Price revealed in Santa Rosa TV deal


We knew that Hispanic television group Una Vez Mas has a deal to add the San Francisco-Oakland-San Jose DMA to its portfolio with a deal for KFTY Santa Rosa CA. Now we know how much broker Kalil and Co. is holding in escrow, and the total amount to which the escrow deposit will be applied.

Kalil has $1M in its tender loving care, and that amount will be added to a total purchase price of $5.2M, due in cash at closing.

The buyer, led by Terry Crosby and Randy Nonberg, is getting the license from High Plains Broadcasting. Newport Television is also involved on the seller side, thanks to its SSA and JSA with High Plains.

Una Vez Mas has already announced that the station is destined to become an affiliate of the Azteca America network.
