement announced today between CBS Corp. and Tribune Co. Per the deal, the CBS affil in Indianapolis moves from LIN Media's WISH to Tribune-owned WTTV, bringing with it NFL and other sports rights belonging to CBS (Tribune Co.). Tribune was "eager to land CBS' NFL package," and CBS' "shuffle in Indianapolis sends a clear message to other affiliate stations that the network is willing to move if station owners don't want to pay the Eye's price" (VARIETY.com, 8/11).
