New port for Newport station


Providence Equity Partners’ interest in Newport Television and Univision forced it to shop KFTY-TV Santa Rosa, part of the San Francisco DMA. Its first attempt hit a pothole, and now James Martin’s High Plains Broadcasting has stepped into the buyer’s role. It’ll get the indy for $1M. Changes at the station should be utterly unnoticeable, however, since High Plains will enter into a JSA/SSA arrangement with the seller.
