Trustee sells border AM from Border portfolio


As Trustee of Border Media Business Trust, Larry Patrick is divesting one of the AMs from the Border Media group. And by acquiring KSOX-AM, a local religious group which already holds a non-commercial FM CP will be able to get on the air faster in the McAllen-Brownsville-Harlingen, TX market.

Hector Carrizales is President of Vision Hispana Incorporated Internacional, a newly formed non-profit entity which is paying $250,000 cash to acquire KSOX, which has been airing a Sports format on 1240 kHz, with 520 watts day/850 watts night. Carrizales also heads Iglesia Pentecostal Unida of McAllen Inc., which already holds a CP for KVHI-FM, a Class A which will operated in the reserved non-commercial band at 88.7 MHz

Both KSOX-AM and KVHI-FM are licensed to Raymondville, TX, located north of Harlingen. So, Carrizales and his associates will soon have title to a well-formed combo.

The sale of KSOX was brokered by Greg Guy of Patrick Communications.
