Bonneville spins surplus AM


Having moved its News/Talk programming to FM and consolidated its Sports/Talk programming on a powerful AM signal, KTAR, in Phoenix, Bonneville was left with an AM it really didn't need. The 860 kHz signal, with 1kw of power day and night and carrying the sports-centric calls KMVP, is now being sold to AIM Broadcasting via a deal put together by the brokers at Kalil & Co. AIM is owned by veteran broadcaster John Douglas. Financial details were not immediately revealed.
