Haygood Confident WLKY Will Remain On DirectTV

by Gabe Bullard on December 20, 2010

It’s down to the last two weeks for the contract that keeps WLKY-TV available to DirectTV customers in Louisville.

WLKY’s parent company Hearst is currently in talks with DirectTV over how much the service provider should pay the station to rebroadcast local content. WLKY general manager Glenn Haygood says the procedure is fairly routine, and he’s confident an agreement will be reached soon.

“No one wants any consumer to lose any services or any programming that they know and they like, so it’s in everybody’s best interest to make sure WLKY is still provided to everyone on every delivery platform that’s out there,” he says.

The contract expires at the end of the year. Haygood says agreements between networks and service providers generally last three years, but he can’t reveal details about DirectTV’s agreement.
