NBC to Divest KWHY Ahead of Comcast Deal
Station group tells FCC it will sell L.A. station or put it into a divestiture trust

NBC had originally asked the commission for a temporary, six-month extension of its waiver of the FCC ownership rules to continue owning three stations in the market. The station group promised that within six months of the NBCU-Comcast deal's close, it would either sell KWHY, one of its three stations there, or put it in a trust.
It has told the FCC it no longer needs the extra six months and will have either sold KWHY by then or put it in the trust.
An NBC spokesperson had no comment on the move, but a source said a buyer has not yet been lined up.
KWHY was the logical choice; the other stations are KNBC and Telemundo affiliate KVEA.
