Armada adds eight in Kansas


Fast-growing Armada Media has a deal to buy eight stations in Western Kansas from the family of the late Bob Ingstad for 9.5 million. Brokers Jody McCoy and Tom McKinley say the deal includes KBUF-AM Holcomb, KKJQ-FM Garden City, KSKZ-FM Copeland, KSSA-FM Ingalls, KSKL-FM Scott City, KWKR-FM Leoti, KULY-AM Ulysses, and KFXX-FM Hugoton. Darn it all, we weren’t able to use the headline "Armada sails into Kansas," since the company, with Jim Coursolle as Chairman and Terry Shockley as CEO, already owns KFNF-FM Oberlin, KS.
