Texas station on the block


Sunbelt Multimedia is having trouble keeping up with its bills, and as a result, its Telemundo affiliate in the Harlingen-Weslaco-Brownsville-McAllen DMA has been put into receivership and is for sale.

The station is Channel 40 KTLM-TV, licensed to Rio Grande City TX.

Patrick Communications managing partner Larry Patrick has been named to run the station in receivership, and his company will be trying to peddle it to a new owner. Documents have been forwarded to the FCC to officially put the station under Patrick’s control. His media company will try to earn enough money to repay creditors of Sunbelt Multimedia.
