Radio station sold to advocacy group

October 1, 2005


— A southeast Kansas organization has bought a second radio station to spread its message of advocacy for the disabled.

Southeast Kansas Independent Living, or SKIL, agreed on Thursday to buy KLKC from Acme Broadcasting LLC.

The price of the transaction was not released. The purchase requires the approval of the Federal Communications Commission.

Dave Sorrick, director of development and special projects for SKIL, said the station planned to play music for 40 to 50 minutes hourly and use remaining time to spread its advocacy message. It will continue to broadcast adult contemporary music as well as Parsons High School sports and Kansas City Chiefs and Royals games.

SKIL previously bought Pittsburgh station KSEK.
