Looks like Salem is LMAing Portland, Oregon’s KPAM/860 – an intriguing development, since Pamplin is in the middle of selling it to Tron Dinh Do’s Intelli LLC, which specializes in Vietnamese programming. Intelli’s actually buying both Pamplin AMs, KPAM Troutdale and KKOV Vancouver, Washington/1550. It’s paying $1.2 million (October 25 NOW). We deduce the Salem LMA from a quote by Salem Senior VP Phil Boyce about KPAM being “our newest talk station.” That’s contained in a Compass Media Networks release about the Joe Pags daily talk show signing KPAM as its hundredth affiliate.
When I was at Salem Comm 10 years ago they had then 7 studios for 5 stations…3 FM’s and now 4 AM’s…don’t know if they did a build out with undeveloped office space. Know 3 of the AM’s have no live programming thus no studio needed. Just wonder where they put KPAM. Say field trip.
