Cox Communications Inc. of Northern Virginia has been given another one-month
extension to keep carrying ABC affiliate WJLA-TV and NewsChannel 8, officials
said Friday.

Allbritton Communications Co., owner of the TV station and the local news
channel, is permitting the 240,000-subscriber Cox system to carry both outlets
until Nov. 30.

The broadcaster had granted Cox a one-month extension through Oct. 31 so both
sides could continue working toward a retransmission-consent
renewal.
