Michael Dell has emerged as the winning bidder of Seattle-area TV station KFFV TV. The Seattle Times, which first reported the news, notes that an investment company operated by the billionaire founder of Dell Computer won an auction for the station last week.

Founded in 1991, KFFV is broadcast in the Seattle area on channel 44. Its mission is to bring a “multicultural audience the best entertainment and informational programming available using the highest standards in quality, creativity, and social responsibility.”

The station carries programming in Spanish, Mandarin, Cantonese and Korean, with its channels reaching 1.2 million homes in the area.

The Times reports that Dell’s OTA Broadcasting paid $5.05 million for the station, and that Dell’s intentions for the station are unclear. More on the structure of OTA and the bidding for the station from TVNewsCheck.
