SOLD AND FILED WITH FCC:  NORTH/CENTRAL ARIZONA AM:  To every thing, there is a season. For this north/central Arizona AM, the time has come to sell. The Station is being sold due to the death of a previous Buyer which led to that acquisition's non-consummation. The assignment was granted, but before the sale could be consummated, the Buyer unexpectedly died and the Station's operations were left in limbo.

The owner of the Station now wishes to dispose of the Station. The asking price for the Station is $100,000 including the license and equipment, not including the AM tower or the tower site itself; both are leased. It is anticipated that the Station will be taken silent effective May, 2016.

Under separate agreement, the owner is purchasing an FM translator and it is expected a new Buyer will be able to step into the owner's shoes for the remaining purchase term. 

A new office/studio site will be needed since the current real estate is being sold. However, a new buyer might consider purchasing the real estate as a separate transaction, then leasing or selling a second building located on the property. 

CALIFORNIA'S CENTRAL VALLEY is home to this non-commercial station operating in the reserved band. Market count shows more than 430,000 people. Class A facility might be upgraded but prospective buyers will have to conduct their own due diligence. Currently the transmission facilities are on the valley floor at 43 meters HAAT. Your studies would have to tell you if the tower site could be relocated to the mountains on the east side of the valley, with or without an upgrade in class of service. Offices and studios will have to be relocated unless you intend to obtain a studio waiver. The asking price is $495,000 which is $1.13 price per pop. Seller is not able to offer any carry-back so all-cash is a requirement. Contact MCH Enterprises for details and an Executive Summary.

  BACK ON THE MARKET!  Oregon Coast FM.  Beautiful area and good retail trade.  Nice layout, room to grow and established goodwill.  The Asking price is $235,000.  Terms or an LMA/Option may be available to the qualified entity.  Four distinct communities with distinctive personalities.  This area is severely in need of a good radio news outlet since the only print media are weaklies (pun intended).

NORTHERN ARIZONA COMBO WITH GREAT NTR:  THIS IS HOW RADIO SHOULD BE DONE! CASHFLOW, CASHFLOW, CASHFLOW!  What does everyone want?  Cashflow.  This Arizona AM/FM combo has just that...very strong sales and great cashflow.  The Asking Price is a reasonable multiple of sales and cashflow and terms may be available for the right buyer...one with a solid track-record, good financials and a sizeable down-payment.  There is also strong NTR from outdoor, internet, and print.  A year-round tourist trade brings at least a couple million people into the market annually.  New hotels are being constructed all the time and local retail sales continue to grow.  The office/studio building is available separately; purchase, rent, or lease/option.  Terms of triple net lease are negotiable.  Contact MCH Enterprises for complete financial analysis.

SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA/ARIZONA TRANSLATORS PLUS ONE FULL POWER FM:  Two translator construction permits, both within 250 miles of at least six major markets:  Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Phoenix, Palm Springs, Riverside, San Diego...probably more.  These two permits could be constructed where they are as fill-ins to their full power big brother, but their value might just be best found in the ability to move up to 250 miles to partner with your AM.  Also, there is a full power FM about to complete construction along the California/Arizona border.  Asking Price:  $55,000 each for a translator and $100,000 for the FM.

PACIFIC NORTHWEST FM WITH FM1, FM2, and FM3 BOOSTERS:  All-in asking is $1,600,000.  All cash preferred.  Rated market, this station combo has been returned to operation after an LMA/Option failed.  The FM1 booster is licensed as an auxiliary so you never have to worry about losing rated market coverage if something should happen to the main.  All three boosters are now licensed.  Virtually no "crash zone" due to new antennae design. In excess of 500,000 covered within the 60dbu contour.  Excellent market coverage, good transmission site lease and office/studio lease terms.  This one is ready to go.
