KRXA To Become A Web-Only Station
June 10, 2013 at 5:46 AM (PT)
As ALL ACCESS reported in early MAY (NET NEWS 5/2), KRXA, LLC is selling Talk KRXA-A/CARMEL VALLEY-MONTEREY, CA to EL SEMBRADOR MINISTRIES for $300,000. The buyer will convert the station to non-commercial educational status and will do the same for its Spanish Religion KHPY-A/MORENO VALLEY, CA, of which KRXA will serve as a satellite.
KRXA-A Owner/GM HAL GINSBERG told THE MONTEREY HERALD that the station will survive as a webcaster, "with most of his radio lineup -- nationally syndicated hosts like RANDI RHODES and ED SCHULTZ, and local shows like "The Morning Show," which he hosts weekdays from 6-9a to air exclusively at www.radiomonterey.com.
"I think it was the right time. I wouldn't say I had to do that much soul-searching; I've been exploring this for a while," GINSBERG said. "I had been approached on other occasions with offers to sell, but either the amount being offered wasn't sufficient or I still saw potential for big growth."
