NPG enters into sharing agreement

This week we announced a resource sharing agreement between NPG and Blackhawk Broadcasting, the owners of KYMA and KSWT, with NPG managing certain operations.  Due to the economic challenges facing Yuma/El Centro, and similar markets our size, this agreement will allow us to share resources in News, Engineering, Operations and Promotions that will result in a stronger operation that will be able serve the Yuma/El Centro area with a more robust news gathering operation and  deeper commitment to Community Service.  In addition to each company maintaining its current, independent news brands and newscasts in the market , viewers will enjoy an enhanced viewing experience using the latest News Set technology and Hi Definition news and programming on all stations.

The Sales operation of each station will be managed separately by Blackhawk and NPG.

This transaction is in full compliance with all FCC rules.
