Tribune Co. to buy Fox 2 St. Louis

   The number of companies owning St. Louis television stations is about decline again.  

   Chicago-based Tribune Company, which already owns KPLR TV (Channel 11) in St. Louis, is buying 19 stations from Local TV Holdings LLC, including KTVI (Channel 2).  

   The $2.73 billion  deal is set to close by the end of the year, and will make Tribune the largest commercial TV station owner in the country.

    The deal comes just weeks after the parent of KSDK (Channel 5) announced it was buying the parent of KMOV (Channel 4).
