Big Cat relinquishes FM CP


There will be a new combo in northwestern Nebraska once Chadrad Communications Inc., headed by Kathleen R. Brown, puts the finishing touches on the brand new FM station it is buying from Carlton L. Fitch’s Big Cat Broadcasting LLC.

The station will be licensed to Hay Springs NE. According to broker Jody McCoy of Media Services Group, the price will be $85K cash.

The CP is for a Class C1 almost all the way into the upper reaches of the FM dial at 107.7 MHz. It’ll have 100 kw @ 492’.

Chadrad already owns KCSR-AM Chadron NE, a town about 23 miles west of Hay Spring on Rt. 20. Both stations are in ratings-free territory.
