The first television station bought by Nexstar was WYOU-TV in Scranton, PA. Nexstar bought WYOU from locally owned Diversified Communications. Nexstar promptly fired two beloved anchors and laid-off several long-term staff-members. Perry Sook promised that WYOU would Nexstars flagship station and he kept an office right off the newsroom for many years. In one memorable moment in Sooks time there, the unedited version of the Robert Mitchum movie "The Big Sleep" aired on a Sunday afternoon. The production staff was amused to see Sook running down the hallway from his office to the Master Control suite when full frontal nudity appeared on screen during the movie.
