Inyo County, Calif., is a remote area of the Golden State, located between the Sierra Nevada mountains and the Nevada state line. There’s one town of significance, Bishop. While Fresno and Bakersfield may appear to be near, high terrain and highways make the distance greater.
As such, Bishop is, believe it or not, within the Los Angeles DMA. That’s exactly why a TV station licensed to this little town has just been purchased by the owner of the MeTV Network and related Oldies radio brand.
