GREENCASTLE, Pa. - A Waynesboro, Pa., broadcasting company has purchased a Hagerstown FM easy listening radio station for an undisclosed amount, according to station officials.
John T. Staub, owner and general manager of WWMD-FM and WJEJ-AM, said he sold WWMD-FM to Verstandig Broadcasting, which operates WAYZ -FM and WHGT-AM in Greencastle, Pa.
The sale went into effect at 12 a.m. Tuesday, he said. The station's FM radio tower near Fort Ritchie, Md., was included in the sale, he said.
WWMD's 15 employees are also employed by WJEJ and will not lose their jobs, he said.
Verstandig Broadcasting made the offer to Staub in order to increase its coverage area, said Marge Martin, vice president and general manager of WAYZ-FM and WHGT-AM.
