The buyer is Omni Broadcasting LLC, owned by Roy Hale Jr., James F. Hale and Jennifer F. Hale.
The price is $106K cash, with almost all of it applied to the station’s license — $98.6K to be exact. Only $7.4K is said to be attributable to tangible personal property.
The call letters are not included in the deal – the seller stipulates that new calls will be ready to go by closing.
The station is a Class B on 1480 kHz with 5 kW-D, 4.4 kW-N, DAN. It uses a News-Talk format.
Dittman sold WABB-FM in a deal filed with the FCC 2/21/12. The buyer, noncommercial Educational Media Foundation, paid $3.1M for it.
The calls were changed to WLVM-FM, and the station was swapped to Cumulus Media in a 7/10/12 deal in exchange for WRQQ-FM, serving the Nashville market. EMF also is getting WDLT-FM in the Mobile market in that agreement, paying $1.6M for it. The Cumulus/EMF dealings did not include call letters or formats, which are to remain with the transferor in all cases.
