Beacon Stations For Sale

We'd already heard that at least one of the Beacon Broadcasting Youngstown market stations - Christian/eclectic rock/talk WEXC/107.1 "Indie 107.1" Greenville PA - had interested buyers... even before owner Harold Glunt passed away in late January.

Now, all five Beacon stations along the Ohio/Pennsylvania border are up for sale.

In addition to some helpful tips from OMW readers, we received this release directly from Pittsburgh-based station broker Ray Rosenblum....who clearly knows that the Beacon stations have been covered in OMW frequently...
