Bustos Media will pay $1 million for WDDW according to the FCC filing of the acquisition. Original Report 4/22: Adelante Media continues its divestiture as it sends Regional Mexican “104.7 La Gran D” WDDW Sturtevant/Milwaukee, WI to Bustos Media for an undisclosed price. Bustos Media previously owned WDDW prior to the group transferring many of its assets to Adelante in 2010 as the group’s creditors took over the group. Last year Bustos reacquired Adelante’s nine stations in Washington State for $6 million. Adelante has since divested its Boise, Central California, and television holdings leaving it with just 1 AM and 2 FMs in the Salt Lake City market left to divest. Bustos will immediately begin operating WDDW via LMA.
