LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) - A company that provides cable, telecom and internet services in the Lawrence area has been sold.

Officials with WOW announced Friday that the Lawrence system will be acquired by Midco, which provides cable, internet and other services in North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

The Lawrence Journal-World reports (https://bit.ly/2ep1VNU ) WOW operates in several states but Midco is buying only the Lawrence operations.

WOW also owns Channel 6 in Lawrence. Midco officials Tom Simmons says no changes are planned at the station in the short term.

WOW serves more than 30,000 customers in Douglas, Leavenworth and Wyandotte counties.
