WKRG announced on it’s Facebook page last week, that the Mobile/Pensacola station will be getting a new set. The new set will debut in the next “2 to 3 weeks.”
The current station set is being dismantled and will be donated to local schools.
Last week, Florida News Center told you that a merger deal had been made between Media General (the owners of WKRG) and LIN TV (the owners of WALA and WFNA). WKRG, WALA, and WFNA are all three in the Mobile/Pensacola market. There was been much speculation which of the three stations with be kept by the new “merged” company, to be known as Media General. The fact that WKRG is getting a new set, might be a clue to which station”s” the new company plans to keep. The investment into these new updates at WKRG, might be worth holding onto by the soon-to-be larger Media General.
Stay tuned to Florida News Center for pictures and multimedia of the new changes at WKRG and the future status’ of WKRG, WALA, and WFNA.
