The parent company of WFFF, Local 44, is proud to announce an expansion that will only help us serve you better.
We are now officially Nexstar Media Group following the acquisition of Media General.
We are a family of 171 television stations – bringing access to even more stories that matter to you, across the country and of course, locally here at home.
“Our acquisition of Media General marks a significant milestone in Nexstar’s 20 year history of growth, which has been predicated on our unwavering commitment to deliver exceptional service to the local communities where we operate and value to our shareholders,” says Chairman, President and CEO Perry Sook.
“Our increased scale will allow us to create news bureaus in more state capitals than any other broadcaster, and Nexstar Media Group will produce over 3,500 hours a week of local news for medium and small markets while employing almost 10,000 people. Our teams consistently leverage localism to bring news, entertainment, information, services and value to consumers and advertisers through Nexstar’s television, digital and mobile media platforms, and their dedication is reflected in our strong standings in the local communities where we operate. The focus of our corporate, station-level and digital teams on local leadership, local vision and local targeting is the foundation of our positive near- and long-term financial outlook,” added Sook.
Along with its nationwide holdings, Nexstar now owns stations in Syracuse, Albany, Binghamton, Buffalo, Burlington-Plattsburgh, Elmira, Rochester, Utica, and Watertown.
