Sweeps Stuff

Normally, May is the month tv folks put on their best face. This May, some of those faces may look a bit more anxious than normal.

I hear that the new owners off my old stations, WREG and WHNT are taking the helm this weekend or at least by the time the early news teams arrive at work Monday morning. Joe’s got some scoop of things down on the river. I’ve also heard that some folks weren’t too pleased with the presentation of the new benefits programs offered by to employees.

Meanwhile, in midtown folks at WPTY should start hearing more about their new owners after Clear-Channel announced its found a buyer for the 56 stations in the gruop to Providence Equity Partners.

Anyone find it interesting that two new owners of two/three tv sations in Memphis are Equity groups and not media companies?
