During its fourth quarter earnings call yesterday Salem Media CEO Ed Atsinger revealed his company’s plans for the three stations it is in the process of acquiring from Radio Disney. 1250 WDDZ Pittsburgh will join the group of Conservative Talk stations branded as “The Answer“. 990 WDYZ Orlando will become Salem’s eight Spanish Christian “Radio Luz” station. In Atlanta Salem will move its Christian Preaching “Faith Talk” from 970 WNIV/1400 WLTA to the stronger 590 WDWD with an undisclosed format going to 970/1400.
The sell-off of the Radio Disney stations continues as Salem Communications adds a fourth AM in Orlando. Salem’s Pennsylvania Media Associates license holding company will pay Disney $1.3 million for 990 WDYZ Orlando. The acquisition will join Salem’s trio of Conservative Talk “660 The Answer” WORL, Christian Preaching 950 WTLN, and Business Talk 1520 WBZW in the Orlando market. WDYZ operates with 50kW daytime and 10kW nights.
