West Palm AM changing hands


A standalone AM talker in the West Palm Beach market is headed for a new owner. Buyer Palm Beach Radio Group has no other stations in its portfolio, so WPBR-AM will remain a standalone.

The seller is Omni-Lingual Broadcasting Corporation, headed by Emil Antonoff.

The buyer is headed by Samuel Rogatinsky.

PBRG will pay $462,500 cash for the station, a Class C on 1340 kHz with 810 W-U, ND. It’s licensed to Lantana FL and has good coverage of the center of the West Palm Beach market.
