Border spins out of Waco


Border Media Partners is trimming its portfolio prior to going into a trust, and has announced its second station sale this week, both in Texas. This time, the exiting station will be KWOW-FM in the Waco market.

The buyer, Waco Entertainment Group, LLC, will pay $1.3M cash for the station, according to brokers associated with the deal. Larry Patrick & Greg Guy of Patrick Communications represented the seller, and Patrick will be running the trust it’s headed for; Todd Fowler of Fowler Media Consulting represented the buyer.

Waco Entertainment is headed by William W. McCutchen III.

BMP has clusters in several Texas markets, but this is its only station in Waco. The group has been running a Mexican format on it.
