The FCC signed off on the sale of KSLO-AM and KOGM-FM Opelousas LA, serving the Lafayette LA market, and the dealing parties brought the transaction to a close. The combo joins a cluster that already includes an FM, an LPTV and an LMA with another FM station.
According to broker Ray Rosenblum, the stations commanded a price tag of $700K.
The buyer was Charles Chatelain’s Delta Media Group, who acquired the stations from K.S.L.O. Broadcasting Company Inc., headed by Carroll Smith.
Chatelain already owns KLWB-FM Carencro LA in the area, as well as KXKW-CA Lafayette. According to reports, the low power television station carries the program of another station in the general vicinity, KXKW-FM Simmesport LA along with a visual feed of a local weather map. Both KLWB and KXKW play Classic Hits. Rosenblum noted that KSLO plays 80s and 90s, and KOGM programs country music
