News on Meredith Corporation
A while back, I speculated by an article that WSMV may be up for sale in the future. Well, now Meredith Corp., owner of WSMV, has sold four of its TV stations, none of which are WSMV, but in this article, they have said that Meredith is also considering selling its entire station group. It also goes on to say that Meredith has been unsure of its broadcasting future ever since its planned merger with Media General collapsed in 2016. So, I don't know when or if WSMV will be sold, but as soon as I find out something I will let you know.
Scripps's ION Acquisition Completed
I have just learned today, via the below articles, that Scripps's, owner of WTVF NewsChannel 5, Acquisition of ION Media and all of their TV stations, including WNPX, has been completed. They still have to file with the FCC to get their approval of ownership. What this holds for the future of both WTVF and WNPX, I don't know right now, but ION will now be a part of Scripp's ample amount of networks which includes CourtTV, Newsy, Bounce, Grit, Laff, and Court TV Mystery.

WJFB's Application Granted
WJFB's FCC application to move their broadcast antenna to northern Nashville antenna farm has been granted. It expires in three years, but it won't take them that long. In my opinion, if nothing goes wrong and they go full steam ahead with this, they will be broadcasting from there by either this summer or fall or even sooner. I will post as soon as I hear anything new about their move.
I am now finished with the updates. I hope you were able to digest all that. If you have any thoughts about these updates, just leave a comment below. Until more news breaks, that's all for now.
