Hutton keeps on striking again


Hutton Broadcasting, headed by husband and wife team Edward B. and Georgie S., is proving to be the energizer bunny of Santa Fe. It started with KVSF-AM and KQBA-FM. Then we heard about the acquisition of KWRP-FM from James S. Bumpous for 700K, and just last week, the acquisition of KBLU-FM from Blu Media for 450K.

Now, local news outlet Free New Mexican is reporting yet another deal, this time for KBAC-FM. The seller in this case will be Educational Media Foundation. EMF just recently acquired the station itself from Clear Channel, along with another Santa Fe station, KSFQ-FM. The two stations together cost EMF 1.5M; no word yet on the spin-off price for KBAC-FM.
