WPAZ Returning To The Air
October 19, 2010 at 4:26 AM (PT)
The POTTSTOWN MERCURY reports that WPAZ-A/POTTSTOWN, silent since DECEMBER, is returning to the air TODAY with a loop heralding the station's relaunch with live programming on SATURDAY (10/23). Longtime owner GREAT SCOTT BROADCASTING is selling the station to CHARLES W LOUGHERY's nonprofit FOUR RIVERS COMMUNITY BROADCASTING for a price GREAT SCOTT CEO MITCHELL SCOTT described as "between $45,000 and $60,000."
The WPAZ PRESERVATION ASSOCIATION, which has been trying to raise money to bring the station back to the air, will lease the station under an LMA to ultimately buy the station from FOUR RIVERS, with LMA payments going towards the purchase price.
