Station Sales Oklahoma City based Perry Broadcasting is expanding to Fayetteville AR via a pair of acquisitions. Perry will acquire 1340 KFMD Bethel Heights from Hog Radio for $350,000 and 105.3 K287AN Fayetteville from Don Campbell for $50,000. The two stations currently air a Christian AC format as “105.3 The Voice” but will likely flip to Perry’s specialty within the Urban realm.
