April 11, 2012 at 3:56 PM (PT)
BLACKSTRAP BROADCASTING has decided to put WSNR-A/NEW YORK up for sale. The station currently broadcasts multi-lingual, multi-ethnic programming with a special concentration in Russian-language programming; WSNR-A is purported to be the largest Russian-language radio station, in terms of listeners, broadcasting outside of MOSCOW.
"We plan on holding a controlled auction for the station with a minimum bid price of $16.5 million," BLACKSTRAP Pres. RUSS JONES said. "It is our belief that solidly profitable NYC stations are always in demand especially since they come up for sale so infrequently."
MICHAEL J. BERGNER of BERGNER & CO will handle the sale. Bids will be due JUNE 15th, 2012. JONES also noted that BLACKSTRAP has decided to keep Liberal Talk WWZN-A/BOSTON.
