  GATEWAY TO THE NORTHWEST:  FULL POWER DIGITAL TV.  This full-power, all-digital UHF television broadcast station serves its Nielsen-rated market located in a growing and prosperous region in Eastern Idaho and Western Wyoming.  This is a full-power TV station (NOT an LPTV) featuring new, top-of-the-line digital broadcast equipment.  It broadcasts 24/7 with popular programming from a major national network on its main channel, and another popular national network on its digital sub-channel.  A third digital sub-channel carries a 24/7 shopping network that has been bringing in additional revenue. The station's signal reaches a large region of the state, with 100% must-carry market coverage on DISH Network, DirecTV, and all local cable outlets as well as over-the-air.  Seller desires to sell the station in order to concentrate on other media holdings in another state.  The asking price is $850,000 with a generous discount for all-cash and seller will carry financing with a well-qualified buyer.  The station has been on the air for only a few months and revenue is starting to grow.  Contact MCH Enterprises with expressions of interest.

NORTHWEST FM WITH PARTIAL RATED MARKET COVERAGE:  Class C3 facility recently ended a lengthy development process and the License has been granted.  Sellers have decided to look for a qualified buyer.  The asking price is based on a $3.00 price per pop within the Longley-Rice 60-dBu coverage.  The primary service area is one of the fastest growing counties in the Sate and is part of a much larger metro, rated market.  Operating expenses are currently very low.  A new owner will have a clean slate when it comes to choosing and equipping office/studio space.  An executive summary is available via email.  

NORTHERN OREGON COAST FM:  This is a new FM about to complete construction and sign-on.  Request for licenses have been filed with the FCC and grant is expected any day.  Current plans for co-location with another station in the market for office/studio.  There may be the possibility of acquiring a second FM in the market to go along with this one.  Very nice area on the coast with a great quality of life.  Good commercial environment; perfect for strong sales-oriented owner/operator.  Asking is $150,000 and Seller is motivated.

PRICE REDUCED!! 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 $180,000. 

ASSIGNMENT APPLICATION ON FILE WITH FCC:  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.

PRICE REDUCED!  Oregon Coast FM.  Beautiful area and good retail trade.  Nice layout, room to grow and established goodwill.  The Asking price has now been reduced to $195,000.  LMA/Option or Assumable Debt may be possible depending on terms and conditions.  Cash to existing loan would be approximately $85,000.  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 (bad pun intended).  Call MCH Enterprises for details or a presentation.  There is a chance that a second FM could be added to this one soon...again, call for details!

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.

FULL POWER FM ABOUT TO SIGN ON:  Full power FM about to complete construction along the California/Arizona border. Small market, but good possibilities with seasonal tourist trade. Asking Price:  $110,000.

ASSIGNMENT APPLICATION ON FILE WITH FCC:  Northern California Coast FM With Translator:  This Class A has been turned around and the Licensee would like to sell.  The asking price is $295,000.  This is one of the most beautiful parts of the California Coast.  Presentation available.  Sales are stable and cashflow is positive.  Needs a strong sales oriented owner/operator.  Seller would stay on as on-air talent.  LMA/Option may be possible, depending on terms and conditions.  2015 sales were just under $200,000 and 2016 already has over $100,000 booked for the year.  An application to modify the Station's license has been filed which would relocate the Station to a better tower site, increase the power, and change frequency.  Target date for grant is March, 2016.

RECENT DEALS SOLD AND CLOSED

SOLD AND CLOSED!  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. 

SOLD AND CLOSED, FULL POWER FM STILL AVAILABLE: 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.  

SOLD AND CLOSED:  SMALL MARKET TEXAS CPNeeds a tower site and the CP is set to expire in January, 2017 so time's a'wastin'  The asking price is only $10,000 so give us a call or drop an email for further details.

SOLD & CLOSED.  Oregon Coast FM with FM1 Booster:  Due to a death in the family, this Class C3 facility is now available.  Terms will be considered subject to buyer qualifications.  Station has an excellent reputation in the market, loyal staff, but now needs a new owner who can bring sales and service back to previous levels.  Asking price is $210,000 w/Seller financing. The Station and Booster serve three unique and distinct communities that are outstanding.  Good office/studio facilities in the heart of the downtown action and plenty of room to expand it you'd like.  This is a perfect opportunity for a mom 'n' pop and/or first station. 

SOLD & CLOSED  CALIFORNIA COAST LPTV-D.  Rated market, transmission facilities just completed construction with new or like-new equipment and license granted.  No office or studio.  Asking price designed to sell quickly:  $135,000.  Custom STL system operates in the 5GHz band.  New 2-channel encoder/mux makes adding a second HD channel an easy thing to do:  operate one HD channel and lease the second HD or SD channel out.  Here's an idea! Use the Station or one of the sub-channels to run your radio-style format:  AM, FM, LPFM, or even Internet Station.  Call us for details and a presentation.

SOLD AND CLOSED! Rated Market in Northwest (Seattle-Tacoma):  2.7 million people within the Seattle-Tacoma market, 2.9 million within the 60-dbu contour (Longley-Rice). This station has been in development and is now available "as is" for less than $2.76 PPP (that's about $8 million in plain language).  Program it yourself. Transmission facilities included, tower lease in place.  STL hops are licensed but STL equipment not included.  New owner to provide office/studio set-up.  EAS will be included at close of sale.  

SOLD and CLOSED!  Central California Coast AM Station. Nice area, great climate! Needs owner/operator with sales savvy. Asking $160,000. Tower site lease is secure with long term protection. Put your own studio/office together or rent space from the seller.  Plan on bringing your own traffic, billing, and  automation. New transmission equipment and towers. Current programming is C/W and you can keep that or do your own thing.
