CP buy will upgrade Bryan TX radio cluster


You don’t see many radio clusters like this one – four AMs and only one FM – but that’s what Bryan Broadcasting Corporation has to work with in the Bryan-College Station TX Arbitron market. But a newly-filed deal will soon add a baby FM station to the mix.

The station is KKLB-FM CP Kurten TX. It had been licensed to Madisonville TX, a location from which the market would have been out of reach, but the Kurten city of license puts it within the contour confines of KKLB’s sisters-to-be.

The seller is Southwest Radio Broadcasting Ltd., headed by Robert Clint Crawford.

According to broker Bill Whitley of Media Services Group, the price will be $750K cash.

The buyer is headed by William R. Hicks and Ben D. Downs.

According to the applications, KKLB is already rebroadcasting the buyer’s KAGC-AM Bryan.
KWBC-AM Navosta is also part of the cluster, and checking in from College Station are KNDE-FM, KZNE-AM and WTAW-AM.

KKLB is licensed as a Class A on 107.7 MHz with 2.4 kW @ 390’.
