  1. What does this mean? Not clear on what the buyer is doing with KQHO. What is a broadband company doing with a TV station?

  2. Hi, John — the fact is that this company, regardless of its name, owns quite a few television properties. It’s possible they are thinking about participating in the incentive auction, although according to the FCC database this station is not a Class A and at this point, it would not be eligible to participate. It’s entirely possible they bought it as a going concern, but there are also people out there trying to get a definitive statement on the status of LPTVs going into the auction. So we’ll have to watch for developments.
