South Bend, Indiana, based LeSEA (Le
ssociation) owns several full-power stations in South Bend, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Tulsa, and Hawaii (Honolulu and satellites in Wailuku - serving Maui - and in Hilo). They used to own a Denver-area station, but sold it to Liberman (Estrella TV). LeSEA continues to air its programming on the Denver station on the .2 subchannel.
You'll likely find that the programming won't change much over what it has been. LeSEA is a Christian organization, but its TV stations show a lot of family-oriented general entertainment programming. I'm sure the station's agreement with King Kong makes it more valuable. I doubt they will try to end the contract.
