Former NEXTMEDIA President JERRY LUNDQUIST's CHAPARRAL BROADCASTING is merging into CHRIS DEVINE, BRUCE BUZIL, and SKIP WELLER's BLUE POINT MEDIA, reports the IDAHO MOUNTAIN EXPRESS.
The deal, which resulted from BLUE POINT's attempt to buy CHAPARRAL's stations and ended up bringing LUNDQUIST into the partnership instead, includes CHAPARRAL's three SUN VALLEY, ID stations -- Classic Rock KECH, Alternative KSKI, and Jazz KYZK (SWING AIR 107.5) -- and Hot AC KZJH (KZ-95) and AAA KMTN (THE MOUNTAIN)/JACKSON HOLE, WY as well as Classic Hits KWMY (MY 925 FM, LMAs to CONNOISSEUR)/BILLINGS, MT. No price was disclosed for the merger.
