Scripps Snags Two LPTV Permits. One Opens New Possibilities


The use of a low-power TV signal to reach communities that may not have access to a full-power station’s signal due to distance is one that’s increasingly common, especially in an era of “cord cutting.”

Perhaps that’s why The E.W. Scripps Co. is agreeing to purchase a LPTV construction permit in the Southernmost City in the U.S.

At the same time, Scripps is adding a LPTV in a swath of Southern California it presently has no presence in. Could this point to an expansion of Scripps’ digital multicast networks?
