Not Really In Market, Or Even Ohio.

But we have an interesting piece of news about the new NBC Primetime Show with Jay Leno. (No that's not the official name of it.)

Seems NBC affiliate WHDH in Boston, Mass. has decided preliminarily that it won't air the show, saying they believe it to be detrimental as a lead-in to the late news there.

There's a really distant connection to Cincinnati here. WHDH is owned by Sunbeam Television. Sunbeam also owns another station in Boston, WLVI-TV, the CW affiliate there. WLVI used to be owned by Tribune...where Randy Michaels is in management. Of course, Michaels formerly headed Jacor which owned Local12 WKRC-TV.

See? Told ya it was a distant had to know we'd find one.

Anyway, it'll be interesting to see how it plays out...and if any other affiliates decide to pull the plug like WHDH...
