Georgia ‘Ridge’ Captured By A CCM Giant


To the north of Rome, Georgia, is the city of Summerville and, right next to it, the city of Trion. Here, a Class A FM has been serving this portion of the Peachtree State with Classic Rock as “The Ridge.”

Soon, that will end, as “Jesus Is Just Alright” and the Doors’ “The End” could make for a perfect transition to what’s about to land on this station’s signal.

In a deal valued at $200,000, TTA Broadcasting is parting ways with WATG-FM 95.7 “The Ridge.”

A $10,000 deposit has already been paid for by the buyer, Educational Media Foundation.

The deal was made possible with the assistance of Eddie Esserman of Media Services Group, who represented TTA in the transaction.

Serving as legal counsel for EMF is Paige Fronabarger of Wilkinson Barker Knauer.

TTA’s counsel in the sale of WATG is Dennis J. Kelly, Esq.

The transaction includes WATG’s lease for its transmitter site at Taylor’s Ridge, Mack White Gap in Chattooga County, Ga.
