Hal Kneller’s Heartland Media signed-off Country “106.9 The Bull” WZZS Zolfo Springs, FL on Wednesday following the closing of its sale to Tomas Martinez and Mercedes Soler’s Solmart Media.
WZZS’s website features a slideshow tribute to its 18 year run with the Country format under Kneller’s ownership.
Solmart purchased WZZS and sister Regional Mexican “La Zeta 105.3” WZSP Nocatee/Port Charlotte earlier this year for $469,000. If Solmart is successful within the next five years to relocate WZZS into the nearby Sarasota/Bradenton market, Heartland will receive an additional $225,000. Martinez is currently VP/GM of “Radio Caracol” 1260 WSUA Miami. His wife Soler is an Anchor for CNN Español.
