ALL ACCESS has been hearing strong rumors that SUMMITMEDIA has stepped in as the winner of the bidding for SOUTH CENTRAL COMMUNICATIONS after a last-minute bow-out by LARRY WILSON's L&L BROADCASTING.
SUMMITMEDIA -- or whoever gets SOUTH CENTRAL -- would be acquiring nine stations and an LMA in three markets, including Classic Rock WIMZ, AC WJXB (B97.5) and Active Rock WVRX (95.7 THE X)/KNOXVILLE, Adult Hits WCJK (96.3 JACK FM) and AC WJXA (MIX 92.9)/NASHVILLE, and Top 40 WSTO (HOT 96), Country WKFW (93.5 THE WOLF), AC WIKY and Classic Rock WABX/EVANSVILLE, plus the LMA for Adult Hits WEJK (107.1 JACK FM)/EVANSVILLE.
An official announcement on a deal is expected soon.
