       Re:     TEGNA Inc.
               Definitive Additional Materials on Schedule 14A
               Filed March 31 and April 7, 2020 by Standard General L.P., et
               File No. 001-06961

Dear Mr. de Wied:

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

DFAN14A Filed March 31, 2020

1. We note the statement in your March 31 press release and shareholder letter
that Mr. Lougee
   has been CEO for almost four years. Please revise to provide disclosure of
the correct
   duration of Mr. Lougee's tenure as CEO, which appears to be less than three
   Additionally, provide support for the assertion that "he has been
responsible for the
   performance of TEGNA's assets for the last 13 years." In this respect, we
note that until the
   spin-off of Cars.com, Mr. Lougee was President of a distinct business unit
in the Company
   and not a board member.

DFAN14A Filed April 7, 2020

2. We note your assertion in the press release that, with respect to the merger
of Media General
   with LIN Media LLC and a subsequent sale to Nexstar Media Group, "[h]olders
   continue to own the stock today have earned a 280% return over 6.6 years."
It is our
   understanding that since the sale to Nexstar, Nexstar's management and board
has operated
   the surviving business. Accordingly, please revise this statement to remove
the implication
   that Media General's post-merger performance should be attributed to
Standard General or
   its nominees in this solicitation.

3. Please revise slide 6 in the investor presentation to include the dates the
statements were

4. Please revise slide 17, or add an annex, to include the names of the peers
included in each
   line item.

5. Refer to the third column of slide 48. Provide us with support for the
assertion that
   TEGNA's board "insisted that any suitor make a fully financed, all cash
offer with
   committed financing." In that regard, we note TEGNA's March 29, 2020 press
   stating that two parties "have not delivered any information on financing

6. Given your discussion in slides 55 and 56 of the share ownership of TEGNA's
board and of
   management's lack of open market purchases, please revise the investor
presentation to
   include the share ownership and open market purchases of your nominees.
