In this week’s issue… Cumulus sells off Keystone State AMs – Remembering Canada’s Allan Slaight – VT’s Messner sets retirement – Cox makes radio cuts
By SCOTT FYBUSH
For four of Cumulus’ stations in central and eastern PENNSYLVANIA, however, there’s a new lease on life on the way as the company prepares to sell them to a smaller but growing broadcaster. Andrea and Pat Cerullo’s Major Keystone LLC operates the “Loud” hip-hop stations via AMs and translators in Allentown and Reading and recently (with the help of Fybush Media) acquired a translator in State College.
Now Major Keystone is about to make some bigger growth. It’s paying $179,500 for WARM (590 Scranton), WTKZ (1320 Allentown), WIOV (1240 Reading, plus a translator at 98.5) and WGLD (1440 Manchester Township-York, plus a new translator at 107.1).
Under Cumulus, the stations had been carrying sports talk – CBS Sports Radio on WARM, WIOV and WGLD, while WTKZ was simulcasting Fox Sports Radio with WEEX (1230 Easton), which stays with Cumulus (and which will continue to be heard on FM via a 94.7 translator in Allentown.)
What will Major Keystone do with its new acquisitions? We’ll be watching…
