In a deal yet to be filed with the FCC, ONE PUTT BROADCASTING (a wholly owned subsidiary of JSA BROADCASTING and FAT DAWGS LLC) is buying Classic Rock KJFX (95.7 THE FOX), Alternative KFRR (NEW ROCK 104.1), and Sports KJZN (105.5 THE GAME)/FRESNO from WILKS BROADCASTING for an undisclosed price that includes an LMA before closing.
ONE PUTT partner JOHN OSTLUND said, “Classic Rock 95.7 and NEW ROCK 104.1 are legendary brands and highly rated radio stations. 105.5FM is pure opportunity that we intend to have serious fun with." His partner CHRIS PACHECO added, “After securing the broadcast rights for FRESNO STATE Athletics and moving ESPN to 50,000-watt 940AM, buying WILKS was among our highest priorities. These additional FM’s will allow us to serve the VALLEY like never before.”
WILKS CEO JEFF WILKS said, “I’ve known CHRIS and JOHN for many years and feel confident in their ability to build on the tradition of community service these great radio stations have.”
