Radio Bismarck Mandan Buys KKBO-FM/Bismarck ND

Connoisseur Media has agreed to sell Adult Hits KKBO-FM (105.9 Bob FM)/Bismarck, ND, to Radio Bismarck Mandan. Radio Bismarck's President/CEO Bob Denver commented, "This is an exciting move for us. Together with our sister station KXRV-FM (Mojo 107.5), Radio Bismarck expands its ability to continue serving the community with exemplary programming and local focus."

Denver continued, "With this move we are filling another of the three studios we built in downtown Bismarck last summer. Our team of veteran broadcasters is looking forward to the challenge of continuing to change the landscape of broadcasting in the area."

BOB-FM debuted in Bismarck in 2009, and for the past three years it has operated as a single station in a very competitive radio market. "Bismarck is a wonderful market," said Connoisseur CEO Jeffrey D. Warshaw, "but owning only one station no longer made the best business sense for us. We wish Bob and his staff great success."

Michael Bergner of Bergner & Co. served as the broker on the deal. (07-18-12)
