NBC Is Selling Its Columbus Station

The rumors have been swirling for a while, and it's now confirmed...NBC Universal is selling four affiliates in its smallest markets, including WCMH/4 in Columbus. (Report from the Columbus Business Journal.)

The network is getting out of Columbus and three other markets (Raleigh NC, Providence RI, Birmingham AL) to concentrate on larger markets with a strong Hispanic presence...the company owns the Telemundo Spanish-language network. Industry rumors seem to focus on The New York Times Company as the potential purchaser of the stations...NYT owns a number of other TV stations.
