FOX on the block

February 13, 2003

Albany-- Want to buy a TV station?

There is one for sale.

Employees at FOX 31  were informed Wednesday afternoon their owners, Waitt Media, are looking to sell the station.

WFXL recently moved into a new building on Stuart Avenue, which could make it more profitable in the future. Waitt purchased the station four years ago for $15 million.

The Omaha Nebraska company owns Fox affiliates in Dothan and Panama city as well as two TV stations in Iowa.

Waitt Media CEO, Norman Waitt, Sr., is also a co-founder of the Gateway Computer empire.
