L&L BROADCASTING has acquired YMF MEDIA's six-station cluster in JACKSON, MS. The stations are Urban AC WKXI, Urban WJMI, Sports WRKS, WJNT-A, Gospel WOAD-A and Oldies WJQS-A.
"The YMF Media cluster in JACKSON will be a great addition to our MISSISSIPPI footprint," ALPHA BROADCASTING/L&L BROADCASTING Chairman LARRY WILSON said. "As the state capital, JACKSON is an energetic and thriving city with endless opportunities for growth. We’re excited to bring these heritage stations into the L&L family. "
"We are proud of our 13-year relationship with these great stations and committed staff," YMF MEDIA Pres./COO CHARLES M. WARFIELD, JR. said. "Under the leadership of L & L BROADCASTING, the stations will continue their outstanding service to JACKSON and its communities."
L&L, an adjunct company to WILSON's APLHA BROADCASTING, has quietly been adding stations to its portfolio. In MAY, 2013, it closed on TRIAD clusters in FARGO, ND (NET NEWS, 5/1), and a bevy of stations in ILLINOIS, NORTH DAKOTA, WEST VIRGINIA, MISSISSIPPI and SOUTH CAROLINA (NET NEWS, 12/3/12).
