'Insane Darrell Wayne' Now Owner Of #1 Station In Lake Tahoe

Southern Californian used to call him "The Insane DARREL WAYNE" when he was heard on KROQ/LOS ANGELES in the '80s ... and his early 2009 purchase of a 2,500-watt LAKE TAHOE radio station with little recent history and few prospects of making money probably only burnished that image.
However, 20 months later DARRELL WAMPLER’s Classic Rock KTHO-FM is doing just fine in the challenging economic market, in an area with huge resort and gaming travel in both summer and winter, as well as a demographics fueled by winter skiing and summer recreation that draws hundreds of thousands of tourists each year. The most recent ARBITRONS show KTHO as #1 in AQH and TSL.
