KIOT riot in Albuquerque


Three Univision FMs and a fourth that has been placed in a Trust are going to Allen B. Shaw’s Centennial Broadcasting. All four are part of the Albuquerque NM market, with two also providing service to nearby Santa Fe. According to brokerage Kalil & Co., which handled the deal, the price is 24M. The Univision Albuquerque Trust, run by Bob Woodward, is transferring KIOT-FM Los Lunas, with the other three coming direct from Univision. They include KJFA-FM Albuqueque, and — serving both Albuquerque and their city of license of Santa Fe — KKSS-FM and KJFA-FM. With a pending deal to acquire stations in two small Virginia markets, Fredericksburg and Winchester, Shaw is on the threshold of group ownership.
