St. Petersburg May Sell Its LPTV Station

The city of St. Petersburg, Fla., is trying to sell its sliver of the broadcast spectrum licensed by the FCC. The license gives the city access to the airwaves, which it now uses to broadcast its television programs, including city council meetings. At its Thursday meeting, the city council is expected to be asked whether it should allow Hadden & Associates media brokers to try to sell WSPF-CA. The city is exploring the sale because of a combination of tight finances and low numbers of people who can only receive the signal through TV antennas.
