Air Augustine has closed on its purchase of Hot AC 105.5 WYRE-FM St. Augustine, FL and has quickly flipped it to Adult Rock “105.5 The Whale“.
The station is promoting “St. Augustine’s Quality Rock From The 70s To Now” and that it will be fully live and local. The ownership group behind Air Augustine is full of prior radio experience. The new ownership group is made up of three people with radio experience. David Mitchell will serve as President of the Company with a 55% share. Mitchell is based in the Charlottesville, VA region where he once owned 107.5 WUMX (Now News/Talk WCHV-FM). Joseph Riley, owner of four stations in the Albany, NY area holds a 30% stake. Former 98.7 KLUV Dallas Program Director Peter Zolnowski has 15% of the company.
