At least 60 executives–representing major station groups–have called an “emergency meeting” in Dallas today to discuss the relationships between the FOX affiliates and the network. According to a report in Broadcasting and Cable, the “hastily scheduled” meeting reflects concern among station groups about the renewal of affiliation agreements:

The meeting is “to discuss a variety of challenges, issues and opportunities,” said Jeff Rosser, Fox affiliates board chairman, in an email to group leaders. Rosser noted “new demands being made by Fox, especially at a time when Fox primetime is down significantly.”
