Purdue announces its decision to sell the World’s Bank and Associates station, the WBAA-FM/AM in Lafayette, Indiana.

From the original article: This is a business transaction, not a sale. The station is sold to a new, separate entity.

From the original article: Purdue will sell the WBAA-FM/AM and all of its facilities and broadcast licenses on which the station is licensed.

“All of Purdue’s radio licenses in the State of Indiana will be sold as a result of this transaction,” Purdue spokesman Mark Jones said in a statement.

The sale “makes sense,” said Purdue Vice President of Radio Sales and Marketing Matt Dennin, because the station has been an integral part of Purdue’s broadcast output for more than four decades.

“Over the last few years, we felt that we didn’t get the return that we wanted from our radio properties,” Dennin said.

Brought into the university system in 1968 as a part of the radio training and test pilot program, the station was not designed or paid for by Purdue until 1992.

The station played music, news, and features that were not included in any Purdue radio station.

Since 1984, the WBAA-FM/AM has been broadcasting an urban format with a focus on news and sports.

That station has been Purdue radio’s first in the city where Purdue is also located.

The sale of the former station is expected to close in the early part of July. A release for shareholders on the pending sale will be issued in the late summer or early fall.

The sale is expected to result in the sale of the WBAA-FM/AM and WBAA-TV to an entity headed by a consortium of four investors, a source with knowledge of the plan said.

The WVAD-AM outlet in West Lafayette, Indiana, has been sold to VTV News Networks Inc.

In the mid-1970s, Purdue sold WBAA-AM to the State Board of Higher Education. It was the first student-operated radio station in the country to be set up on a federal grant.

The station played country music until its demise in 1994, and then switched from broadcasting a contemporary Christian format to a talk and information format.

American radio station WBAA in the United States

As of July, 2007, the following American radio stations are broadcasting on the FM, AM, and satellite transmitters in the United States: (1) WOAI and WOCP-FM in the United States, (2) WWL in the United States, (3) WOAP in the United States, (4) WVOK in the United Kingdom, and (5) WRCV in Canada. The following will be added as the airwaves change their coverage area. The broadcasting organizations will maintain contact if the coverage area changes.

Note: The above-listed broadcasting organizations are the public institutions that have the right to broadcast and these broadcasting organizations are the public institutions that have the right to receive transmissions.

Note: Broadcast means that the transmitted signals are not received by a receiver in an untagged transmission area of the radio, and broadcast means the transmitted signals are received by at least one receiver in an untagged transmission area of the radio.

The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) regulates radio broadcasting on the nation-wide airwaves, and the Federal Communications Act governs the rights and responsibilities of private citizens to transmit signals over the nation-wide airwaves.

The FCC licenses, or de-recognizes, broadcasting organizations and determines, in several ways, the minimum distance and transmission power needed to transmit signals.

The Commission also requires that all radio stations broadcast a variety of forms of broadcast programming, including music, commercials, information, news, and talk programming.

The FCC regulates all broadcasting organizations and determines, in several ways, the minimum distance and transmission power needed to transmit signals.

The FCC licenses, or de-recognizes, broadcasting organizations and determines, in several ways, the minimum distance and transmission power needed to transmit signals.

Under the First Amendment, a private person is allowed to transmit radio messages to all persons “who in the reasonable belief that such message might be of inestimable value to them are able so to communicate.

The Broadcast Communications Act, also commonly known as the Communications Act of 1934 and the Federal-Aid Act of 1934, establishes that the rights to broadcast a certain type of programming must be protected by the First Amendment.

AM 920: The longest AM station in Indiana.

Indiana has had two AM radio stations for over a century. The most famous was the country and western music broadcaster, WNCN (AM) and another, the religious and educational broadcaster, WNCR (AM). Another notable AM station was WLAW (AM) – a station, and former radio station, later converted to an independent after the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) deemed the frequency and format to not fit within its broadcasting rules in 2006. Both are defunct. (see below) In the late 1970s and early 1980s there was an AM station known as the “Voice of the West” as well as WCCW (AM), the country music broadcaster, and a Spanish language radio station (which was later taken over by WCCW and was eventually owned by i-Mexican Broadcasting, LLC). In the early 1990s an AM station known as the “Fiesta of the Oaks” replaced WCCW and the “Voice of the West” ceased operations. The two long-gone FM stations were WQYZ (AM) and WMYO, which have now been discontinued (although the FM programming has been carried on on KWON in recent years). The only one in the area besides WMYO, WIYN-FM (AM) is now one of the few stations that still uses the same call letters, and the current owner of both is the old station WMYO-FM. A lot of the material for this article is the work of Jeff Smith, and the photos are all by Dave Smith.

WNCR was sold in the early 1970s to Indiana’s first owner, WNCN. The FCC then changed WNCR’s call letters to WNCW, but the station was never heard on the air. The station was then sold to the John Acheson family in 1971, and on that same year it switched from country and western to religious music. The Achesons sold WNCR in 1975 to Southwestern Bell Corporation, which in turn was sold to United Service Group, in 1976.

“The Jefferson Parish Library is the first library in the state of Louisiana to be fully automated. This system, along with other improvements, will allow Jefferson to increase its collection to an extraordinary extent.

Lafayette’s public library, located on the city’s East Campus, is home to two dozen collections, including one of the largest in the state. The library offers nearly 5,000 readers per day, according to its website.

In the past 18 years, Lafayette has been the site of three library-related community grants, with the goal of building an all-digital library.

The library that would have been the first to fully automate its operations was the Jefferson Parish library, which was built in 2000. In 2012, that library and its digital conversion, as well as the libraries of the city’s other six parishes, moved to a new facility on the city’s West Campus, along I-10.

The Jefferson Parish Library and the Jefferson Parish Library System are a joint venture between the Jefferson Parish Library Commission and the Jefferson Parish Library System, a commission created to carry out the city’s Community Library Revitalization Plan.

In 2016, for example, the city of Lafayette’s two libraries had nearly 5,000 card-ready patrons per day. The city’s public libraries, which in the past had provided access to less than 50 percent of the city’s library collection, had a combined collection of more than 8,000 volumes.

The library system, and in particular the Jefferson Parish Library, had been funded by community grants from its inception.

As the city moves toward an all-digital library, more work, especially in the areas of collections, e-books, and circulation, is required. But the Jefferson Parish Library system has already invested nearly $8. 3 million at both its East and West campus locations. 8 million has been invested in digital conversion at the East campus.
