TEGNA, Verizon end retrans dispute with multiyear deal

TEGNA Inc. stations became available to Verizon Communications Inc. customers after the companies reached a multiyear retransmission consent agreement.

Three TEGNA stations WUSA, the CBS (US) affiliate in Washington, D.C.; WVEC, the ABC (US) affiliate in Norfolk, Va.; and WGRZ, the NBC (US) affiliate in Buffalo, N.Y., went dark for Verizon's Fios customers after the two parties failed to reach a renewal by 5 p.m. on Dec. 31, 2018.

Verizon has been engaged in a couple of carriage situations over the past week. The telco reached a broad distribution renewal with Walt Disney Co. on Dec. 30, 2018, the day before the parties' contract was set to expire.

Verizon Fios also removed multicultural music network FUSE (US) from its lineup, effective Jan.1, citing costs relative to viewership levels.
