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.
