Alpha Sells Five In Kansas

1150 KSAL FM 104.9 KSAL-FM Y93.7 KYEZ Alpha Media Rocking M Radio SalinaAlpha Media has announced it has agreed to sell five of its stations in Salina KS to Rocking M Media for an undisclosed amount.

Rocking M will acquire Country “Y93.7” KYEZ Salina, AC “Sunny 102.5” KBLS North Fort Riley, Classic Hits “FM 104.9” KSAL-FM Salina, News/Talk 1150 KSAL Salina, and Standards 1560 KABI Abilene. A sixth Salina market station, “Oldies 98.5” KSAJ-FM Abilene holds a Construction Permit to relocate to the Topeka market and will be retained by Alpha Media.

Rocking M already owns three stations in the Salina market: CHR “92.7 The New Zoo” KZUH Minneapolis, Rock “95.5 The Rock” KVOB Lindsborg, and Country “Real Country 101.7” KDJM Lindsborg. As that will give Rocking M eight stations in the Salina-Manhattan market, one will likely need to be divested. 102.5 KBLS is missing from Rocking M’s updated station list.

Alpha Media LLC and Rocking M Media, LLC announced Thursday their formal filing with the Federal Communications Commission to transfer five of Alpha Media’s radio stations in Salina, Abilene and Manhattan Kansas to Rocking M Media.

The radio stations to be transferred are; KSAL-AM 1150; KSAL-FM 104.9; KABI-AM 1560; KYEZ-FM 93.7 and KBLS-FM 102.5.

Alpha Media CEO/President, Bob Proffitt commented on the announcement, “We’re happy for our employees in Salina to be joining such a great company. Rocking M Media is a strong force in Kansas radio and media.”

Rocking M Media President, Christopher Miller added, “RMM is so very excited to add the Alpha Media staff and stations to our family. They will be a great addition and will be instrumental in helping RMM promote the businesses and communities in and around our Salina and Abilene markets.”
