New Owner For Chicago’s Clubsteppin 95.1
Tracey V. Bell’s Integrated Brand Marketing Company has purchased 95.1 W236CF Chicago and 95.1 W236CG Bolingbrook from John Bridge’s Windy City Broadcasting for $3.5 million.
With the purchase of the two translators, Bell has also taken over operations of R&B Oldies “Clubstepping 95.1” from founder Lamont Watts. Watts version of the programming continues on as a webcaster at Clubsteppin.com, where it originated in 2005.
All of the station’s programming and staff continues with the change in management although Reach Media’s Tom Joyner Show is temporarily off in mornings until new contracts are finalized.
The translators are fed by SBS’s 107.9 WLEY-HD2 Aurora. Watts’ Future Vision Entertainment began operating the two translators last August but never exercised his option to purchase the stations.
