ROANOKE (WSLS 10)   We have exciting news to share with you about the future of WSLS 10.  We received word today that Chicago based Graham Media Group will purchase WSLS 10.  Graham currently owns stations in Houston, Detroit, San Antonio, Orlando and Jacksonville, Florida.

"Graham Media has a terrific reputation and is known to be deeply involved in local initiatives and public service projects that serve, inform and improve their local communities, said WSLS 10 VP & General Manager Garry Kelly.  "We are excited about our future and look forward to continuing to serve our viewers with the local news coverage they trust."

The deal must be approved by the Federal Communications Commission and is contingent on the successful completion of the merger of our parent company, Media General and Nexstar Broadcasting.

"This is an exciting time in our business with many, many changes, adds Kelly.   "It's been an honor to be part of such a historic company like Media General. Now we look forward to becoming part of another highly respected organization in Graham Media.  While our ownership may change, our commitment to you remains the same.  You will continue to see the same familiar faces delivering the news of the day and giving back to the community we call home."
