MacDonald Broadcasting Buys WXLA/WQHH




MacDonald Broadcasting is purchasing Lansing radio stations WXLA-AM (Mix 1180) and WQHH-FM (Power 96.5) from Mid-Michigan FM Inc, according to an announcement today by the media website All Access. The purchase price for the two stations is reported to be $3.65 million in cash, and the deal will double MacDonald's property holdings in the Lansing market. MacDonald currently owns WILS-AM (Unforgettable 1320) and WHZZ-FM (101.7 Mike FM).

WXLA-AM originally signed on in September 1982 as WDTB, with an All-News format consisting of CNN Radio news combined with local coverage. The format was changed to Urban Contemporary in July 1984. Sister station WQHH-FM signed on the air in the summer of 1991, providing Lansing's first Urban FM signal.

The sale is pending FCC approval.
