Reading PA Radio: News/Talk WEEU Sold

Longtime Reading-based radio station WEEU has a new owner. The station confirmed that Treese Media Group has bought the station, according to WFMZ-TV.

The group is run by John and Kristine Treese out of Schwenksville, which is in Montgomery County.

Twilight Broadcasting bought WEEU in 2019 when the Reading Eagle Company filed for bankruptcy. The owner of Twilight said back in March he didn't have the time to operate the station.

In a statement, the owners of the station tell us he's "grateful to the past and present staff that have and continue to produce a high-quality broadcast radio product."

He adds that John has had a long career in broadcast and Treese Media were a "perfect fit" as a local company.

"We are excited for the opportunity to build upon WEEU's almost century-long tradition of service to Berks County and beyond," John Treese said in a statement.
