    University of North Carolina technically owns 12 stations as well as an extensive network of translators. IIRC the stations are all licensed to the UNC Board of Governors.

    Also, WTVI/Charlotte (the state's only non-UNC noncom) is owned by Central Piedmont Community College.

    Can't forget KAMU in College Station, TX - Texas A&M University.

    I have fond memories working there while in college.

    I went to University of Missouri and interned/worked at KOMU back in the day. I gained an incredible amount of experience working at a commercial station in college. Missouri students are incredibly fortunate to have that opportunity.

    KOMU also ran the cable only WB 100+ station at the time, which I now believe is a CW station on one of their digital subchannels.

    For a time, Boston University owned a commercial TV station, WABU-68 (now WBPX).

    The statewide New Hampshire public television network is owned by the University of New Hampshire, but plans have begun that will spin-off NHPTV into a private-sector nonprofit organization, structured much like Boston's WGBH-2/WGBX-44.

    At one time, the statewide PTV networks in Vermont and Maine were owned by the Universities of Vermont and Maine, respectively, but have since been spun-off into private-sector nonprofits.

    Actually, only KUON in Lincoln is owned by the University of Nebraska. The remaining stations are licensed by Nebraska Educational Television Commission.
