West Virginia Media and DISH Network Have Reached an Agreement
West Virginia Media and DISH Network have reached a contract agreement to bring WV Media stations in West Virginia back to customers, officials confirmed Wednesday.
Area customers have been without access to WBOY-TV, the local NBC affiliate, and WBOYD, the local ABC affiliate for about two weeks.
A WV Media official said there was an agreement reached between DISH Network and West Virginia Media, but she wasn’t involved in conversations about the contract.
There has not been any response from Bray Cary, CEO and president of West Virginia Media.
Marc Lumpkin, a spokesman for DISH Network, sent a press on Wednesday that said West Virginia Media and the network reached a multi-year agreement.
“DISH is pleased that the owner of West Virginia Holdings personally reached out directly to DISH to make this deal happen in the best interest of viewers in those markets,“ Andrew LeCuyer, DISH vice president of programming, said in the release.
The release also said the terms of the negotiation weren’t disclosed.
