ALABAMA TV STATIONS FORGET THE NEW YORK CITY PLAZA!
They’re looking to build a new facility in Alabama.
A new Alabama TV station, KTHX-TV, has been granted an FCC waiver to move its new production facilities to the state.
KTHZ, an Alabama-based TV station that airs a wide variety of programming, would have to relocate its current production and distribution facilities in Alabama to get the waiver.
The deal would cost Alabama about $4 million.
The KTHK deal with Comcast could give the station more time to develop a new, larger facility in Birmingham.
This is not the first time KTHR has gotten a waiver to relocate to Alabama.
KTVI-TV in Montgomery is also moving to Alabama, and KTVK-TV is also expected to move to Alabama later this year.
ALABAMAS TV STATION FORGET the NEW YORK STATION?
The new FCC waiver gives KTHQ-TV a little time to negotiate with the KTHF-TV-Channel in Alabama, according to a KTHY-TV news release.
KFLEX-AM-TV Channel in Montgomery has a history of broadcasting on KTHI-FM, which is owned by the Montgomery Broadcasting Company.
KTXA-AM in Montgomery also has a long history of programming on KFMB-FM and KTXD-AM, which are owned by Alabama Broadcasting Corporation.
ALTONA-TV News has reached out to Comcast for comment.
The new KTHV-TV license will expire in 2021.
