Goodbye KJWY-TV

December 20, 2012 Jackson Hole, Teton County, Town of Jackson No Comments
TV station

The debate over whether Jackson’s lone TV station could be moved to Delaware came to an end this week when the US Court of Appeals ruled that the FCC was in error when it disapproved the reallocation of the non-digital channel.  The decision is based on a law that states that each state should have at least one VHS station, and Delaware does not. Consequently, the court ordered the FCC to approve the move.  KJWY was sold by Sunbelt Communications Company in 2009 to PMCM TV, LLC which is a privately owned company made up of a group of radio and former TV operators from New Jersey.  Curiously, the law does not strip Jackson of its allotment for a TV station and another company could seek an allotment on channel 2 in the future.  No time frame for KJWY’s move out of Jackson has been set.
