Springfield, MO – Cumulus Media closes a deal to sell its standalone FM in the Springfield, MO market to VCY America. It will pay $100,000 to buy the currently-silent KRWP (107.7). Wisconsin-based religious broadcaster VCY America currently owns more than two dozen full power radio stations, as well as 15 FM translators including KVCY (104.7) in nearby Ft Scott, KS. It will convert KRWP into a noncommercial station. Cumulus bought KRWP for $825,000 in 2004 from the Gilbert family but it failed to add any additional stations in market No. 135. It took the station silent in March. Cumulus will still own a six-station cluster in the Columbia-Jefferson City, MO market. Broker: Eddie Esserman, Media Services Group
