announced that it is supporting the TVB position on local Live Plus Same Day

viewing. Dave Lougee, President, Gannett Broadcasting, said, "As consumers
engage in more and more time-shifted viewing, we believe it is essential that
our industry has the most reliable and accurate local viewing data. Live Plus
