SOUTHERN VERMONT COLLEGE has found a buyer for its Talk WBTN-A/BENNINGTON, VT. The BENNINGTON BANNER reports that SHIRES MEDIA PARTNERSHIP, a local non-profit group formed to keep local programming on the station, is buying the station for $100,000.
The college's trustees voted in FEBRUARY to sell or shut the station after losing about $450,000 on the commercial operation since acquiring the station by donation in 2002.
