Nassau Grabs Last of the Sconnix Stations

The last of the Sconnix stations has been sold. Nassau Broadcasting Holdings has agreed to buy the assets of three stations in New Hampshire from a Sconnix affiliate. The stations are WLNH(FM) and WEMJ(AM) in Laconia, and WBHG(FM) in Meredith.
In unrelated deals, Nassau last week said it plans to buy three FMs from Tele-Media Co. of New Hampshire. Also recently, it said it would acquire nine FM and two AMs serving Portland and other areas of coastal Maine. And it recently closed on WOJZ(FM) in Egg Harbor City, N.J. Including pending deals, Nassau will have 32 stations, all in the Middle Atlantic and Northeast.
Nassau broker Glenn Serafin noted that WLNH was purchased in 1975 and was one of the first Sconnix stations. The group eventually owned stations in Boston, Miami, Baltimore and other major markets. Its principals, Randy Odeneal and Scott McQueen, now own no other stations.
