Armada grows again


Just days after buying eight stations in Kansas from the Ingstads, Armada Media has a deal to buy four more in Nebraska from NRG Media. Fast-growing Armada, headed by Chairman Jim Coursolle and CEO Terry Shockley, will acquire KODY-AM & KXNP North Platte and KUVR-AM & KMTY-FM Holdrege for 4.5 million bucks. The deal was put together by Kalil & Co. for the seller and American Media Services for the buyer. NRG, headed by Mary Quass, isn’t leaving Nebraska. It will still have stations in Fremont, Grand Island, Kearney, Norfolk, Omaha and Wayne. Armada already has a cluster in McCook, NE.
