From TVNewsCheck this AM, Ramar Communications is selling Telemundo affiliate KASA, its satellite stations and its LP translators to NBCUniversal.

 

From this paperwork, they're selling the stations for $12.5M.

And in case anyone asks, the chances of NBCU pulling a WBTS on KASA and swiping their affiliation from KOB to start an NBC New Mexico are very small to zero. So get it out of your heads now!

That said, KRTN-LD and KUPT-LD don’t necessarily fit in to NBCU’s portfolio since it’d be difficult to integrate them as repeaters of KASA, since it has enough repeater coverage already. KRTN-TV and (the full-power) KUPT likely would be converted into KASA satellites (or a standard satellite in KUPT’s case, since it already simulcasts KASA on a sub), though KRTN-LD (a MeTV affiliate) and KUPT-LD (a Movies! affiliate) seem like they could be candidates for being spun-off to Weigel.

Hmm...I don't get it but I guess this is for boosting their Telemundo O&O coffers. They can easily stick Cozi and LX on the remainders...

 

I think Brad Moran, nearing retirement age (he graduated from college in 1982), wanted out of the television business, at least. After this sale closes, just eight radio properties and some digital assets remain.

 

Also worth noting that Ray Moran died in 2018.
