Media General is filing a second emergency-enforcement
complaint with the Federal Communications Commission against Time Warner Cable,
according to an executive with the broadcast-station owner, this one over the
cable operator's deletion of WNCT in Greenville,
N.C.

That follows the complaint Media General filed against the MSO
for dropping its WBTW in Florence, S.C.,
from some systems.

In both cases, the drops came in systems where the stations
were out-of-market and in systems that already carried an in-market CBS
affiliate.

Media General says the operator did not provide the
requisite 30 days notice before dropping the stations. TWC claims that it did.
