KAUZ, Gray’s ABC affiliate in Wichita Falls, Texas, is running a promo for the station’s weather app that appeals to all those who don’t like cutting the grass.
Raycom chooses the GM of its Knoxville, Tenn., Fox affil to lead its ABC station in Wichita Falls, Texas-Lawton, Okla.
The FCC has approved the sale of six Texas stations in a deal that will quadruple the number of stations Raycom Media has in Texas. The $160 million purchase will likely be completed Dec. 1.
The deal comprises six stations in Texas in Waco (KXXV), Amarillo (KFDA-KEYU), Odessa-Midland (KWAB-KWES) and Wichita Falls (KSWO), plus a second station in Wichita Falls (KAUZ) that Raycom is buying from Hoak Media and then spinning off to American Spirit, which will enter into a shared services agreement with Raycom, under which KSWO will provide news, production services, administrative support and equipment and building space to KAUZ.
