News Corp. Says No Talks To Sell Stations

Fox Television Stations parent company News Corp. says it is not in discussions to sell its stations in smaller TV markets.

A column published in B&C Monday says that News Corp. Chairman Rupert Murdoch was considering selling any Fox O&O station outside of the top 25 markets and had recently asked Liberty Media Chairman John Malone if he were interested.
A News Corp. spokesman Monday responded: "We’re not in any talks internally or externally to sell stations. We have no plans at all to sell our smaller-market stations."
