New Vision has acquired NBC affiliate KSN-TV in Wichita from Montecito Broadcast Group, making it the third TV station to be sold in that market this year.
Earlier, Schurz Communications purchased Banks Broadcasting’s KSCW-TV to pair with its KWCH-TV in a duopoly, and Fox affiliate KSAS-TV was sold by Clear Channel (as is the rest of its TV group) to Providence Equity Partners.
New Vision purchased three other stations in the deal – CBS affiliate KOIN-TV in Portland, Ore.; top-rated Fox affiliate KHON-TV in Honolulu (and its CW sister station) and KSNT-TV, the NBC affiliate in Topeka. The deal also includes KSN’s five satellite stations.
So come down and buy a TV station in Kansas! Hurry, offer ends soon.
