Statement of DuJuan McCoy
President and CEO of Circle City Broadcasting, LLC
Indianapolis, IN (April 6, 2019): Today I am proud to announce that a new company I founded and control, Circle City Broadcasting, will purchase CW affiliate WISH-TV and MyNetworkTV affiliate WNDY-TV in my home town of Indianapolis.
I was born and raised in Indianapolis, where I attended Ben Davis High School and Butler University. I began my 30 year broadcast career in 1989 at WTTV, Channel 4, as an Account Executive.
In 2007, I created Bayou City Broadcasting and purchased my first television stations, KIDY (FOX) in San Angelo, TX and KXVA (FOX) in Abilene, TX. I purchased my second group of stations of WEVV (CBS) and WEEV-LD (FOX) in Evansville, IN through Bayou City Broadcasting Evansville, Inc. My third acquisition was for the KADN (FOX), KLAF (NBC) and NADN (MyNetworkTV) stations in Lafayette, LA through Bayou City Broadcasting Lafayette, Inc.
Words cannot express how overjoyed I am to be able to come full circle and own WISH and WNDY in my hometown of Indianapolis! This is a dream come true for me.
I am looking forward to working with the great staffs of WISH and WNDY and continuing on their excellent path of providing more local news and local programming to our community.
Additionally, It would be very remiss of me to not recognize Perry Sook and Nexstar for their continued and concerted efforts to expand diversity in broadcast ownership by agreeing to sell to me. Thank you Perry and Nexstar for that…and making dreams come true!
