Denali Media to Purchase Three Stations in Alaska

Denali Media Holdings, a subsidiary of General Communication Inc., has announced plans to purchase three Alaska stations: KTVA in Anchorage, KATH in Juneau and KSCT in Sitka.

Denali Media will purchase CBS-affiliated KTVA from Alaska Broadcasting Co./Media News Group and KATH-KSCT from North Star Broadcasting. No purchase price for the stations was announced.

“Our intention is to invest our resources and transform KTVA, KATH and KSCT into a news and entertainment leader unparalleled in Alaska,” General Communications president Ron Duncan said in a statement. “We look at these purchases as the first step toward providing a new statewide platform for news and information, as well as providing unique content and value for GCI’s video subscribers.”

John Tracy, the former news director at KTUU in Anchorage, will be the lead consultant in charge of “rebuilding and rebranding” the news departments at the three stations.
