A Local Radio Monopoly Brings a Brand Resurrection


On May 15, a Hays, Kan.-based broadcast company led by Kurt David agreed to pay $160,000 for an AM with an FM translator in St. Joseph, Mo.

Now, the deal has successfully closed — giving Eagle Communications an audio media monopoly in the city.

And, with the sale of this AM/FM translator combo, a very familiar Kansas City radio brand has been resurrected.
