COMCAST DROPS WDTN FROM RICHMOND LINEUP; OTHER REDUCTIONS POSSIBLE

(Richmond, IN)--Richmond subscribers to Comcast recently lost another local network television affiliate, and a Comcast spokesman this week said it’s impossible to predict if more stations will be dropped.  Comcast dropped WDTN, Dayton’s NBC affiliate on Channel 2.  Richmond once had eight television stations from Dayton and Cincinnati (excluding PBS), which are geographically the closest two markets.  Now, it’s down to just three.  The reason is that Richmond is now determined by Nielsen to be a part of the market of a large central Indiana city, despite the fact that that city is twice as far away.  Dayton and Cincinnati TV stations are now considered out-of-market.  Comcast said it was contractually required by Nextar Media to stop providing programming from WDTN.
