Salem spins out of Youngstown


The station, WHKZ-AM, is actually in Youngstown’s little sister city, Warren OH. Top Religious radio group Salem Communications is sending it into the noncommercial realm via a deal with Pentecostal Temple Development Corporation. Headed by Rev. Loran E. Mann, it is acquiring the station for 550K, according to broker Jamie Rasner of John Pierce & Co., who handled the transaction.. It will mark the second location for Pentecostal, and the second time it has bought from Salem — it already owns WGBN-AM, just outside of Pittsburgh, the market just to the south and east of Youngstown-Warren.
