OPP, how can I explain it
I’ll take you frame by frame it
Who knew that there was a town in Alabama due west of Fort Rucker and Enterprise, within the Dothan DMA, called Opp?
Here, a Class A FM that happens to share its call sign with a television station in Miami is trading hands.
It’s the home of GM and morning host Harry Phillips — at least for now.
That’s because Classic Country WAMI-FM 102.3 in Opp, Ala., is being sold by The Opp Broadcasting Co.
The buyer is Covington Broadcasting, the Robert Boothe-led licensee.
A purchase price of $200,000 was agreed on, and a 10% deposit has been placed in escrow. It is being hold by agent Robert Breedlove.
The deal marks the first for Covington. However, Boothe is employed as GM at WOPP-AM 1290.
WOPP-AM offers a broad mix of Country music, and the deal suggests operations may become linked.
WAMI-FM is in no way connected to WAMI-DT 69 in Miami, the UniMás O&O TV station owned by Univision.
