Keweenaw Bay Indian Community wants to buy Q-107 & ESPN 970

Post by Thunderstorm » Thu Feb 24, 2022 3:10 am

Michigan -- Keweenaw Bay Indian Community has filed a $400,000 deal to buy hot AC “Q-107” WMQT and sports “ESPN 970” WZAM in Ishpeming, MI from Taconite Broadcasting. The deal also includes two Marquette, MI-licensed translators: W227CJ at 93.3 FM and W295CX at 106.9 FM, both of which simulcast WZAM.

93.3 actually simulcasts 107.7 WMQT now from a Marquette tower.

If I look out my window right now, I can see the Q107 studio on Front St. They claim to be a top 7 pop station in the country - is it actually for sale? What will Jim Koski do if they are sold?

Tom is checking out earlier than Joe Blake. Good for him.
Ed Janisse, General Manager of Radio Operations for the KBIC, said, “This is a great opportunity for our clients and customers on the Rockin’ Eagle and Eagle Country as well as the clients and customers of Q107-WMQT and WZAM. We can offer great support for businesses from the Marquette and surrounding area coverage on WGLI and WCUP and vice versa. Listeners of Q107-WMQT will still have great music, lots of fun and a chance to be a part of the station. Because, after all, Q107-WMQT is “Radio Put Together By You.”

Tom Mogush, President of Taconite Broadcasting said, “Jim Koski and I will be staying on with the KBIC to help in the continued growth of the stations, exploring many new opportunities. We see the synergy of the radio stations in Baraga and Marquette working together to promote local businesses and events to grow our economy in the U.P. The company was started by Joe Blake and Bob Olson 51 years ago, a legacy we’ve been proud to continue. We are thankful to the many people that have worked at the stations over the years and look ahead to many more years of excellence.”

Wait. I thought you still lived in the greater Ann Arbor area?

I do live in Ann Arbor, but I was in Marquette for a long weekend when I posted that.
