KDSM-TV, the FOX affiilate in Des Moines, is being sold as part of Sinclair Broadbcasting's required divestiture before its merger with Tribune Media. The new owners of KDSM and 8 other Sinclair stations will be Standard Media Group, LLC.
Sinclair is required to divest a station in Des Moines as part of its proposed purchase of Tribune Broadcasting, since Tribune owns NBC affiliate WHO-DT/13 and both WHO and KDSM rank in the top four in the market. KDSM does not have a news department and airs a 9 p.m. newscast produced by WHO.
