Sacto: Pax Denied

Paxson Communications suffers a defeat at the FCC, as its application for an extension of time to construct digital television facilities in Sacramento is denied.

The company had sought additional months to complete construction of KSPX-DT 48, the digital sibling to KSPX-29. The station's technical facilities, located in a strip mall near Mather Field, do not presently support either digital technology or studio production of any kind. In addition, the station is running behind in securing tower space in Walnut Grove for the proposed transmitter location. The analog transmitter is located above Shingle Springs in El Dorado County.

KSPX's sales and traffic functions are handled by KCRA-3, which also provides the station with two nightly rebroadcasts of KCRA 3 Reports at 7 and 11:30pm.
