The big deal of the week was Zoo Communications paying Reach Communications $410,000 for 93.5 W228BV Fort Lauderdale FL. W228BV is currently operated by iHeartMedia as Country “93.5 The Bull” but with Zoo operating Dance “Revolution” 93.5 W228BY Miami (owned by iHeart), 104.7 W284CS Miami, 93.5 WZFL Islamorada/Key Largo it will likely join that network.
Ed Stolz’ Playa del Sol Broadcasters is transferring CHR “Hot Hits 97.7” KRCK-FM Mecca/Palm Springs and translators 95.5 K238AK and 98.1 K251BX Palm Desert into co-owned Major Market Radio LLC. The big question is if Stolz changes his mind will he spend years filing objections and legal challenges to it to the FCC like he did in Sacramento following his sale of 106.5 KWOD to Entercom?
MSButtoni sells Conservative Talk “iTalk US” 1230 WEZO Augusta GA to Norma Lewis’ 21st Century Broadcasting for $350,000. Lewis will begin operating the station immediately via a Time Brokerage Agreement.
Phase Two Communications sells AC “Fantasy Radio 101.5” WFTZ Manchester TN to Bowman Broadcasting for $425,000. Bowman owns AC “93.9 The Duck” WDUC Lynchburg TN, which shares signal overlap with WFTZ.
