Second AM for Big Easy operators


MCDJ LLC, an ownership group including W. Christopher Beary, Mary Latter, Joseph A. Kunstler and David Rubin, is reaching into the northern fringes of the New Orleans market to take WASO-AM out of receivership. The station, licensed to Covington LA about 40 miles north of town, is coming from Claude C. Lightfoot, receiver for America First Communications. Lightfoot has been in charge of the station since 6/17/05. All four of the principals of MCDJ have a stake in Northshore Radio LLC (Beary has 22%, the others each hold 6% apiece for a 40% total), licensee of WGSO-AM. The price for WASO is 578,100.
