Community Broadcasters has purchased four stations from Glory Communications Inc., out of Columbia, S.C., and has filed for transfer of the licenses pending approval from the FCC as of Dec. 14, 2015. Doug Ferber of Defcom Advisors brokered the sale.
The four stations purchased from Glory Communications are WLJI(FM) in Summerton, S.C.; WTQS(AM) in Cameron, S.C.; WSPX(FM) in Bowman, S.C.; and WPDT(FM) in Coward, S.C.
“We’re complementing our current radio holdings in these three fast-growing South Carolina markets,” said Bruce Mittman. “The Glory Communications’ purchase furthers our vision to grow a small-market radio group in strategic locations throughout the U.S. Community Broadcasters plans to continue the current format in these markets.”
In September, the company purchased 12 radio stations, seven translators and three TV construction permits located in Florence, Sumter and Orangeburg, S.C., from Miller Communications. The purchase from Glory Communications brings Community Broadcasters’ total holdings to 42 signals.
Community Broadcasters LLC, in partnership with Northwood Ventures, currently owns and operates 16 stations in Elmira/Corning, Olean, Ogdensburg and Watertown, N.Y.
