Salem Acquires Disney Properties In Atlanta & Pittsburgh
Salem Media is adding two more properties from Radio Disney’s portfolio.
Salem’s South Texas Broadcasting subsidiary will pay $2.75 million for 590 WDWD Atlanta. The purchase gives Salem a sixth station in the Atlanta market joining Christian AC “104.7 The Fish” WFSH-FM Athens, Conservative Talk “920 The Answer” WGKA Atlanta, Christian Preaching simulcast “Faith Talk 970” WNIV Atlanta/1400 WLTA Alpharetta and Business Talk “Biz 1190” WAFS Atlanta.
In Pittsburgh, Salem’s Pennsylvania Media Associates adds 1250 WDDZ Pittsburgh for $1 million. WDDZ will become Salem’s third station in the market joining Christian Preaching combo 730 WPIT and 101.5 WORD-FM Pittsburgh.
Salem has been the busiest partner in Radio Disney’s divestitures. Salem paid $1.3 million for 990 WDYZ Orlando in December and acquired stations in Little Rock and San Antonio in a previous sell-off.
