MILWAUKEE (AP) - Journal Broadcast Group has reached a new agreement with Time Warner Cable, ending a nearly two-month blackout of Journal Broadcast stations in Wisconsin and two other states for Time Warner subscribers.

The agreement, announced Friday, covers stations in Milwaukee and Green Bay/Appleton in Wisconsin; Omaha, Neb.; Nashville, Tenn.; and Palm Springs, Calif.

The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports the agreement comes three days before the start of the fall prime-time television season.

The dispute involved fees the cable service pays to carry, or retransmit, a station.

Nashville's WTVF-TV was not affected by the blackout since it was operating under a separate, existing contract.

Milwaukee-based Journal Broadcast owns and operates 35 radio stations and 15 television stations in 12 states. Parent company Journal Communications Inc. publishes the Journal Sentinel.
