KOKX 1310 AM in Keokuk, Iowa and WCEZ 93.9 FM Z-93 licensed to Carthage, IL are being bought by Mike Greenwald, a local city councilman and station employee Leah Jones, partnering as Keokuk Broadcasting. Terms were not disclosed.

But instead of sitting back and looking for a new job, Jones started organizing meetings with city and county leaders to save Radio Keokuk.
Greenwald said the station had meetings with several broadcast companies but either side couldn't reach an agreement.
So Greenwald and Jones decided to buy it from Riverfront Broadcasting and they said its because the station has a big impact on the community.
"We were worried for quite a while that it wouldn't exist anymore," Greenwald said. "It was just an asset that was too big and too important to the community to let it go."
"We will be adding health shows, things that the community has asked us for that brings something to their life and impacts their day to day," Leah Jones said.
