EMF purchases

Post by contracteng » Fri Jul 01, 2022 7:49 pm

Educational Media Foundation made a pair of acquisitions this week. Just south of Louisville, EMF will purchase 99.3 WKMO Lebanon Junction KY from Commonwealth Broadcasting for $410,000. The WKMO IP and Classic Country format will remain with Commonwealth where it has immediately relocated to the former AC “B101.5” WVKB Vine Grove, while 99.3 has taken on new WLEZ calls.

EMF is also purchasing Wheeler Broadcasting’s Oldies “Sunny-FM” 98.5 KEYG-FM Grand Coulee WA for $150,000.

In August 2019, EMF and iHeartMedia announced a swap of thirteen translators with one on each side to be held for a later closing. That time has come as EMF has filed to swap 103.9 W280DO Lexington KY to iHeart for 98.3 W252CM Nashville TN. Both translators are currently operated by iHeartMedia like all of the other translators in the original deal.
