New Orleans NBC affiliate WDSU will remain on Cable One’s Coast channel lineup.
“We’re happy to report that (Thursday) afternoon we came to a mutually fair agreement with Hearst Television,” said Trish Neimann, national spokeson for Cable One. “So WDSU will remain in the channel line up for the Mississippi Gulf Coast with no interruption to our customers.”
Cable One had been in negotiations with Hearst Television since late last year, and customers had seen notifications on channels warning that if an agreement were not reached by the original deadline of Dec. 31, WDSU could request that Cable One not carry it.
The Dec. 31 deadline passed but both sides agreed to extend it.
WDSU is popular in the Mississippi Coast market because of its coverage of the New Orleans Saints, news programming and weather.
