CBS Sues WLNE Over Non-Payment

CBS Distribution has sued WLNE for $5 million over non-payment for syndicated television shows "Dr. Phil," "Entertainment Tonight," "Inside Edition," and "Rachael Ray."

As first reported here, the station - the local ABC affiliate - stopped airing the shows last week after failing to come to terms on retaining the programming amid dreadful financial conditions for local TV. WPRI has picked up the shows.

ABC6 general manager Steve Doerr could not be immediately reached for comment.
