Kinda interesting to watch how KRDO is reporting on its own sale. At 5:30, they ran a little retrospective by news director Dave Rose (with some weird music underneath) and grabbed some soundbites from Harry Hoth and David Bradley. Actually, not quite at 5:30, they buried it at the end of the newscast.

"We've had a lot of people who wanted to buy this station over the years," Hoth said in the report. "We ran into the Bradley family and their four generations and they're the ones who are going to take this station into the 21st century."

"We think they've built a wonderful station there," Bradley said.

I thought it was a little strange the other stations didn't report the deal (let me know if they did and I missed it), not because of the sale itself, but because the Hoths have such deep roots in this town. That's why we're doing a bigger story on this than we did on KXRM's sale last month.

UPDATE: KOAA did a story at 6 p.m. Short, but covered the essentials.
