CBS Renews Affiliate Agreement With Tegna

CBS and Tegna said they renewed their affiliation agreement with a multi-year deal covering stations in 11 markets.

Programming from Tegna’s CBS affiliates is available to subscribers of CBS All Access, the company’s streaming subscription video-on-demand service.

Financial terms were not disclosed.

“Tegna is a valued and longtime CBS partner,” said Ray Hopkins, president, television networks distribution for CBS. “We are pleased to extend this important relationship between America’s #1 Network and an industry-leading local broadcaster. We look forward to continuing this great relationship delivering premium content to the viewers we both serve.”
