COMMUNITY BROADCASTING INC., BUYS KFKX FROM HASTINGS COLLEGE

From Tom Taylor NOW on 7/27/16:

 

Hastings College in Nebraska speedily finds a buyer for now-silent KFKX Hastings/90.1. Last month the school told the FCC it’s “no longer certain the radio station should be part of its academic world,” and the May 17 NOW story said that “'Nebraska’s Best Alternative’ KFKX is turning in its license.” The school plans to keep offering podcasting and webcasting to students, but it’s selling the Class A KFKX to the not-for-profit arm of the Bott family’s Christian broadcasting operation. That’s Community Broadcasting Inc. It asks the FCC for a main studio waiver and will mostly use 90.1 to rebroadcast its St. Louis-market Christian teaching KSIV-FM/91.5. Price for KFKX is $37,500, and brokers are Mark Jorgenson for the seller and Bill Lytle for buyer Bott.
