Is An ABC-NBC Duopoly Coming To Topeka?

Maybe so. PBC Networks, New Vision’s virtual duopoly partner in Youngstown and Savannah, is buying ABC affiliate KTKA in Topeka, Kan., where it could be operated by New Vision in tandem with its NBC affiliate there, KSNT. The seller in Topeka is the owner of the local paper, which has no other broadcast interests. Price was $1.5 million, according to one source.
