News-Press and Gazette Co. purchases four Columbia TV stations

News-Press and Gazette Co. has purchased four stations in Columbia from JW Broadcasting, the Columbia Tribune reports. The $16 million deal includes KMIZ-TV, Fox-22, MyZouTV and Me-TV.

University of Missouri curator David Bradley owns the St. Joseph-based News-Press company. He told the university, which owns KOMU-TV, the local NBC affiliate, he’d recuse himself from any dealings with the station.

The sale is subject to FCC approval and will likely close in November.
