2 WMNT-CA Owners Opposing Pending Sale

Two minority-stake owners of Toledo low-power TV station WMNT-CA have asked the FCC to halt a pending agreement to sell the station to a New York-based media firm. In a petition, Jonathan James and Jerry Jones, who collectively own 19% of WMNT, say that they want the sale put on hold until the FCC can investigate aspects of the sale agreement that they claim have been kept secret by the station’s majority owner, Jesse Weatherby.
