Mediacom Communications said it has reached a retransmission consent agreement with Paxton Media for the broadcaster’s NBC-affiliate television station serving the Paducah, Kentucky market, ending a seven-month blackout.

Details of the January 1 agreement were not disclosed. 

The station -- WPSD-TV -- also serves Marion-Harrisburg, Illinois and Cape Girardeau, Missouri. Paxton first pulled the station's signal on May 31.

The Paxton Media deal was one of the few carriage agreements that were reached as the year drew to a close, although one of the biggest retrans disputes of 2021 -- Tegna's ongoing battle with Dish Network -- shows no current signs that a resolution is near. Tegna stations in about 53 markets went dark to Dish subscribers on Oct 6. ■
