It's always seemed odd to me that NBC would choose to own its affiliated 
TV station in a medium-sized market such as Hartford-New Haven. 
According to the news today, that's going to change.

A MarketWatch story says that NBC Universal is planning to sell its TV 
stations in Miami (WTVJ, market #16) and Hartford (WVIT, market #29) in 
order to focus on its stations in top-10 markets.

The story takes its info from a leaked internal memo by John Wallace, 
the president of the NBC Local Media Division.{25C56432-591B-4A97-A4E0-F08C8E11B3B5}&siteid=yahoomy
