Cable One, Hearst Television extend deadline to keep WDSU on

Cable One television subscribers on the Mississippi Coast are still able to tune in to New Orleans NBC affiliate WDSU, despite a Dec. 31 contract-negotiation deadline that has passed.

Negotiations between Cable One and Hearst Television are ongoing, said Trish Niemann, national spokeswoman for Cable One.

“We reached an extension with Hearst until this Friday, so we were able to keep WDSU on while we continue to negotiate,” she said.

WDSU is popular among Mississippi Coast residents because if its coverage of New Orleans–area news and weather and of the Saints.

Cable One also carries Mississippi Coast NBC affiliate WXXV in its lineup.
