Skinner adds in Tonopah


Morgan Skinner’s Legacy Communications is getting a second station and its first FM station in Tonopah NV via the acquisition of KHWK-FM from Donald W. Kaminski. Skinner noted that the station fires off 6 kw worth of power from Mt. Oddie, but did not note the pricetag. The station will join KTNP-AM, which Legacy bought for 15K in a deal filed last January. Tonopah is roughly between Reno and Las Vegas — we would note that there is a LOT of between between those two cities.

RBR observation: We don’t yet know the price of Skinner’s deal, but a prior sale to noncommercial Hilltop Church was filed 5/31/05 and apparently never made it to the finish line. According to documents filed with the FCC, the Hilltop contract stipulated a 325K price.
