PROSPECT COMMUNICATIONS ACQUIRES WDXE & WKSR

(MAR 25, 2015) Pulaski Broadcasting, owners of WKSR AM/FM, and Lakewood Communications, owner of WDXE AM/FM in Lawrenceburg, have announced the sale of their radio stations to Prospect Communications, owners of WLX Radio in Lawrenceburg. Pending FCC approval, this addition will mean that Prospect Communications will own and operate six full power radio stations and eleven translator stations bringing the total to seventeen stations in Southern Tennessee and North Alabama. The Lake family, owners of Pulaski Broadcasting and majority share owners of Lakewood Communications, would like to thank its employees and the community at large for their many years of hard work and support. “WKSR and WDXE will forever hold a special place in our hearts,” said family spokesperson Steve Lake. “The move is very difficult to make but necessary to concentrate our efforts in other areas. We will continue to support Pulaski and Lawrenceburg with other business interests.” The immediate effect for listeners of WKSR and WLX will be minimal, but near term plans, according to Prospect Communications President Roger Wright, include an improved signal for WKSR-FM, more local sports coverage, timely local news, and expanded local public affairs programming. “On 106.7 WKSR, I want to ensure Giles County radio listeners continue to have a great local station but with a better than ever signal,” stated Wright. For Giles County’s WKSR Kix106.7 FM, Wright’s ownership brings a return to the station’s roots. Wright helped to start WMGL 98.3 FM as a country music station in Giles County in the early 1970s. The station eventually became WKSR Country 98.3 FM, a sister station to historic WKSR 1420 AM. In 2013, problems with the 98.3 FM signal prompted WKSR 98.3 FM and WDXE 106.7 FM to swap frequencies with the promise that even more signal improvement would come for WKSR-FM. WDXE 98.3 FM will see an immediate change, as the staff of WWLX, 105.3 The X, will be the new hosts starting Tuesday morning, April 14th with a classic hits format including the best of today with in depth local sports coverage. As a result, former WDXE personalities Paula Walker and JP Plant will return to mornings on 98.3 FM. WDXE 1370 AM personality, Ronnie Allen, will remain on-the-air making the move to his new studio on the campus of WLX Radio on North Locust Avenue in Lawrenceburg and will continue to play Classic Country Music. Across southern middle Tennessee and north Alabama, the changes position WKSR, WDXE and WLX as a powerful combination giving advertisers access to a wide range of listeners in Giles, Lawrence, Marshall and Maury counties across a variety of formats.
