On March 29, a Manhattan, Kansas-based entity described by RBR+TVBR in an October 2016 two-part series as “not a radio company” signed off on a deal that would have transferred six full-power stations and two FM translators to another Kansas-based operation.
After several requests by the intended buyer to delay closing, the seller’s managing member — Monte Miller — had enough.
“I took the stations off today,” he said Monday afternoon in an exclusive interview with RBR+TVBR confirming that the roughly $6.2 million sale of the Wichita market stations by Rocking M Media is likely off.
On Tuesday, the company that planned to buy the stations fired back by assailing Rocking M for its actions, providing its own take on what transpired.
