Forever Acquires WYCR/WHVR York

Forever Media continues its expansion southward and eastward in Pennsylvania with the acquisition of Classic Hits “98.5 The Peak” WYCR York-Hanover and Classic Country “Real Country 1280” WHVR Hanover from Radio Hanover. Forever will pay $2.6 million for the pair and enter into a $400,000 contract for a non-compete and consulting. All of the employees of the stations will be terminated upon closing of the deal, but are to be offered at-will employment wit Forever. WHVR and WYCR will create a cluster with Forever’s recently acquired “Great Country 107.7” WGTY and Sports “ESPN 1320” WGET Gettysburg. The pending acquisition of WYCR/WHVR was first reported last week by Northeast Radio Watch.
