Nexstar CEO to Mayor Roefaro: Remove Time Warner Cable | NBC-WKTV News Channel 2 - Utica News, Weather, Sports - | Local News
"In fact, CEO of Nexstar Broadcasting Perry Sook, has sent a cease-and-desist letter to Time Warner Cable, according to a national industry website. In an official comment on the website's article, Sook goes on to say that the City of Utica should formally revoke Time Warner Cable's carriage rights in the area."

This is an interesting fight, taking place between a broadcaster and Time Warner Cable.

For those needing background, WKTV-2 and WVNY-22/WFFF-44 were pulled off of Time Warner cable in the Utica and Burlington markets, respectively. In response, Time Warner put Nexstar's WBRE Scranton on the Utica system and Nexstar's WUTR Utica on the Burlington system. (They also put WNYF-CD Watertown up in Burlington.) As a result, Nexstar sent the cease and desist since they don't have rights for those markets.

That's what this article is about.
