COLUMBIA — Negotiations between KOMU/Channel 8 and cable provider Mediacom will continue through Monday, according to a news release from Mediacom.

Their current agreement was supposed to end at midnight Friday unless a new deal could be reached over how much KOMU, the NBC affiliate for mid-Missouri, is paid in compensation for programming.

Programming will not change this weekend. If negotiations fail, Mediacom will drop KOMU programming but will still have some NBC shows available in its on-demand service.
