WANE TV Says Bye to Ohio?

It's a possibility, for some Buckeyes, like those in Van Wert. This morning I noticed an announcement on WANE, (Channel 15 for those of you with rabbit ears, or Channel 2 for those of us that have Comcast).

Here's the story from my email today:

LIN May Cut Time Warner Without New Retrans Deal
LIN Corp. may deny Time Warner Cable permission to keep carrying 15 of its TV stations unless they hammer out a new retrans agreement. Otherwise, carriage would end Oct. 2 in 11 markets. The affected markets are: Austin, Texas; Buffalo, N.Y.; Columbus, Ohio; Dayton, Ohio; Ft. Wayne, Ind.; Green Bay, Wis.; Indianapolis; Mobile, Ala.; Springfield, Mass.; Terre Haute, Ind.; and Toledo, Ohio. LIN TV has sought cash payments for multichannel providers and claims to have deals with other major cable, satellite and telecommunications companies.
