       Re:     TEGNA Inc.
               Definitive Additional Materials on Schedule 14A
               Filed April 14, 2020 by Standard General L.P., et al.
               Response Dated April 14, 2020
               File No. 001-06961

Dear Mr. de Wied:

       We have reviewed the above-captioned filings and have the following

Response Dated April 14, 2020

1. We note your response to comment 5 in our letter dated April 14, 2020.
Please confirm that
   in future filings you will disclose the basis or source for any assertions
about TEGNA's
   engagement with potential suitors. To the extent these articles rely on
unnamed sources as
   the basis for the information you include in your filings, so state.
Additionally, confirm that
   you will remove statements about TEGNA's board requiring an "all cash
offer," as we are
   unable to locate support for such statements.

DFAN14A filed April 14, 2020

2. Please provide the factual basis for your statement that TEGNA has "spent
more than $12
   million" and specify what you are asserting the $12 million has been spent
on (e.g., advising
   on the proxy contest or other matters).

3. With a view toward providing context to shareholders, please revise your
   regarding the strategic suitors that expressed interest in buying the
Company "at nearly twice
   the current price" to clarify that the Company's current price may reflect
market trends and
   economic conditions that did not exist at the time these suitors expressed
