This Sam Zell video posted on Trib-owned Baltimore Sun’s website (click on “Sam 5” to see video) may hint at a possible affiliation switch for KSWB, going from CW to Fox (why are they still called KSWB to begin with?) So what happens to current Fox affiliate XETV based in nearby Tijuana, Mexico? It could be deja vu all over again (the FCC forced ABC to disaffiliate with XETV in 1972 because of its Mexican location.)
And what about Tribune’s allegiance to the CW? Can they find the green network another home (by perhaps buying KUSI-TV?) Will this happen? Or is this rumor? Stay Tuned.
