White Knight Broadcasting
On April 24, 2013, as part of the sale of White Knight Broadcasting's partner Communications Corporation of America to the Nexstar Broadcasting Group, White Knight announced the sale of its entire group to Mission Broadcasting (except for KSHV-TV, which would be sold to a female-controlled company called Rocky Creek Communications), with Nexstar taking over the operations of the stations through shared services agreements. The deal was later withdrawn, and White Knight retained ownership of the stations although Nexstar had inherited the SSAs.
Malara Enterprises was the parent company of White Knight Broadcasting. White Knight owns or operates seven stations:
- KTPN-LD and KLPN-LP, Tyler-Longview-Lufkin, Texas
- KFXK-TV and KFXL-LP, Tyler-Longview-Lufkin, Texas
- KSHV-TV, Shreveport, Louisiana
- WVLA-TV, Baton Rouge, Louisiana
It also previously owned KKWB (now KTFN) in El Paso, Texas and KZUP-CD in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. KKWB, a WB affiliate at the time, was sold in 2002 to Entravision Communications, which converted the station to TeleFutura. KZUP, an independent low-power television station, was sold to Nexstar in 2016.
