EMF buys in W. Kentucky


The town of Ledbetter KY is the latest venue for voracious FM acquirer Educational Media Foundation. It’s getting a noncommercial station there from Heartland Ministries.

The town is just east of Paducah KY, which although not part of the Arbitron universe does receive television ratings from Nielsen and radio ratings from Eastlan.

The station is WHMR-FM, squarely in the reserved band at 90.1 MHz, a Class A with 1 kw @ 328’.
EMF will pay Heartland $140K cash for the station.

Heartland is headed by Darrell Gibson; EMF by Mike Novak.
