On January 27, 2016, it was announced that the Nexstar Broadcasting Group would buy Media General for $4.6 billion. KASA and KRQE will become part of "Nexstar Media Group." As KASA and KRQE were both ranked among the top four stations in the market during the November 2015 sweeps, Nexstar elected to divest one of the two stations to comply with the FCC duopoly rules; on June 30, 2016, it agreed to sell KASA-TV to Ramar Communications, owner of Telemundo affiliate KTEL-CD (channel 15), Movies! affiliate KUPT-LD (channel 16), and MeTV affiliate KRTN-LD (channel 33), for $2.5 million. Ramar intends to make KASA-TV a Telemundo affiliate, and operate its three existing full-power stations in the market — KRTN-TV (channel 33) in Durango, Colorado, KTEL-TV (channel 25) in Carlsbad, and KUPT (channel 29) in Hobbs — as satellites of KASA; it will not acquire KASA's Fox affiliation. KRQE will pick up the Fox network affiliation on channel 13.2.
