News director Richard Jacobs confirmed with TVSpy, the station chopper is listed for sale on a site a tipster sent us. Check it out by clicking here.
He said the station had entered into a shared helicopter agreement with FOX affiliate KPTV, but went quiet when we asked for more details about the agreement and wouldn’t say what was going to happen to KGW’s helicopter pilot.
A spokesperson for the company selling the helicopter told TVSpy the chopper was first listed in the Fall and is going for $1,250,000.
TVSpy has asked KGW’s parent company Gannett and KPTV for more info. We will update when we hear back.
