    KOMU is still owned by the University of Missouri, though WNDU was sold a few years back to Gray Television.

    I believe the University of Iowa formerly owned WOI-TV in Ames, the ABC affiliate now owned by Citadel; and Loyola University previously owned WWL-TV in New Orleans (which Belo now owns today).

    Iowa State University owned WOI. Some have suggested that University of Iowa loyalists were behind the forced sale of WOI by the State Board of Regents. Another bit of trivia...the funding for WOI-TV came out of a slush fund attached to uranium enriching for the Manhattan project in WWII.
