VRE/Frontier Radio Split In Hawaii
March 18, 2010 at 7:04 AM (PT)
MAUI-based VISIONARY RELATED ENTERTAINMENT and CALIFORNIA-based investor/partner FRONTIER RADIO have been granted permission by the FCC to part, reports ERIKA ENGLE in THE HONOLULU STAR BULLETIN, writing "VRE keeps its MAUI stations while FRONTIER RADIO MANAGEMENT INC. has created new companies, OHANA BROADCAST CO. LLC and OHANA BROADCAST CO. II LLC, to be the licensee entities over the stations."
"In essence, all this is, is a redistribution of ownership," said OHANA RVP SKIP SCHMIDT. "Nothing's going to change. None of the stations will change format. None will change names. We will be feeding additional product to them (MOLOKAI and HILO stations) from OAHU ... but KAUAI will stand on its own and continue its own operations. We are not changing any personnel or anything."
