LITTLETON, COLO. - EchoStar Communications Corp.
said last Thursday it was forced to pull the feeds of two local-to-local stations when retransmission consent talks broke down with the stations' parent, Young Broadcasting Inc. NBC affiliate KRON-TV in San Francisco and ABC affiliate WKRN-TV in Nashville, Tenn., were removed from Dish Network's lineup at midnight. An EchoStar spokesman said retransmission contract extensions granted by Young had expired.
