KSN owner among those seeking to buy Fox Sports regional networks

The New York Post is reporting that Nexstar Broadcasting, which owns KSNF and manages KODE in the Joplin area, is among the suitors for the 22 Fox Sports regional networks.

Disney is attempting to sell the networks to reduce anti-trust concerns about its multi-billion dollar merger with 21st Century Fox.

Nexstar, which recently bought Tribune Media to become the largest owner of television stations in the United States, is among the companies that want to buy all of the regional networks, according to the Post article.

The regional networks include Fox Sports Midwest-St. Louis and Fox Sports Midwest-Kansas City, which offer St. Louis Cardinals and Kansas City Royals baseball coverage, respectively.
