Dish Network blackout of WAGT avoided

Dish Network has reached an agreement with Schurz Communications on the continued transmission of Schurz stations, including Augusta’s WAGT, officials announced Friday.

Earlier this week, Dish said it would drop six of the Indiana-based company’s stations unless an agreement was reached.

“We’re pleased to announce that we have reached a fair, market-based deal with Schurz,” said Dave Shull, Dish’s senior vice president of programming.

Terms were not disclosed. The agreement also affects stations in Springfield, Mo.; Roanoke, Va.; Wichita, Kan.; South Bend, Ind.; and Anchorage, Alaska.
