EMF Acquires WCPT-FM
Educational Media Foundation continues its growth in northern Illinois with the purchase of 92.5 WCPT-FM Dekalb IL from Newsweb’s WDEK Inc.
EMF will pay $1.6 million for the station which hits the western suburbs of Chicago and rimshots the Rockford market. It currently simulcasts Liberal Talk 820 WCPT Willow Springs/Chicago. EMF has yet to indicate which of its networks the station will rebroadcast as “K-Love” currently airs in Dekalb on a pair of translators while the 92.5 frequency would work to fill in regional gaps for that network beside 97.9 WCKL Chicago or “Air 1” WJKL Glendale Heights.
