A Big Shuffle In Elmira/Corning


Bill Christian's Great Radio is purchasing four Elmira signals (WEHH-AM, WELM-AM, WOKN-FM, and WLVY-FM) and four translators from Robet Pfuntner's Pembrook Pines. Up the road a bit, in the same deal, Sound Communications picks up Olean Stations WMXO-AM and WOEN-FM and Salamanca signals WGGO-AM and WQRS-FM. No price was announced at this time.

Christian is also the president and owner of WYDC-TV (Big FOX) and WJKP-LD (MyNet) in Corning, as well as five Class A TV stations in the Northeast. Sound Communications currently owns FM radio stations WENY in Elmira, WENI Big Flats, WGMM in Corning, and WKPQ in Hornell, NY, as well as AM radio stations WENY and WENI in the Elmira Market. It's managing member and CEO is Bettina Finn.

The seller was Richard A. Foreman, receiver for Pembrook Pines.
