Schurz Communications and DISH Network are negotiating a new retransmission-consent pact for stations in six markets, and they face a deadline of midnight Thursday. The outlets are in Anchorage, Alaska; Springfield, Mo.; Roanoke, Va.; South Bend, Ind.; Augusta, Ga.; and Wichita, Kan. "We do not believe customers should be disrupted by these discussions and continue to work hard to try and get [DISH] to reach an agreement as quickly as possible," according to a statement from Schurz.
