Deals of the future?

An AM station in Fairfield, ID is being sold for $75,000, but if the buyer decides to operate as a commercial entity, or sells the station to another party that converts the station back to commercial, then the buyer will pay an additional $70,000. That’s the deal that Lee Family Broadcasting worked out with CSN International for KXCD-AM. We hear that many operators are finding a sale to a non-commercial organization is a good bet—in some cases, the only bet.
