Local radio stations change hands again

GREENVILLE — Greenville’s two radio stations have changed hands for the second time in about a year.

In June 2009 Cumulus Broadcasting announced it had sold KGVL 1400 AM and KIKT 93.5 FM to KGVL Radio LLC, a company owned by Alpha Horne, along with her husband Mike, who managed the stations.

Tuesday, Mike Horne announced the stations were going back to Cumulus and that he was resigning from the stations as of today.

“Recent FCC decisions about the future of the stations have caused us to make a business decision to leave Greenville,” Horne said. “We are grateful to everyone who has helped us with the stations and wish everyone in the area nothing but the best in the future. Cumulus Broadcasting will take over management of the stations on July 1, 2010. We hope Hometown Radio can continue in the direction we have pointed it.”

The Hornes were the former owners of radio stations KARV in Russellville, Arkansas and KWCK in Searcy, Arkansas.

The FCC has ruled the owners of two Dallas/Fort Worth radio stations could proceed with the construction of a new 43,000-watt Class C0 facility, eliminating a provision in its permit that required the stations to wait until KIKT completed a move to new facilities in Cooper.
