KREG-TV, broadcasting from Sunlight Mountain in Glenwood Springs, CO, and providing over-the-air channels 3.1 - CBS, 3.2 - LAFF, & 3.3 - MyNetwork TV, to the cities of Glenwood Springs, Rifle, Aspen, Carbondale, and the surrounding areas, has ceased broadcast operations as of 12:00pm on January 20th, 2017.
KREG-TV has been sold to Marquee Broadcasting, Inc., of Brookeville, MD.
The sale of the station was required by the FCC as a prerequisite for its parent company, Nexstar Broadcasting, Inc., to complete a merger with Media General, forming Nexstar Media Group.
As required, notification of the pending sale was made to the Glenwood Springs Post Independent, and was published between June 30th and July 3rd, 2016. The sale became official on January 17, 2017.
As a result, KREG-TV will not be returning to air in the Glenwood Springs viewing areas with Grand Junction-originating programming. Area Comcast cable customers will be affected as well.
Marquee Broadcasting, Inc., will begin their broadcast operations as soon as possible in keeping with their time table.
