Geos picks up second AM in Wilkes Barre-Scranton


Geos Communications already owns WGMF-AM Tunkhannock PA in the sprawling Wilkes Barre-Scranton PA market. Now it has a unique cash deal to pick up a second station, WNAK-AM in Nanticoke PA.

The seller is Bold Gold Media Group LP, headed by Vince Benedetto.

Geos is headed by three principals: Kevin M. Fitzgerald, Benjamin P. Smith and Betty S. Curtin.

The price of the station will be $128,659, an amount which will be paid in ten installments by the end of the year. In fact, $5K was already put down in March. Seven of the monthly payments will be for $2,572, and they will be supplemented by two big ones: a $52,000 balloon due in July and a $53,655 balloon in December.

An LMA for the station began 4/1/10.
