Nexstar Broadcasting Group purchased WNTZ-TV FOX 48 from Communications Corporation of America on [January 1, 2015]. WNTZ-TV FOX 48 is the Central Louisiana and the Miss-Lou areas’ “Entertainment Station!”. Featuring programming that appeals to a broad group of viewers, FOX 48 is truly a “broadcast” entity. WNTZ-TV has always been a leader in new technology in the Central Louisiana and Miss-Lou area. Topping the list of many “firsts” are the accomplishments of being the first to broadcast programming in high-definition in this market – both network and syndicated – and being able to produce and air high definition commercial announcements on behalf of our advertisers.
FOX 48’s syndicated programming includes Family Feud with Steve Harvey, Judge Judy (America’s number one court show), and The Big Bang Theory. FOX 48 is also a secondary My Network TV station featuring My Network TV prime time as late night programming to include hits such as The Walking Dead and The Mentalist. WNTZ-TV FOX 48 is also the primary place to find the New Orleans Saints!
