Cox Media Group has put several television and radio stations up for sale, including NBC television affiliates in Johnstown and Steubenville, Ohio, as it aligns its broadcasting operation to focus on larger markets.

Atlanta-based Cox said it wants to sell WJAC in Johnstown and WTOV in Steubenville, along with television stations in El Paso, Texas, and Reno, Nev.

Cox owns WPXI, the NBC affiliate in Pittsburgh, which is not for sale.

It also is looking to unload AM and FM radio stations in Birmingham, Ala.; Greenville, S.C.; Hawaii; Louisville, Ky.; Richmond, Va.; and southern Connecticut.
