Early this morning Tribune Broadcasting and Charter Communications finally reached an agreement on transmissions fees nine days after their previous agreement expired, leading Fox 8 and two dozen other stations to be dropped from Spectrum Cable's broadcast.

“We are pleased to have reached this agreement that will return Tribune Broadcasting’s local television stations and WGN America to Spectrum customers and Tribune’s viewers," the companies said in a joint statement.



The squabble had prevented local viewers from Fox 8's regular programming and last weekend's NFL playoffs.
