Do you know why?

I know at some stage Tucker Carlson tried to find out how they got that contract in the first place, but the details were well buried.

I don't know what Tucker is talking about. They sell to the airports. The airports don't pay them

they claim it's due to a decline in air travel, and more people “consuming content on their personal devices”

The real story is that they pay the larger airports ~ $150,000 a year, buy the video screens and pay for the connectivity to show the broadcasts.

They make money by selling ads

So it's obviously because they are not making as much money on ads because their viewership is down

I did not realize that they funded the entire endeavor.
