Mid-America adds to its chain


David C. Keister’s Mid-America Radio of Logansport-Peru is taking a regional radio station cluster in an unrated portion of Indiana north of Indianapolis from six to eight stations. It’s picking up WSAL-AM/WLHM-FM in Logansport from Jack Jenkins’ Logansport Radio Corporation. According to broker Ed Henson of Henson Media, the price is 1.1M, which has a 240K non-compete built in. The resulting eight station cluster forms three distinct radio markets under the old contour definition. WSAL-AM is in all three, along with WIOU-AM Kokomo and WMYK-FM Peru. Also in the first are WLHM-FM, WARU-AM Peru and WHZR-FM Royal Center. The second cluster includes the three universal stations, WARU-AM and  WARU-FM Roann. The third cluster is comprised of the three universals and WZWZ-FM Kokomo.
