It will also expand Gannett’s clout with the Big Three networks as an owner of NBC, CBS and ABC affiliates reaching nearly one-third of U.S. TV households.
Gannett will pay $1.5 billion in cash, or $13.75 a share, to acquire Dallas-based Belo. Deal also includes the assumption of $715 million in existing Belo debt.
