Quincy CA FM station to pair up with local AM


KHGQ-FM is getting a new owner, according to documents filed with the FCC. Experienced owners will take the station, restore it to operation and pair it up with an AM station in the same town.

The buyer is Sierra Radio Inc., a partnership between Gary Katz, Jerrie Rindahl-Katz and Tom F. Huth. It’s getting the Quincy CA station from Hilltop Church, headed by Vernon Miller.

The price is $50K cash.

Miller is getting an STA to keep the station silent, a proposition agreed to by the buyer. Miller will also need to apply to the FCC to convert the license from non-profit to commercial status.

Quincy is in unrated territory east of Chico CA in the northern, inland portion of California. Huth owns KPCO-AM there, which will form a standard combo with KHGQ when it returns to service.
