KXJB, DirecTV still haven't reached agreement to keep local CBS affiliate on the air
Local CBS affiliate KXJB will be removed from DirecTV lineups Thursday if a new deal to retransmit the station's signal on the satel-lite cable system can't be reached.
A spokesman for the satel-lite cable company, Robert Mercer, said in an e-mail today at 7:58 p.m. that the station's signal will come off DirecTV's lineup starting at 6 p.m. Thursday. A message on KXJB's Web site from the station's general manager, Charley Johnson, says the feed will be removed at 5 p.m.
