KTYX, the Tyler, Texas station that had its 60 minutes of fame as the setting for Anchorwoman, has been sold, according to the Tyler Morning Telegraph. The buyer is London Broadcasting, a joint venture between former Gaylord Entertainment head Terry London and SunTx Capital Partners, and the seller is Max Media.
The station went for $25 million.
I happened to be chatting with KYTX G.M. Phil Hurley yesterday, who said the whole Anchorwoman experience–remember, it was a Fox reality show where a former wrestling diva learned to be an anchor in a few short weeks–was nothing but positive. Ratings went up, and everyone had a good laugh.
London told the paper he’s bullish on more acquisitions.
