Close encounter in Washington state


In the Lewiston ID-Clarkston WA market, KFFR-FM is now KZBG-FM, it’s moved from Pullman WA to Lapwai WA, and it has a new owner. According to broker Brett Miller of MCH Enterprises, Xana Duke Radio Partners is now the owner of the station after striking a 310K deal with Royal Communications of Washington. Miller is still showing the station to prospective buyers as it has gone right back on the market. Miller also says a deal in Tri-Cities sending KVAN-AM Burbank from Alexandra Communications to Compadres LLC has closed, with KRSC-AM going to Alexandra. KRSC is said to be going silent pending construction of a new studio, after which it too will likely go back on the market.
