Sinclair to Buy Vegas Station (Update)

FIRST on FTVLive: Back in June, FTVLive told you that Sinclair suits were spotted inside Las Vegas station KSNV. We pointed out at the time that it was a good bet that Sinclair was going to make an offer to buy the station.

Longtime KSNV owner Jim Rogers had passed away and Sinclair was moving in on his old stomping ground. 

In a June staff meeting, KSNV GM Lisa Howfield tried to calm (lie?) to staff, telling them that Sinclair was in the building not to look at KSNV, but because Sinclair had purchased some other Rogers' station (i.e. Reno) and they were there because in was the headquarters for the company. 

Rogers wife Beverly is quoted as saying that she would follow her husband's wishes and not sell the station. 

Well, word is that sometime this morning it will be announced that Sinclair is going to purchase KNSV in Sin City.

Word is that Rogers widow, Beverly told the staff in an afternoon staff meeting that Sinclair was buying the station.

KSNV staffers are said to be very nervous. 

Expect the official announcement to come down later this morning.

Update: FTVLive was the FIRST to tell you about Sinclair buying KSNV. Now, as promised the official announcement has been made.
