$16 million? Boy has that place lost it's value in the last 2 years and it needs a whole ton of upgrades. Good luck to the new guy. I hope your pockets are deep. Here's the link. http://www.cnyradio.com/2013/10/21/wktv-being...

Yes I hear the first directive that was given out by the new owners was to have a strict policy where all female employees at the station are to go topless as soon as the take over is official ...Stay turned !

Boy are you people gullible. That's obviously a bogus article. I hardly think the sale of WKTV would have headlines of "BREAKING NEWS". Think about it people. It's not even from a reputable source!

Not a reputable source?? The FCC has it on their website.

The Donovan Dispatch will report about it sometime after the first of the year.

Comments like this, dull, unfunny and adolescent are a good indicator of the emotional sophistication of most Utica people. And it explains why the area is considered a pervert sex-offender laden backwater while inhabitants think it's an intellectual haven LMAO!

CNYradio.com is a reputable source. The site has been honored twice by the Syracuse Press Club's annual awards. The article about WKTV's sale has links directly to the relevant documents on the FCC website. Anytime a radio orTV station in the USA is sold, it requires FCC approval, so all of the application documents become public record on the FCC website. To people who work in broadcasting -- the site's primary audience, this IS breaking news, considering no other local outlet had reported it yet, and it's only the 4th time in over 50 years that the station has changed ownership. By contrast, some radio stations around here have changed owners 3 or 4 times in just the past decade or so.

i only hope they get rid of Jason and Jenel. Maybe they will see neither has any talent to be announcers. Jason can retread the same news story from 5:00am until 1:00pm and still misread the story no matter how many times he has read it. Plus, the way he does read the story you have no idea what it is about when he is through. Jenel is just phony, and to ghetto.

Holy crap. The Observer Disgrace actually published an article about the sale. I'm thinking, Donna Donovan is either on vacation or in rehab possibly.

Ignore them Many people are shallow and too dull to ever learn the fine art of differentiating topix's posts. They can't spot the truth amid the chaff and resent Topix and a lot of social media. Especially those with skeletons in theri closets. So not only don't they realize Topix has news days/weeks before the local podunk stations and newspapers,a lot of it is true. Topix outs things/news they'd never want to report if it triggers their coward mode publishes if... in a twist of the New York Time's sloganry: If it fits them to print! haha!

I'd like to know why Prather resigned. There also seem to be a lot of Heartland Media's out there. Who knows what changes this guy might try? Anything's an improvement.

Clearly something was going wrong beforehand, as evident by the multiple long-time employees moving elsewhere. Delachase, Donavan, Pitt... Worden last year. Who knows whats going on? Maybe this is the new boost they need, since Smith stopped giving a crap.

I'm a former client who used to advertise there. That sales girl Michele Liddi is in charge now from what it seems. I used to visit the place and they moved her office up near the Smith president's office when she's only a sales person. All business deals went through her. She's clearly pulling some important strings.

If she was smart she would move Jason and Jenel right out the door. It is a shame they have ruined the morning news now Jason alone is ruining the noon news.
