Religious broadcaster reaches out for Texas FM


L.C. Orrick Outreach Inc., headed by Robert H. Luton, is getting KCPC-FM Sealy TX, a town to the west of Houston, from Houston Christian Broadcasters Inc., headed by Bruce Munsterman. The Class A 90.7 MHz facility will replace an LPFM that Orrick is in the process of selling.

The price for KCPC will be $65K cash. HCB won the license in a comparative hearing back in March 2007, and says that price is less than it has spent getting the station up and running. It claimed $55,943 in equipment and installation costs, $6,350 for engineering and $10,575 in legal fees, totally $72,868.

Orrick is selling a low power FM station, KQLC-LP Brookshire TX, to Body of Christ Church of Katy for $6,756.43, a deal that dates to March 2010. It retains the rights to the KQLC calls.
