KPRO Signs-Off Following Land Sale
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.
