SPANISH BROADCASTING SYSTEM will put its MIAMI low-power TV station WSBS-CD (MEGA TV, operated as a rebroadcaster of full-power WSBS-TV/KEY WEST) and its HOUSTON full-power station KTBU-TV (MEGA TV and five brokered digital subchannels) into the FCC's television spectrum incentive auction, the company announced MONDAY (1/11).
The company said in a release that it is putting the stations in the auction "to potentially generate cash proceeds that are expected to be created by the auction process." Placing licenses in the auction does not necessarily mean that the spectrum will generate any successful bids.
