ZGS sells stations to Telemundo

ZGS- TelemundoZGS Communications is selling all of its stations – 13 in all – to Telemundo.

After weeks of chatter about the sale of the stations, both companies confirmed the transaction.

Both companies will file joint applications for FCC approval, which would give Telemundo ownership of ZGS’s stations in Washington, D.C., Richmond, Hartford, Springfield, Providence, Fort Myers, Tampa, Orlando, Melbourne, Kissimmee, Raleigh, El Paso and Las Cruces.

The deal changes Telemundo’s plans for the launch of its D.C. owned and operated station.

You can read more details about the Telemundo-ZGS deal on Forbes.

    Claro para después decir que ganaron en mercados donde ni siquiera hay competencia

    I’m very excited that means Telemundo could be returning to the Raleigh-Durham market finally. And unlike that last time this could be a Telemundo O&O that would complete against already established Univision O&O WUVC. We be the only market in North Carolina to have two Spanish-Language Network affiliates.

    Muchos cambios a la vuelta de la esquina.
    Es una pe a que Ron Gordon y el Sr Zavala le entregaran su empresa a NBC.
    Lo que con tanto sacrificio construyeron.
    Ahora empezarán los favoritismos de algunos mediocres de Telemundo a colocar sus amigos.
