CONNER FAMILY BROADCASTING, INC. is selling Country WRMS-F/BEARDSTOWN, IL to LARRY BOSTWICK's LB SPORTS PRODUCTIONS LLC for $395,000. The buyer also owns Sports WVIL/VIRGINIA, IL and Talk WKXQ (ALL AMERICAN RADIO)/RUSHVILLE, IL in the same market.
In a deal not yet filed with the FCC, CHERRY CREEK RADIO has found a buyer for silent KROP-A/BRAWLEY, CA, with the IMPERIAL VALLEY PRESS reporting that LARDOG PRODUCTIONS LLC will be buying the station and returning it to the air in JULY with a Country format and LOS ANGELES DODGERS baseball. KROP was left behind when sister Top 40 KSIQ (Q96) was moved into the SAN DIEGO market earlier this year.
And COCHISE MEDIA LICENSES LLC is asking the FCC to extend its silent STA to keep KXWY/HUDSON, WY off the air "due to financial considerations." The construction permit was built but the station went silent on AUGUST 5th of last year.
