HC2 Buys KSKT-CD San Marcos

HC2 filed with the FCC this week to buy KSKT-CD, a 3 kW  channel 36 LPTV facility on Mt. Woodson, for $4-million from NRJ. NRJ had recently bought the station to serve as a relay for KSCI Los Angeles to replace KUAN-LD, a decades-old translator that would have been displaced in the repacking auction.

HC2, formerly known as Primus Telecom or PTGI and based in Herndon, Virginia, late last year purchased the Spanish language Azteca America network, and already holds licenses, or has entered into purchase agreements, for over 100 LPTV stations nationwide.
