I am hearing trough the grapevine from people in the know that News Corp is interested in Palm Beach FOX affiliate WFLX! Other info is speculative as to what News Corp wants to or plans to do with WFLX.
It’s an open secret Murdoch has been wanting a FOX affiliate of his own in South Florida for some time. WSVN owner Ed Ansin is said to have rebuffed every advance by Newscorp to sell so short of swiping WBFS from CBS, WFLX seems like News Corp’s best bet for a station in the SFL
Currently WFLX doesn’t have a news department. For about twenty years the station’s news have been produced by WPEC CBS12 trough an agreement with owner Raycom. Though they have their own studios on Blue Heron in West Palm Beach where many FOX News guests visit for appearances via satellite. West Palm residents Rush Limbaugh and Ann Coulter being just two of them
News Corp already owns the FOX affiliates in Tampa and Orlando and FLNewsCenter says Newscorp is showing interest in WTLH in Tallahassee as well
