StarCall buys in Uvalde


Randi Markowitz and her StarCall Broadcasting are paying $1.2M to enter the unrated Uvalde TX market with a trio of stations coming from Rhattigan Broadcasting. The cash deal is for KVOU AM-FM and KUVA-FM. The deal requires the FCC to recognize StarCall as an eligible entity, qualified to receive a grandfathered cluster intact. It seems that at one time six stations were considered part of the Uvalde market; one lost that qualification, taking these three stations from an allowable 50% to an oversized 60%.
