CUMULUS is taking back Urban AC KMJK (MAGIC 107.3)/KANSAS CITY back from the VOLT RADIO, LLC spinoff trust. The company tells the FCC that the move-in of noncommercial KWJP/PAOLA, KS to the KANSAS CITY metro increases the number of local stations to 45, thus increasing the number of stations CUMULUS may retain. KMJK was put in the trust for sale as part of the acquisition/merger with CITADEL.
In other filings with the FCC, BLACK UNITED FUND OF NEW YORK, INC. is selling WCKL-A/CATSKILL, NY to FAMILY BROADCASTING AND MEDIA, LLC for $25,000. HARVEST BROADCASTING SERVICES, which programs the station under an LMA, is assuming a debt of $16,000 owed by the seller to engineer DAVID GROTH and $80,000 to former owner CLEAR CHANNEL for late lease payments.
FRIENDS OF CHRISTIAN RADIO, INC. is selling FM translator W241AD/SOUTH BEND to WSBT, INC. (SCHURZ COMMUNICATIONS) for $135,000. The deal is contingent on the closing of the previously-filed swap by which the seller is obtaining W241AD from PROGRESSIVE BROADCASTING SYSTEM, INC. for W266BF/SOUTH BEND, IN plus $20,000. The buyer will use the translator to provide an FM signal for Talk WSBT-A/SOUTH BEND.
EAST CAROLINA RADIO, INC. has applied for a Silent STA for Talk WOBX (NEWSTALK 98.1)/WANCHESE, NC due to flood damage from Hurricane IRENE.
And the Board of Trustees of the UNIVERSITY OF NORTH CAROLINA AT CHAPEL HILL has applied for a Silent STA for FM translator W216BE/BUXTON, NC due to damage from IRENE and the inability to reach the site to repair or replace equipment.
