Bonten Stations to Air Series on Gun Violence

Bonten Media stations have scheduled a week-long series of special reports on gun violence that will air across all its stations beginning February 18.

“The Facts: Guns in America” will be presented in five reports, each produced by a reporter at a different Bonten station. The reports range in topic from an examination of the second amendment to a spotlight on gun violence and mental health.

“There is no topic that generates more heat and less light than guns,” Bonten Media CEO Randall Bongarten said in a statement. “We believe it is our responsibility to provide factual information so that our viewers can make their own judgments on critical issues like gun control.”

Reports will be presented by Wayne McCormick of KTXS in Abliene, Texas; Wes Goforth of WCTI in Greenville, N.C.; Steve Fetveit of KECI-KTVM in Missoula, Mont.; Kelli Saam of KRCR in Chico, Calif.; and Julie Newman of WCYB in Bristol, Va. See a full list of their topics after the jump. Read more

Bonten Media, Time Warner Face Sunday Deadline In Carriage Dispute

The January 1 deadline is getting closer for Time Warner Cable and Bonten Media to negotiate a carriage agreement in Greenville, NC.

Several stations in the market are at risk: ABC-affiliate WCTI and Fox-affiliates WFXI-WYDO. Bonten owns WCTI and operates WFXI-WYDO under a joint service agreement.

“We are continuing to negotiate, and working hard to resolve this issue in a fair and timely manner,” Bonten CEO Randall Bongarten said in a statement today.

Verizon FiOs and Media General are also facing a January 1 deadline in retransmission negotiations.
