Trustworthy doubles AMs in Harrisburg


Partners Joseph Green and Bruce Collier are getting a second AM station in Pennsylvania’s centrally-located capital market, Harrisburg-Lebanon-Carlisle. WS2K Radio is making it possible by selling WHYL-AM. The buyers had been brokering the station.

The station is licensed to Carlisle. It is commanding a price tag of $450K. $300K of that will be in cash, and a note will be struck for the remaining $150K. However, the buyers, using licensee name Trustworthy Radio, will get 50% credit for all LMA payments made since the arrangement was initiated 7/18/08.

WS2K is headed by Ira Rosenblatt.

WHYL will double up with WWII-AM Shiremanstown PA. The pairing is not one for night-owls. WWII has 2 kw to work with on its 720 kHz home during the day, but shuts down at sunset, while WHYL, broadcasting from 960 kHz, drops from 5 kw during the day to 22 watts at night.
