KNSN Applies for Sale to Crawford

KNSN 1240kHz, with its self-supporting tower just southeast of downtown San Diego, applied to the FCC on May 22, 2014 for sale to Kiertron, the operating division of religious broadcaster Crawford, for $1.5-million. The current owner, Multicultural Broadcasting, purchased the station from Lincoln Financial in June of 2009 for $7.25-million.

Speculation is that this could set-up a San Diego relay for KBRT-AM 740kHz, which recently moved its transmitter location from Santa Catalina Island to Anaheim Hills.

You might remember that KNSN, previously known as KSON-AM, lost its tower in a storm December 29, 2004.
