'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

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.
