ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Hundreds of WALB-TV viewers will keep WALB on their cable lineup with an agreement reached between the Doerun cable company and Raycom Media.  

This station's parent company, Raycom Media, had reached agreements with cable companies in our viewing area, but as of Monday, Doerun Cable TV company had not yet come to terms with Raycom to keep WALB-TV on their channel lineup in 2009.  

On Tuesday morning, Doerun Cable TV signed a new contract, ensuring continued presence of WALB-TV on that cable system.
