At Ex-Raycom FOX Affiliate, A New GM Arrives


With Gray Television’s merger with Raycom Media, meeting local ownership caps in Augusta, Ga., presented the C-Suite at Gray with a choice — keep CBS affiliate WRDW-12 alongside NBC low-power WAGT-CD 26, or sell WRDW in favor of Raycom’s FOX affiliate.

Gray chose to stick with CBS, keeping the affiliate alignment with long-dominant WTOC-11 in Savannah, selling the FOX station to Lockwood Broadcast Group in a deal that closed in January 2019. Now, Lockwood has a new leader at what’s known as “FOX54.”
