Pocahontas sells out of Welch


West Virginia-Virginia Holding Co. is getting WELC AM & FM in Welch VA from Sam Sidote’s Pocahontas Broadcasting Company. WV-VHC is headed by Bob Spencer and Rick Lambert. They’ll pay 300K for the combo and match it up with WPMW-FM Mullens WV. The stations are located in the very southern tip of West Virginia not far from the Virginia border. The nearest Arbitron market to Welch is Bluefield WV, about 20 miles to the east.
