Close encounter in Alice


Claro Communications Ltd., headed by Gerald Benavides, is the proud new owner of KOPY AM & FM in Alice TX, according to Media Services Group broker Bill Whitley. Benavides picked up the stations from Alberto Munoz’s Sendero Multimedia for 300K. Although neither station is deemed to be part of an Arbitron metro, they have contour overlap with stations the buyer has in interest in, KROB-AM Robstown TX and KMZZ-FM Bishop TX, both of which are considered to be part of the Corpus Christi market.
