UHF Station Goes Up for Sale on eBay

The movie poster for Did you always want to own your own TV station but never had the drive, the ambition or the rich gambling uncle to win one in a poker game for you? Now's your chance.

WMKG Channel 38 of Western Michigan has put its airwaves up for sale to the highest bidder on eBay. The owner has put the station up for sale with an asking price of $550,000, but owner Bud Kelly has said he is willing to go lower if the price is right.

The still-analog network airs a series of live talk shows, church service broadcasts and a weekly live bingo show. But just think, under the right hands, you could transform it into a broadcasting powerhouse that can take on the majors with such imaginative hits as "Strip Solitaire," "Bowling for Burgers" and "Wheel of Fish" assuming you know a bowling alley owner, a chop-socky karate instructor and Billy Barty.

UPDATE: 3:27 a.m. - It seems that eBay has taken down the site for the station. That's eBay, crusher of dreams and destroyer of hope.
