TeleSouth’s Questionable Biloxi Spin Follows Alpha Adds


A contract has been signed and an application is being filed with the FCC for the transfer of radio stations WANG-AM, WTNI-AM, WCPR-FM, WGBL-FM, WQBB-FM, and WXYK-FM, all in Biloxi, Miss., and FM translator W278CE at 103.5 MHz in Biloxi, from Alpha Media to TeleSouth Communications.

The news, released late Thursday by broker of record Kalil & Co., came before the filing of a divestiture asset purchase agreement with the FCC on Friday.

The APA has fresh details on what TeleSouth is paying Alpha … and how TeleSouth must immediately divest one of those stations to comply with current market ownership.

A second APA reflecting that deal was also filed Friday with the FCC. It seems very “Sinclair”-esque, on paper.
