Gannett adds to Texas TV empire but doesn't land the big one in deal with London Broadcasting

Dallas-based KTXD-TV (Ch. 47) remains the property of London Broadcasting, but Gannett Co., Inc. otherwise has bought the company’s six remaining stations located in much smaller markets throughout Texas. Gannett already owns Dallas-based WFAA8 and TV stations in Houston, San Antonio and Austin. Details of the company’s new haul, including why KTXD wasn’t included, are on our Dallas-Fort Worth TV page.

Plus, Fort Worth-based NBC5 has hired another new reporter, Johnny Archer. More info is here.

Tuesday’s D-FW Nielsen ratings “snapshot” also is in.
