Posted on Thu, Jun 14, 2007 at 4:00 AM

On Wednesday, Rupert Murdoch's News Corp. announced it planned to sell nine of its Fox-affiliated TV stations, including the one in Memphis.

News Corp. is making a bid to buy Wall Street Journal publisher Dow Jones & Co. for $5 billion. The stations it is selling are in the smaller markets, including Birmingham, Alabama, and Greensboro, North Carolina.

The Memphis Fox affiliate is WHBQ-TV 13.

Earlier this year, the New York Times Co. sold nine of its stations, including Memphis station, WREG.
