CTV sells Brandon station for $1

Well, another $1 bidder for a small Canadian station has popped up, this one at least looking more credible than the PR-based Shaw proposal. A private investment firm has bought  CTV’s Brandon Manitoba outlet, meaning that it has a chance of continuing to exist. Interesting that small stations are being sold by major nets because they can’t make money, but smaller operators are convinced they can (this is the second sale in about a month of a small market station to a private operator.)
