Gannett Buys 6 Texas Stations

Gannett took timeout from sending out cease and desist emails to buy 6 more stations.

Gannett says they purchased six of London Broadcasting television stations in Texas for $215 million in an all-cash transaction.

The stations: KCEN (NBC) Waco-Temple-Bryan; KYTX (CBS) Tyler-Longview; KIII (ABC) Corpus Christi, KBMT (ABC) and its digital subchannel KJAC (NBC) Beaumont-Port Arthur; KXVA (Fox) Abilene-Sweetwater; and KIDY (Fox) San Angelo.

All are small market stations but it adds to Gannett's recent purchase of the BELO stations.

The station buying spree has been going on in the industry for months. Gannett and Sinclair have been snatching up the most stations during the spree.
