WVYN owner acquiring 1kW noncom FM from Indiana Community Radio Corporation
Greenfield, Ind.-based Indiana Community Radio Corporation is selling one of its Tri-State radio stations.
ICRC, whose president, Martin Hensley, was arrested last month after bringing a firearm onto school property in Greenfield, has reached an agreement to sell WBOO (90.3 FM) in Morganfield, Ky. to Real Life Radio Foundation, Inc., which is based in Mt. Vernon, Ill.
Real Life owns and operates WVYN (90.9 FM "The Vine," licensed to Bluford, Ill.), an 11kW Christian station that reaches all or part of 17 Southeastern Illinois counties; with the addition of 1kW WBOO, Real Life's programming will reach an additional seven counties, including two in Southeastern Illinois (Gallatin and Hardin), one in Southwestern Indiana (Posey) and four in Western Kentucky (Crittenden, Henderson, Union and Webster).
Sale price for the station is $15,000, according to paperwork filed with the FCC; the deal will close upon approval from the Commission, which will likely take a few months.
