SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Blaze arena football team has a new owner.

Former owner Kristin Murdock sold her majority share of the franchise to Salt Lake City businesswoman Kim Brown, the team said Wednesday.

Murdock took over the team in 2010 and took them from being one of the worst teams in the league to one of the top contenders for the ArenaBowl Championship game last year.

Brown and her marketing company Kim Brown & Associations have grown to be one of the top media companies in Salt Lake City.

Brown joins Logan Hunter and Abundant Brands as the majority owners.
