Ravi Kapur Wins A Must-Carry Fight In North Dakota


For 60 years until 2014, CBS Television Network coverage of the Fargo and Grand Forks, N. Dakota, area involved a broadcast facility that used the KXJB call letters. At that time, Gray Television shifted CBS programming to a digital LPTV facility and sold the former home of “KX4.”

The buyer? Ravi Kapur, the entrepreneur who has been snapping up low-power TV stations across the U.S. Kapur rechristened the station as KRDK-TV, and ownership of the COZI TV affiliate has had its challenges — namely, carriage on two MVPDs serving Fargo.

A fresh FCC decision will likely resolve that issue.
