Landmark moving to sell TV stations


Landmark Communications says it has completed the strategic review of its broadcasting assets and has decided to sell its two television stations, KLAS-TV (Ch. 8, CBS) Las Vegas and WTVF-TV (Ch 5, CBS) Nashville. The company did not say how close it is to a deal to sell either of them or anything about pricing. Landmark announced early this month that it was reviewing all of its businesses and might sell all or parts of the company (1/4/08 TVBR #2). No word yet on whether or not Landmark will part with its crown jewel, The Weather Channel and its associated, believed to be worth around five billion bucks.
