Here’s a late-afternoon bombshell for you: WFXT-TV (Channel 25) has been acquired by Cox Media Group, part of a station swap that will result in Fox owning two TV stations in San Francisco. Cynthia Littleton of Variety has the details.
I hope the move from Fox to Cox doesn’t harm the local news operation. Fox 25 News is one of the better-funded news organizations in Boston, with a fair number of people who are native to the area — including anchors Maria Stephanos and Mark Ockerbloom. Mike Beaudet, who’s joining our faculty this fall, is an award-winning investigative reporter.
One thought on “That’s Cox 25 to you”
Cox does run a tight ship at WSB-TV in Atlanta, but management wants to let go of five well-established anchors at WTEV/WAWS Jacksonville, one of their more recent acquisitions. It’s something that even the city council president there has disagreed with. So, we’ll see where the continuity lies.
