The NBC-TV affiliate in Peoria is being sold. Quincy Newspapers Incorporated has agreed to purchase WEEK-TV from Granite Broadcasting.
Federal Communications Commission approval of the deal requires ending a sales agreement between WEEK and ABC affiliate WHOI, and WAOE-My59. The stations will continue to share news staffs.
Quincy President and CEO Ralph Oakley says he looks forward to upgrading equipment and programming at the stations.
The sale is expected to close in about a month. The purchase price was not disclosed.
