December 22, 2005|by ERIN CUNNINGHAM

Nexstar Broadcasting Group Inc., which owns NBC25, said Wednesday it has reached retransmission consent agreements with Comcast and Atlantic Broadband Cable.

The agreements mean NBC25 will continue to be carried on cable systems serving southcentral Pennsylvania, Allegany County, Md., and Morgan County, W.Va., according to a written release from Nexstar.

"We are pleased to continue our mutually beneficial relationship with these cable systems, which will allow our loyal viewers in these areas to continue to enjoy unique, quality local television service," said Hugh J. Breslin II, vice president and general manager of NBC25.

Nexstar has yet to reach an agreement with Antietam Cable or Adelphia Communications Inc. NBC25 is set to be dropped from the two companies' cable packages in 2006 if an agreement cannot be reached, according to published reports.
