Impact Radio Christian 1570 KPRO Riverside CA has joined the list of AM stations going off the air as its land value exceeds that of the station’s.
The Press-Enterprise reports that the station ceased broadcasting on Friday, August 3. Co-owner Ronnie Olenick told the newspaper, “We tried to sell the station but could not find a buyer for it, and that’s why it’s now dark. But the land the transmitter and studios are on was sold; the developer will be building new houses on the property.”
Unlike other stations KPRO has not turned in its license, but has filed a silent STA to give a possibility for a buyer for the station assets to be found and to diplex with another local AM.
