SMITH's BAD GAS BROADCAST, LLC for forgiveness of $1,363,117.61 in debt plus an LMA before closing; the seller will pay the buyer $1,600 per month for three years under a promissory note.

The paper notes, "This is the station’s second run as a Spanish-language outlet, having operated as 'FIESTA 99.7' KANR during SMITH’s ownership."
