Last week WLOX's parent company, Raycom Media, announced it is selling its television stations and production operations to Gray Television, an Atlanta based media company. This will be the third corporate owner of WLOX since the Love family sold the station in 1995.
Through the ownership changes, this station has remained committed to how we can best serve our viewers, be it through quality journalism, expert weather forecasting, and live broadcasts of community events.That will not change.
Gray, whose media origins trace back to the late 1800's has a strong history of localism and community commitment; the same things that are important for all of us here at WLOX. WLOX has always made our coverage and business relationship decisions locally, and that won't change either.
What will change, through our new ownership, is a corporate scale that will make this television station even more stable and vibrant in an ever-changing industry. As our company is growing, WLOX remains committed to serving the people of South Mississippi.
That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to firstname.lastname@example.org.
