    According to WJW's website they have been unable to reach a new agreement.

    Same kind of thing going on with WREG Channel 3 CBS Memphis, Tennessee. Channel may get pulled from DirecTv Channel Lineup if an agreement is not reached by 9/1/2012.

    WJW and WREG are both owned by Local TV. Could be that all Local TV's stations are in the same boat.

    Local TV's stations from their website:
    http://www.localtvllc.com/ourstations/

    Edited to add: In a spot check of 5 or 6 of their stations' websites, all had a similar announcement.

    I did with one for free back during the dispute with Tribune, when local KTLA 5 (CW outlet) was temporarily pulled.

    Had to go through the Retention Dept. though.

    At least, not if your locale is judged as capable of acceptable OTA reception that is.

    I guess I will join DirecTV just in time to see two Denver Stations go; the FOX and CW affiliate.
