Walzel waltzes into three-beat buy


It’s not often you can get the same basic call letters on three stations without also acquiring an FCC waiver, but Curt Walzel’s Telecom Supply Inc. is doing just that with the acquisition of a Livingston TX trio from the Estate of Harold Haley, being handled by Administrator Peggy Sue Marsh. Walzel is setting KETX AM, FM and LPTV — and since the television portion of the transaction does not involve a full-power facility, it does not activate the waiver requirement. According to Sandi Bergman of MyMediaBroker.com, the price is 1.4M. Livingston is located in the southeast portion of Texas well to the north of Houston.
