From the Des Moines Register: The signals of WOI-TV in central Iowa and three other Midwest television stations owned by Citadel Communications Co. were scheduled to disappear from the Dish Network lineup at midnight. Ray Cole, president of Citadel Communications, said negotiations over a new "carriage agreement" between Citadel and Dish Network broke down over the amount of money Dish Network would pay Citadel for carrying broadcasts of WOI-TV in Des Moines, KCAU-TV in Sioux City, KLKN-TV in Lincoln, Neb., and WHBF-TV in the Quad Cities. WHBF is a CBS affiliate. The other stations are ABC affiliates. "We find it unfortunate for our viewers and their subscribers," said Cole. Citadel made a proposal for a new carriage agreement more than two months ago, Cole said. "Our proposal went 60 days without a response," he said. "It's only been in the past 10 days that we've been in any serious negotiations." Francie Bauer, spokesman for Dish Network Corp. in Englewood, Colo., said the company doesn't comment on its negotiations. "It's not us pulling their signal, it's them pulling their signal so we can't retransmit that signal," Bauer said. Cole declined to say what each side was offering in the negotiations, citing "a strict confidentiality agreement." "We made a fair and reasonable offer," he said. "The ball is in their court."
