On July 20, 2012, one day after Cox Media Group purchased four television stations in Jacksonville and Tulsa from Newport Television, Cox put channel 11 (along with the LMA for KAME-TV) and sister stations in Steubenville, Ohio, Johnstown, Pennsylvania and El Paso, Texas (all in markets that are smaller than Tulsa), plus several radio stations in medium to small markets, on the selling block. On February 25, 2013, Cox announced that it would sell the four television stations and the LMA for KAME to Sinclair Broadcast Group. The sale was approved by the FCC on April 29, and was finalized on May 2.
