Another state for Weinberg


You can add New Mexico to the map for the growing footprint of Fred Weinberg’s growing Las Vegas-based radio group. KRSY-AM & FM and KNMZ-FM Alamogordo have been LMA’d with an option to buy from WP Broadcasting by Weinberg’s Ely Radio LLC, which already has stations in Nevada and Colorado. Weinberg tells us the deal came about because his new airplane put Alamogordo within a reasonable flight from home base. WP Broadcasting is related to WP Media Lending, run by Dave Westburg and Jim Penney. With the LMA taking effect, veteran broadcaster Phil Runnels has retired. Les Henke has been promoted to General Manager from General Sales Manager.
