Historyedit

Paramount Communications, the then-parent company of Paramount Pictures, formed the Paramount Stations Group after buying out the remaining stake in TVX Broadcast Group that it did not already own This gave the company control of six stations: Fox affiliates KRRT of Kerrville, Texas, WLFL-TV of The Triangle Region of North Carolina, and WTXF-TV of Philadelphia, and independent stations KTXA of Fort Worth, Texas, KTXH of Houston, Texas, and WDCA of Washington, DCcitation needed Shortly thereafter, the group began its expansion with its purchase of then-Detroit Fox affiliate WKBD from Cox Enterprises in 19931

Viacom purchased Paramount in 1993, with the deal closing in March 1994, and thus, several Viacom-owned CBS and NBC stations were added to the PSG fold Shortly afterward Viacom entered into a joint venture with Chris-Craft Industries, which owned several television stations as part of its United Television subsidiary, to launch the United Paramount Network UPN Five of PSG's original six stations, along with several acquisitions such as WSBK-TV in Boston, became charter affiliates of the network when UPN launched in January 1995 PSG sold off two of its original six stations as well; KRRT and WTXF were sold to other companies, with the latter becoming a Fox-owned station To make up for the loss of its Philadelphia-owned station, PSG bought Philadelphia independent station WGBS-TV and renamed it to WPSG-TV, and moved the UPN affiliation there The company eventually divested itself of the CBS and NBC stations it held and purchased more UPN affiliates as the 1990s continued

Airing since 1992 in Sweden and other European countries, 4 of the group's independent stations began in late December 1993 testing Video Games Challenge, interactive via the phone game show produced by Invisible Cities of Los Angeles and Big Band Productions of Sweden2

The endedit

In 2000, PSG bought out Chris-Craft's stake in UPN Shortly thereafter, Chris-Craft exited broadcasting and sold most of its stations to Fox

PSG was folded the next year after Viacom completed its merger with CBS The remaining PSG stations were merged with the CBS owned-and-operated stations to form the Viacom Television Stations Group Today, that group is called the CBS Television Stations Group
