SPECTRUM AUCTION: WHO'S (MAYBE) IN, WHO'S OUT:
Filing to potentially participate in the upcoming TV spectrum auction closed last week, and while the filings are confidential, some organizations have revealed their plans. Stations that sell spectrum will be able to remain on the air either by moving to an inferior channel or through channel sharing.

Groups that own dozens of stations on the list of stations to be potentially sold have said they may participate in some form. Those groups include:
•Gray TV, 18 stations in the Upper Midwest (Bloomberg)
•Sinclair, 12 stations in the region (TV Technology, Variety)
•Nexstar, 7 stations in the region (TV Technology)
•Media General, 5 stations in the region (TV Technology, Variety)
•Ion, 5 stations in the region (TVNewsCheck)
•Tribune, 3 stations in the region (TVNewsCheck)
•CBS, owns WCCO-TV Minneapolis & 2 satellites (Bloomberg, Variety, WSJ)
•FOX, owns KMSP & WFTC Minneapolis (Bloomberg, TVNewsCheck, WSJ)
•Marquette PBS station WNMU (Mining Journal)

Groups that will not participate include:
•Wisconsin Public Television, which operates six PBS stations
•NET Nebraska, which operates nine PBS stations
•Pioneer Public Television, which operates two PBS stations in southwestern Minnesota (though its statement only mentions one of them) (1/18/2016)
