    According to The Morning Bridge:
    Some of you from the area may have seen the Tulsa World story headlined Fee fight could kill Dish's access to CBS, CW in Oklahoma.

    I've seen the crawl notice on KWTV. Hope it works out for the DISH folks as it did with KOCO/Hearst and DirecTV last month.

    Most Tulsa folks should be able to pick up CBS OTA.

    I use to live in the Joplin,MO/Pittsburg,KS DMA. I know they don't have a local CW but don't they get CW from New York still? I don't see very many local things on the CW anyways (Just the news at 9PM). Where I moved to is a county that boarders the Joplin,MO/Pittsburg,KS DMA. In fact some local cable companies have locals from there and Tulsa. I wish there was some way viewers could pick the set of locals they want in case something like this happens. I think if locals knew you could bolt for a neigboring local station that provides the same programming they would not be so greedy!!!!

    I agree! They just have two shows per night don't they. They should have kept The WB.

    KWTV/Griffin Communications now has a crawl going that they and DISH have come to an agreement.
