COMPASS RADIO has announced that it has sold Triple A KPRI/SAN DIEGO to EDUCATIONAL MEDIA FOUNDATION (EMF) headquartered. EMF operates radio networks specializing in AC Christian music. The transaction requires FCC approval and is expected to close in mid-JANUARY, yet EMF will be taking over programming today with the K-LOVE format.
“This is a step we take with very mixed emotions," COMPASS Pres./Co-owner JONATHAN SCHWARTZ said. "We have loved the opportunity to serve SAN DIEGO for the last two decades, and we are grateful to our staff, listeners, advertisers, and the SAN DIEGO community.”
Added Co-owner/CEO ROBERT JOHN HUGHES: “KPRI has been a true labor of love. All I can say is: I thank each and every one who has helped us create and sustain a truly amazing radio station.”
HUGHES will be posting a farewell video on the station website this afternoon.
