PA Radio: Baseball Club Buys WOYK-AM

York Professional Baseball Club LLC. has agreed to buy WOYK 1350 AM from WOYK Inc., the radio station's current licensee.

The deal is expected to be completed by April 1, according to the York, PA Daily News.

“The Revolution brings many resources and possibilities to WOYK and its listeners,” said Doug George, the president of WOYK, in a statement. “Given the community focus of the radio station throughout the 26 years of my involvement, I find it both exciting and gratifying that the ownership of the station will remain local and continue the tradition of positive participation in our community.”

Darrell Henry, the Revolution's play-by-play broadcaster, will become general manager of the station when the acquisition is complete. He will continue to call all of the York Revolution games.

WOYK (5kw-D, 1Kw-N)  is York's oldest radio station, founded in 1932, and operates with a sports-talk format. The station carries all 140 Revolution games, York College sports and a weekly broadcast of York County high school sports.

All of station's local programing will remain on the air after the sale, Braverman said.

“I think there will be a push for more local programing,” he said. “If there are other sports we should be doing on the station, we will look at that.”

WOYK is a NBC sports radio affiliated station and carries selected national sports talk and game broadcasts through that network.
