Griffin Communications, which has purchased KSBI-52, has discontinued KSBI’s secondary digital channel “This TV,” 52.2, which had carried old series and movies.

“It had a very, very small audience,” said Rob Krier, Griffin Communications vice president and chief operating officer.

Griffin Communications, which owns KWTV-9, a CBS affiliate, and Tulsa CBS affiliate KOTV-6 and CW affiliate KQCW-19, purchased KSBI from Family Broadcasting LLC effective Dec. 1.

Krier said there are no plans to change the programming of KSBI, a MyNetworkTV affiliate. The station doesn’t offer news programming.

“As we move down the road, we’ll see,” he said.

Krier said KSBI will offer the company flexibility in allowing it to move CBS programming over from KWTV during severe weather and breaking news.

KWTV uses its secondary digital channel 9.2 for News 9 Now, which reruns local news programming and also is offered on Cox Communications and a few other cable providers.
