Texas DIY sold


Lee W. Shubert, working as a court-appointed receiver, has found a buyer for KUQI-TV CP in Corpus Christi, and the watchdog community may be glad to know the station will stay out of the hands of the white male segment of society. The CP, licensed to Minority Media TV 38 LLC, is going to High Maintenance Broadcasting LLC, headed by Lauryn Hoffman, Deidre Gillis and Vanisha Mallory. We do not know the minority status of the buyer’s principals, but we would be very surprised indeed to learn that they are anything other than females. The price of the transaction is listed at 6.6M in documentation filed with the FCC.
