A local television station will be losing its major network affiliation at the end of the year.

Linwood-based WMGM-TV, known locally as NBC 40, will be losing its affiliation with the NBC Network by the end of this year, leaving the station’s future up in the air.  WMGM-TV has been a NBC affiliate for nearly half a century.

In a letter to the FCC, published in part by Broadcasting and Cable magazine, former NBC 40 general manager Ron Smith says,

“The decision not to renew WMGM’s affiliation agreement is anticompetitive and raises serious questions about Comcast’s proposed acquisition of Time Warner Cable and their concern for localism, the Comcast cable customers in Southern New Jersey and the Comcast customers everywhere.”

 

South Jersey TV viewers who wish to watch NBC shows will need to make the switch to WCAU-TV from Philadelphia.  Both WCAU-TV and the NBC Network are owned by Comcast.
