Family Stations spins out of Bismarck


SoldFor quite a while, non-profit Family Stations was in the news due to its founder, the late serial apocalypse predictor Harold Camping. This time, it’s simply selling a North Dakota FM to another religious noncom.

The station is KBFR-FM. It’s a Class A on 91.7 MHz with 780 W @ 348’. It provides excellent service to Bismarck proper and is licensed to that community.

The buyer is Real Presence Radio, headed by Edward E. Schmitz and Steve Loegering.

Family Stations President Thomas Evans signed off on the deal for the seller.

The price: $50K cash.

Real Presence Radio owns four other North Dakota FMs and has CP for a fifth.
