Craft Broadcasting, LLC, was formed in 2010 to serve as a consulting firm in the acquisition and sales of radio and TV stations. The Florida based corporation first acquired TV Channel 8, licensed to Springfield, Missouri and immediately transitioned the facility from analog to digital channel 21. Mike Craft, with over 40 years of broadcasting and media experience, then began negotiating with a myriad of available networks to develop a diverse, family friendly programming schedule to serve Springfield, Missouri DMA #75 with KRFT-LD TV8.
Mike then engaged in a consulting relationship with MountainPlex Media, LLC in Hinton, WV to acquire and develop a media conglomerate to serve that region. After establishing Springfield programming on Channel 8.1 – 8.6, Mike began commuting between Missouri and West Virginia.
In the spring of 2017 Patricia Craft was appointed Director of Craft Broadcasting, LLC and began to refresh the original mission by launching new networks including LIGHTtv, This TV and Nuestra Vision. Patricia created a new logo for KRFT-LD TV8 and, along with Blane Craft, designed a new website for Craft Broadcasting, LLC.
