Ed Stolz is widely known in the radio industry as the man who continues to seek to negate the sale of a radio station in Sacramento to Entercom Communications consummated nearly 25 years ago.

In July 2018, a new legal struggle surfaced, as Stolz was ordered by a federal court to pay ASCAP license fees neglected for several years at three of his four radio stations. That never happened, with the trio of FMs heading into receivership, Stolz ordered to jail for failing to pay a cent to ASCAP, and Stolz in late September attempting a “Hail Mary” to stave off the stations’ sale.

It didn’t work. A Form 314 filing transferring the stations to a non-secular broadcast ministry has been made with the Commission.
