Salem Media Group has agreed to purchase 1300 KKOL Seattle from Tron Din Doh’s Intelli LLC for $500,000.
The deal marks a reacquisition of the station, which Salem had traded to Intelli in 2018 for what is now Conservative Talk “860 The Answer” KPAM Troutdale/Portland OR. Salem began reoperating KKOL via Time Brokerage Agreement on June 7. It becomes the fourth station in Salem’s Seattle cluster joining Christian Preaching “820 The Word” KGNW Burien-Seattle, Conservative Talk “1590 The Answer” KLFE Seattle and Regional Mexican “La Patrona 1680” KNTS Seattle.
KKOL has been operating mostly under STA since acquired by Intelli. The station began Program Testing Authority in 2019 triplexed with Salem’s 1590 KLFE and 1680 KNTS, but it is currently operating with its 3.2kW nighttime power all day due to interference being caused by its licensed 50kW daytime operation.
