According to The Orlando Sentinel, the station said it has an agreement with Daystar Public Radio Inc. to buy the license for WKSG. Cedar Creek is the city of license for the station, but WKSG rents a studio in downtown Ocala, and WMFE said it has not decided if it will assume that lease.
WMFE is also buying WKSG’s broadcast tower, with the station’s antenna, and the 14.45 acres on which the tower sits in Silver Springs.
WMFE said the sales price for everything is $900,000.
The money will come from proceeds of the 2012 sale of WMFE-TV, formerly Orlando’s PBS station, to the University of Central Florida, as well as major gifts from 90.7 supporters.
