A station-to-be earmarked for Ginger TX is changing hands before it can be built, or even get call letters assigned. If Ginger were just a little further south, it would be in between Tyler TX and Dallas TX.
The seller is Hispanic Family Christian Network Inc., headed by Antonio Cesar Guel. The buyer is the Central Park Church of God, headed by Juan E. Martinez.
