America’s Next TV Duopoly: Coming To Vermont


Three years ago, a full-power digital TV station located in the heart of New York’s Adirondack Mountains was the subject of a carriage tussle with Comcast.

Eventually, the MVPD withdrew its petition seeking an exemption from a pending market modification for this station, assigned to the Burlington, Vt.-Plattsburgh, N.Y. DMA.

Now, the station is being sold in a “part two” of sorts tied to a Oct. 17 LPTV deal.

The buyer? It’s the publicly traded giant that purchased the market’s CBS affiliate for $29 million in May 2017.
