Salem's Pennsyvlania Media Associates subsidiary is buying WMKI 1260 AM in Boston for a reported $500,000 and KMKI 629 AM licensed to Plano/Dallas for $3M.
The Boston purchase has some wondering whether Salem would launch its N/T format, branding as as "The Answer". If so, it could be a landing place for the Rush Limbaugh Show. Limbaugh is losing WRKO as an affiliate and crosstown Talk WMEX 1510 AM reportedly has passed on an opportunity to carry the show.
