July 28, 2011 | By Harry A. Jessell | TVNewsCheck

High Plains Broadcasting, the duopoly partner of Newport Television in six markets, has agreed to sell KFTY San Francisco to Spanish-language station group Una Vez Mas, it was announced Thursday. The price was $5.2 million, according to an FCC filing seeking approval of the deal.

KFTY is licensed to Santa Rosa on the northern fringe of the San Francisco market (DMA 6).

High Plains Broadcasting owns five other stations. All six are operated under contract by Newport Television (formerly Clear Channel Television), owner of stations in 19 markets.

Founded in 2002 and headquartered in Dallas, Una Vez Mas is the largest affiliate group of Azteca America, a Mexico-based network that reaches nearly 90% of Hispanic homes in the U.S.

Una Vez Mas' lineup includes stations in Houston; Dallas; Albuquerque, N.M.; Austin, Texas; Corpus Christi, Texas; Las Vegas; Phoenix, Ariz.; San Antonio, Texas; Santa Barbara, Calif.: Tampa, Fla.; Atlanta; Washington; and Tucson, Ariz.

Like the others, KFTY will become an Azteca America affiliate.
