The closing by NEAL and ELIZABETH ARDMAN's RADIO STATESBORO on the purchase of News-Talk WMCD (FOX NEWS 107.3)/CLAXTON, GA; AC WPMX (EAGLE 102.9), News-Talk WWNS-A (NEWSTALK 1240) and Sports WPTB-A (YAHOO SPORTS RADIO 850)/STATESBORO; Classic Rock WZBX (ROCK 106 FM)/ROCKY FORD, GA; and Country WHKN (BEST COUNTRY 94.9)/MILLEN, GA from GEORGIA EAGLE BROADCASTING for $600,000 will precipitate some format shifts, reports the STATESBORO HERALD.
The paper reports that the new owners plan to flip WZBX to Top 40, and that WWNS and WPTB will swap formats, putting News-Talk on 850 AM and Sports on 1240 AM. In addition, host BUDDY HORN has retired from WMCD and WWNS, and the new owners plan to file to increase the 850 AM signal from 1,000 watts to 50,000 watts.
