EMF is purchasing WNPQ/Canton (The Light 95.9) from Tuscarawas Broadcasting Co. for 850k. WNPQ is a Class A 4100 kw and will be EMF’s 20th station in Ohio.

WNPQ PD Jan Markowitz (who’s been with the station 11 years) told HisAir today, “It’s been a real blessing being a part of the WNPQ team for several years. It is bittersweet to have to move on, but God has other plans for the station now and for each of us who have been a part of this special Ministry. I am happy that it will remain a Christian Station. KLOVE is a very reputable station and will be a blessing to our listening area. I have always said that life is an adventure with God. I look forward to the next adventure He has planned for me.”

The sale is pending FCC approval. Tuscarawas Broadcasting Co. will still own one AM station WBTC/Uhrichsville, OH (1540) and its translator.
