Stone Canyon Media Group, led by former Cherry Creek Media CEO Joe Schwartz, Withers Broadcasting President Dana Withers, and former Emmis Senior Vice President John Beck acquired KSED and its three sister stations in September 2018 from Grenax II Broadcasting.

    Seems the only thing that changed was the moniker…even the logo is still the same.
