The complicated saga of Top 40/Rhythmic KVPW (MY 106.3)/KINGSBURG, CA-FRESNO takes another turn as the station has gone dark after being evicted from a tower owned by EDUCATIONAL MEDIA FOUNDATION. PRO-ACTIVE COMMUNICATIONS, the station's licensee, says that it is procuring an alternate site and expects to return to the air shortly.
EMF filed to take over the license of KVPW in FEBRUARY and claimed that PRO-ACTIVE had defaulted under a letter agreement that gave PRO-ACTIVE a year to pay off a promissory note or sell the station for enough money to cover the note. PRO-ACTIVE had filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy in OCTOBER and resumed control of the station on OCTOBER 1st from GREG MACK's MACKNIFICENT BROADCASTING.
