Maybe WRLL‘s plan all along was to not make an offer on WCEV because they knew no one would buy them, and then they could try to scoop it up for nothing through the process they are trying now. WWCA 1270 in Gary was just officially listed for sale at $675,000 and that does include a good amount of real estate, also a directional translator with not a lot of coverage. The directional pattern is very restrictive so I don’t think they’re going to get anywhere near that price for it. The economy in the Gary area is not good, probably would need a nonprofit/religious operator which is what they have now with Relevant Radio. Relevant Radio gets enough coverage with WNTD 950 that they don’t need the Gary signal. Hopefully we won’t see another station go dark.
