Galaxy Communications Acquires Pittsfield Cluster
Ed Levine’s Galaxy Communications is expanding to Pittsfield, Massachusetts with the purchase of Bruce Danziger’s commonly owned Berkshire Broadcasting and Gamma Broadcasting.
The combined $3.15 million purchase will give Galaxy II Media, LLC the following stations: Hot AC “Live 95.9” WBEC-FM Pittsfield, Classic Hits “Whoopee 100.1” WUPE-FM North Adams/1110 WUPE Pittsfield/103.3 W277CJ Pittsfield, Full Service AC 860 WSBS Great Barrington, AC 1230 WNAW North Adams, and News/Talk 1420 WBEC Pittsfield. Gamma will also acquire WSBS translator 94.1 W231AK Great Barrington from Northeast Airchecks for $20,000 and transfer that to Galaxy.
Galaxy operates clusters in Syracuse and Utica NY. A 2013 attempt to sell these stations to Greg Reed was later withdrawn.
