NEW YORK (AP) - For more than 60 years, TV stations have broadcast news, sports and entertainment for free and made their money by showing commercials. That might not work much longer.

The business model is unraveling at ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox and the local stations that carry the networks' programming.

The recession has squeezed advertising further, forcing broadcasters to accelerate their push for new revenue to pay for programming.

“When the seas are roughest, a conservative appraisal is our anchor against fear.”

That’s one line from a letter sent to shareholders last month by the Memphis-based managers of the Longleaf Partners family of mutual funds.
