Salem Acquires Disney Stations In Boston & Dallas
Radio Disney continues its sell-off with the divestment of two more stations to Salem Media.
Salem’s Pennsylvania Media Associates will acquire 1260 WMKI Boston for $500,000, while Inspiration Media of Texas adds 620 KMKI Plano/Dallas for $3 million.
WMKI will becomes Salem’s fourth property in the Boston market joining Christian Preaching “590 The Word” WEZE, “Spirit of Boston” 950 WROL, and Spanish Christian “Radio Luz 1150” WWDJ. The acquisition will lead to questions of whether Salem will bring a Conservative Talk “Answer” to Rush Limbaugh’s need for a new Boston affiliate.
KMKI will be Salem’s sixth property in the Dallas market. The company owns Christian AC 94.9 KLTY, Christian Preaching “100.7 the Word” KWRD, Conservative Talk “660 The Answer” KSKY and Spanish Christian “Radio Luz 1440” KTNO. Salem also operates First Ventures Capital Partners’ Business Talk 1160 KVCE under a Time Brokerage Agreement through at least the end of this year.
