Vermont radio in jeopardy
Ata bankruptcy auction last week, Nassau Broadcasting Partners put its 49 radio stations up for sale to satisfy creditors, including twelve Vermont radio stations. However, none of the Vermont stations were bought.
“As far as Vermont goes and the stations in Vermont, there is no disruption of any services,” said John Gales, general manager of WEXPFM, The Fox, in Rutland, Vermont, who also manages WSNO-AM, WORK-FM and WWFY-FM in Barre. “We’re continuing to move on and if we have a new owner we’ll operate under that ownership and if we don’t, we’ll continue to operate under the present ownership.”
These Vermont radio stations are listed on Nassau’s website: WORKFM, Barre; WWFY-FM, Berlin; WWOD-FM, Hartford; WFYXFM, Walpole (N.H); WZLF-FM, White River Junction; WXLF-FM, Bellows Falls; WEXP-FM, Brandon/jamaica; WTHK-FM, Wilmington; WMOO-FM, Derby Center; WSNO-AM, Barre; WNHV-AM, White River Junction; WIKE-AM, Newport.
