Nashville CBS affiliate sold


And the winner is Randy Bongarten’s Bonten Media Group Inc. in what is literally a landmark transaction – that is, the seller is Landmark Communications. Although terms weren’t immediately released, it is expected that the sale price of CBS WTVF-TV Nashville will be north of $200M. Nashville will instantly become the crown jewel in the Bonten portfolio.
