Suddenlink and Hoak Reach Agreement

Suddenlink is pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement in principle on a long-term contract with Hoak Media. As a result, Hoak TV stations — including KALB, KNOE, and KAQY — will continue to be available to Suddenlink customers. We look forward to continuing our partnership with these stations and delivering their programming to our customers.

Suddenlink takes seriously the trust our customers place in us and the responsibility we have to the communities we serve. We also want to thank our customers for their patience and support during these negotiations and assure them that, as a result of the new agreement, there will be no changes to recently announced rate adjustments.

Suddenlink is involved in good-faith negotiations to renew its contract with Hoak Media, which owns several TV stations, including KALB, KAQY, and KNOE. To date, we have completed contracts with other broadcast owners, covering more than 100 local TV stations. As with those others, we are seeking contract terms from Hoak that are fair to our customers, at a price we hope our customers can afford. And if we can’t establish a new contract by Dec. 31, we will ask Hoak for an extension of the current contract, until a new one is in place. An extension would keep these stations available to our customers, which is our number-one goal.
