APOLLO COX STICKS WITH FOX

Four Cox Media Group properties airing FOX Network programming will be staying in FOXWorld.

A multi-year agreement has been reached between Apollo Global Management’s reborn Cox Media Group and Fox Corporation.

The deal keeps FOX affiliations in place at WFXT in Boston (which puts to rest some random rumors regarding Sunbeam’s WHDH being in the running for affiliation); WHBQ in Memphis; WFOX in Jacksonville; and at KOKI in Tulsa.

The deal also covers continued carriage of the four stations’ local programming on all major streaming platforms.

Happiness abounds.

“Cox Media Group has enjoyed our partnership with FOX for many years and we are pleased to have secured a long-term deal to preserve this important relationship in our legacy Cox Media Group markets,” Cox boss Kim Guthrie said.
