Icicle Broadcasting Company announced today the sale of three of its radio stations, including KOZI AM and FM and KZAL “Z-Country,” to the Chelan Valley Media Group.
KOZI has been on the air for 60 years and was owned by Harriet Bullitt, principal owner of Icicle Broadcasting Company.
Icicle Broadcasting will continue to own and operate KOHO 101.1 for the Wenatchee Valley from Leavenworth to Wenatchee.
Chelan Valley Media Group is a partnership made up of Allan Mayer, Karen Heric and Matt Peters of Manson, and Melissa Durfee-Davis of Seattle.
All are former Seattle-area media and marketing professionals with ties to the Chelan Valley.
The new ownership says they’re seeking to increase community involvement, promotional opportunities and serve the retail businesses in the Chelan, Manson, Pateros, and Brewster areas.
The sale is expected to close upon FCC approval this fall.
