Quincy Takes WBIJ for $1.55 Million
QUINCY, ILL.
Quincy Newspapers, the family-owned multimedia company in the eponymous Illinois city, has purchased WBIJ-TV from the widow of the late Dennis Selenka for $1.55 million. The station, located in Crandon, Wis., is an affiliate of FamilyNet, the religious TV network originating in Atlanta, Ga.

Crandon is in the Wausau-Rhinelander designated market area, where Quincy also owns WAOW-TV, the ABC affiliate, and WYOW-TV, a satellite to WAOW. It has asked the FCC to allow it to run WBIJ as a satellite of WAOW as well, as two stations have no citygrade overlap.

Quincy owns 13 stations in Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Minnesota, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
