2 radio stations are sold

Staff report

Two Beacon Broadcasting Inc. radio stations in the Youngstown-Warren market have been sold to Whiplash Radio LLC of Waynesville, subject to the approval of the Federal Communications Commission.

The announcement came Tuesday in a press release from Dennis Glunt, son of the late Harold Glunt, who was principal owner of Beacon. The stations went on the market after the death of Harold Glunt in January. Dennis is the executor of his father’s estate.

The stations — WANR (AM-1570) in Warren, and WRTK (AM-1540) in Niles — were sold for a total of $50,000, including real estate, according to media broker Ray H. Rosenblum of Pittsburgh. The stations are simulcasting Fox Sports, a talk format.

The principal owners of Whiplash Radio, Christopher and Kathy Lash, operate WYNS (FM-89.3) in Waynesville.

During the past 25 years, Christopher Lash has owned and operated radio stations in Pennsylvania and Tennessee.

Rosenblum noted that negotiations are continuing with another prospective buyer for the sale of the remaining Beacon stations in Pennsylvania. They are WGRP (AM-940) and WEXC (FM-107.1), both in Greenville, Pa.; and WLOA (AM-1470) in Farrell, Pa.

Chris Lash is doing a great job with 1540 WRTK playing classic Country Music for the Valley. It fills the hole left with WGRP now off the air and WLOA simalcasting WEXC.
