Houston adds in the DC exurbs


WPRZ-AM is located in Warrenton VA, just outside the Washington DC Arbitron market, and its about to join two other similarly-situated AM stations in the portfolio of Metro Radio Inc., a family operation led by radio veteran Bruce Houston. Metro is getting the station from Steve Buchanan’s Praise Communications for 1.1M. It’ll form a cluster with WKCW-AM, also out of Warrenton, and WKDV-AM Manassas VA. According to documents filed with the transfer application, the Manassas station is the only one considered to be part of the Washington market.
