Kaufman Broadcast Sells Division To Klance Unlimited
Kaufman Broadcast announced that it has entered into an agreement to sell its crewing business to Klance Unlimited of Pacific, Mo. The agreement will benefit dozens of television technicians who produce Cardinals baseball, Blues hockey and other sports broadcasts in the St. Louis metropolitan area.
“Klance can provide additional employment opportunities in the entertainment industry and for corporate events,” said Bill Kaufman, President of Kaufman Broadcast. “Our business has changed, and it was simply the right time to make this move. We can focus more effectively on our core business of HD video production, transmission and consulting.”
Kaufman’s crew coordinator, Tony Villasana, will move to Klance Unlimited, as part of the sale.
“It was vital that we provide our clients with a seamless transition,” Kaufman said. “Tony is a seasoned pro who has managed employees in the broadcast industry for more than a quarter century. We’re sad to see him go, but know this is an incredible opportunity for him and Klance.”
Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
