Nexstar dropping Scripps-owned The CW affiliates in 7 markets

Nexstar stations will add The CW in Norfolk, Va., and Lafayette, La.


Nexstar Media Group said it does not intend to renew the affiliations of The CW stations owned by the E.W. Scripps Co. in seven markets.

In two of those markets — Norfolk, Virginia, and Lafayette, Louisiana — Nexstar-owned stations will become the new The CW affiliates, effective Sept. 1.

“We have interest from other station groups in the five remaining markets and expect to make announcements about those affiliations soon,” Nexstar said in a statement. “We are prepared for this transition and confident that The CW will continue to reach 100% of U.S. television households without interruption.”  

The other five markets are Detroit; Miami; Tucson, Arizona; Corpus Christi, Texas; and San Luis Obispo, California.
