* Citadel and Disney/ABC reached a $2.7 billion deal to transfer 22 ABC radio stations across the country to the control of Citadel Communications, pending government approvals and closing. Detroit stations WJR AM 760, WDRQ FM 93.1, and
WDVD FM 96.3 are involved in the transaction.

* Midwestern Broadcasting has agreed to purchase Public WVXA-FM 96.7 Rogers City (and its translator at FM 95.3 Mackinaw City) from Cincinnati Classical Public Radio for $411,000 pending FCC approval and closing. Midwestern, owner of 9 Northern Michigan stations including Country WATZ-FM Alpena, will donate the translator to the Interlochen Center for the Arts upon completion of the deal and has applied to change the status of WVXA from noncommercial to commercial. Cincinnati Public Classical Radio also owns WVXM-FM 97.7 Manistee and WVXH-FM 92.1 Harrison.



worse decision you could have made! We were so grateful for a station we could continuously play at work. You have lost many listeners! It's back to classical and public radio for me. Thank goodness they are reliable abd easy on the earsand spirit. I just can't emphasize how dissappointed I am!
