FCC Approves Sale of WUPW, Layoffs Likely to Follow

The FCC has approved the sale of WUPW, bringing the Toledo Fox-affiliate one step closer to an expected round of layoffs.

The Toledo Blade reports that the $22 million deal for WUPW between LIN Media, the station’s current owner, and American Spirit Media was approved on Monday.  Attached to the deal is a shared services agreement with Raycom Media, which owns the market’s CBS-affiliate, WTOL.

As WUPW’s new owner pools its resources with WTOL, as many as 63 people could lose their jobs.  A formal announcement about the shared services agreement is expected next week.
