Sage Weil’s Civic Media is continuing its rapid growth across the state of Wisconsin with the purchase of three AMs and four translators from Magnum Media for $3.65 million.

Civic will acquire Oldies 1400 WRJN/99.9 W260CV Racine/98.1 W251BU Kenosha, Oldies “Eagle 1490” WLXR La Crosse, Soft AC 105.7 WEZY Chippewa Falls/93.5 W228EP Eau Claire, and translator 95.7 W239CV Oshkosh. Magnum had just closed on its purchase of WEZY (formerly WCFW) in October.

The deal will give Civic Media seventeen stations across the state of Wisconsin since the company was formed last July, most of which currently or will soon feature a Liberal News/Talk format.
