Young Broadcasting is one of the worst broadcast groups to deal with (with Sinclair being the other).

Echostar had problems negotiating with Young Broadcasting a few years back. Young also ruined KRON from becoming the NBC O&O station in the San Francisco market.

They basically have ruined the station from being the powerhouse it used to be with last place newscasts and very few good syndicated shows.
It'd be no loss in the San Francisco market for KRON to be shut off.

I see nothing fron Young. Interesting.
I never cared for all the signatures that insult posters with other points of view.
