SO. CALIFORNIA DESERT
AM: Death of owner requires sale of
station. This is a rated market with over 400,000
population. The station is a not-so-old oldies station
locate along a portion of the original Route 66. Estate must be
settled for all-cash so terms or LMA/Options will not
work. AM Class C facility operates with one tower, ND2, 1kw
day/night. There is no FM translator associated with the
station, but a buyers' due diligence could determine if one
would fit. Completely equipped and licensed and ready for
a new owner. Virtually no revenue on the books, expenses
are very low. Leased tower site and
office/studio. Asking price is $250,000.
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.
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.
