The FRESNO BEE's RICK BENTLEY is reporting that Talk KFPT-A/FRESNO is being spun off by new owners PEAK BROADCASTING to FAT DAWGS 7 for about $2.5 million. PEAK is acquiring the liberal Talk station from CBS RADIO as part of its deal to buy CBS's FRESNO cluster.
FAT DAWGS 7 owns crosstown KFIG-A (1430 ESPN) and has not indicated what format will be carried by KFPT after it takes over, but the BEE reports that the station will change from its present Talk format.
