Alpha Media Strikes Again


SoldThis time, Larry Wilson’s outfit is buying stations in Salt Lake City and Evanston WY. The seller is Adelante Media Group, which will part with an AM and two FMs.

The stations are KTUB-AM and KDUT-FM in the Utah market, and KBMG-FM in Evanston. An LMA will kick in before the week is out.
Wilson noted that Mary Lee Robinson will stay on to run the Salt Lake City stations.

“We are so pleased to join forces with Mary Lee Robinson and her fine staff who deliver beautiful entertainment to the Latino community of Salt Lake City,” he said.

Adelante Media Group CEO Jay Meyers added, “Mary Lee Robinson and her team have built a brilliant operation in Salt Lake City poised for spectacular growth in the coming years, truly the Crown Jewel of Adelante’s holdings. As we go through our liquidation phase, I’m so very pleased to be doing a deal for our Salt Lake stations with Larry Wilson, Bob Proffitt and the Alpha crew. Not only are they fantastic broadcasters, but also great friends.”

The value of the deal was not released.
