Mid-Michigan: Newsmakers Oct. 29, 2009




Flint Journal:

As Central Michigan University prepares to purchase Flint's public broadcasting station WFUM-TV, the new likely owners are promising viewers more local programming in the city and surrounding areas. CMU this week agreed to purchase WFUM (Channel 28) from the University of Michigan for $1 million with money from its reserves and to be repaid by CMU Public Broadcasting, which would acquire the Flint station. The sale won't be finalized until the Federal Communications Commission approves the license transfer. "It certainly allows us to continue to provide public broadcasting to the Flint area and that was something that was in jeopardy," said CMU Spokesman Steve Smith, who said CMU expects to take control of programming by mid to late November... WFUM would bring more local programming to Flint under Central Michigan University ownership (Thu, 10/29)
