Daryl O’Neal’s Township Media grows in Austin TX with the purchase of Gospel 1060 KFIT Lockhart from Darrell Martin’s KFIT Inc. for $695,000. Township will pay $555,000 for the station assets while co-owned Fortview Ventures LLC will pay $140,000 for the property. Township Media owns AAA “Sun Radio” 1490 KTSN Austin as well as three simulcasting FMs outside the market: 104.1 KMSN Mason, 96.3 KTHE Llano, and 96.3 KGID Giddings. An LMA of KFIT will take place ahead of closing. Once they complete their upgrade of 96.1 K241DA Austin to 96.3 from the West Lake Hills tower farm, which is permanently tied to KTSN, Township will need to originate programming on 100.1 K261DW Austin from another signal with KFIT now filling that role. Mary Lopez’s 103.9 K280GN had been licensed to rebroadcast KFIT, but is not part of this deal.
