A high school station in the CINCINNATI suburbs has handed operations over to another noncommercial station, reports the CINCINNATI ENQUIRER's JOHN KIESEWETTER.
The LAKOTA BOARD OF EDUCATION has approved the deal by which LIFESPHERE noncommercial Adult Standards WMKV/READING, OH will manage WLHS (LAKOTA RADIO)/WEST CHESTER, OH for three years and will help LAKOTA EAST HIGH SCHOOL set up an Internet-only station and radio club.
WMKV, operated from the MAPLE KNOLL VILLAGE retirement home, will pay $15,000 over three years -- nothing in the first year, $3,000 for the second year, $12,000 for the third -- under the contract, which is expected to result in WMKV taking over by AUGUST 1st. The school will retain the FCC license.
