Reno deal gets to the closing table


KQLO-AM Reno, NV has gone off the air and been through bankruptcy court, but now things are looking brighter. It’s on the air and has a new owner.

Ricardo Garcia has been programming the station with Hispanic religious programming under an LMA agreement with Bankruptcy Trustee Anabelle Savage and has now closed his $65K purchase of the station.

According to media broker Ray Rosenblum of Pittsburgh, Garcia described himself in court as “a florist and a Hispanic pastor.” Now he can add broadcaster as well.

KQLO operates at 1590 kHz with 5kw daytime and 67 watts at night.
