Midwest Communications to buy 6 radio stations

Posted:
FARGO, N.D. (AP) -

Radio Fargo-Moorhead owner and president Jim Ingstad says he has entered into an agreement to sell the six radio stations to Midwest Communications, based in Wausau, Wis.

The sale includes KFGO-AM, KVOX-AM, KBVB-FM, WDAY-FM, KRWK-FM and KMJO-FM.

Ingstad says it's been an honor the last six years to be part of the best broadcast team he's ever worked with.

Duke Wright, president of Midwest Communications, says his company is a family-owned-and-operated broadcast company with more than 54 years in the radio business. He says the company has had a long-term interest in getting involved in North Dakota radio, and he has relatives in Fargo.

The transaction is pending approval by the Federal Communications Commission. Midwest Communications will begin operating the stations upon approval by the commission.
