The article reports that Journal Broadcast Group has announced that it will acquire KWBA television (TV) station in Tucson, Arizona. According to Doug Kiel, vice chairman of Journal, the purchase will increase the station's presence in the area. This acquisition will be requiring a waiver from the Federal Communications Commission because current rules do not allow for ownership of two TV stations in a market.
