Following their purchase of stations from two groups in Fort Wayne, Adams Radio Group has purchased four stations in Northwestern Indiana.
The four stations located just outside the Chicago market in the area around Gary are Classic Rock “XRock 103.9” WXRD Crown Point, Country “Indiana 105.5” WLJE Valparaiso, Hot AC “107.1 The Z” WZVN Lowell, and Oldies 1500 WAKE Valparaiso. The seller is Radio One Communications, a local group run by Leigh Ellis and not the Urban station operator with the similar name. Terms of the sale have yet to be disclosed.
This will become Adams’ third market after Fort Wayne and Las Cruces, NM since returning to radio ownership last year.
