1560WQEW New York NY Radio Disney has found a buyer for 1560 WQEW New York in the late Harold Campings’ Family Radio. For $12.95 million, Family Radio programming will return to New York City for the first time since the organization sold 94.7 WFME Newark, NJ to Cumulus for $40 million and 106.3 Mount Kisco, NY in 2013. At the time of the sale, Family made its intent known that it wished to acquire an AM station in the market. Disney has operated WQEW since December 1998 when it began operating the station via LMA. It converted that lease to an outright purchase from The New York Times Company in 2007 for $40 million.NRC

ABC News Reorganized 01JAN2015Source
Westwood One launches a new news product called Westwood One News. Many, but not all, ABC and NBC affiliates will be carrying Westwood One News, which will be produced out of Washington by many of the staffers who now produce NBC Radio News. (It will also feature audio from CNN, but will not carry CNN branding). ABC Radio News will continue to be produced, but will be distributed by a different, smaller syndicator called Skyview. Some existing ABC affiliates may opt to continue with ABC via Skyview, but many will likely stick with the the WW1 product. We don't have (and are unlikely to get) a full list of who’s going which way. We do know that the stations Cumulus own will switch from ABC to WW1 News. Confusingly, this includes WABC, KABC, WLS, KGO and the rest of the stations that were formerly owned and operated by ABC, but have long since been sold off to Citadel and thence to Cumulus. Please share this widely; it will make a lot of the data now out there (especially in sources like the NRC Log) outdated as of 01JAN2015, and we’re all going to be scrambling to figure out who’s on what team then.NRC
