The New York Times Co. said Wednesday that it is acquiring KAUT-TV in Oklahoma City from Viacom Television Stations Group. Terms of the sale were not disclosed.

In purchasing KAUT-TV, a UPN affiliate, New York Times Co. is able to create a duopoly in the Oklahoma City market, where the company already owns NBC affiliate KFOR-TV.

The purchase brings to nine the number of network-affiliated television stations New York Times Co. owns.
