Jackson TV Station To Move Soon

TV station

Time is running out for Jackson Hole’s television station.  After a five-year battle with the FCC, PMCM, LLC was given permission to move the Wyoming TV station to serve Delaware  under a little known provision of FCC law stating that each state should have at least one VHS station. While the transmitter will be located in Philadelphia, the city of license is actually Wilmington, Delaware.  The station will continue to wear a call-sign with a “K” prefix reserved normally for stations west of the Mississippi.  While an exact moving date for the station has not been announced, the company says programming will be announced in Delaware this fall. KJWY was sold by Sunbelt Communications 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.  The Jackson station went on the air in 1990 as KJVI, but later changed its call letters.  Curiously, the law does not strip Jackson of its allotment for a TV station, and another company could seek an allotment on channel 2 sometime in the future.
