Broadcasting & Cable is reporting Communications Corporation of America is putting its stations up for sale. CCA either owns or has agreements with 25 television stations in Texas, Louisiana and Indiana.
Only four out of CCA’s 25 stations produce a local newscast, KTSM, the NBC affiliate for EL Paso, KETK, the NBC affiliate for Tyler, WVLA, the NBC affiliate for Baton Rouge, and KDBC, the EL Paso CBS affiliate. The rest either air no news at all or rely on the four group stations who do to produce it for them.
The company emerged from bankruptcy in 2007 under the control of Silver Point Capital which also controls Granite Broadcasting Corporation.
