La Salle County Broadcasting is now officially Starved Rock Media.
The FCC on Tuesday granted the transfer for broadcast licenses of WLPO, 99.3 WAJK, and 96.5 The Wolf to Starved Rock Media. The Miller family had owned and operated the stations for more than 70 years. Vice President of Operations John Spencer, an employee for nearly 30 years, is the owner of Starved Rock Media. He and late station engineer Steve Vogler formed the company last year year in a bid to keep the stations locally owned.
Spencer previously indicated he has no plans to make any substantive changes, pointing to what he calls a fantastic team of individuals.
