KDJQ sold… againDon Day | April 27, 2008
For the second time in a year – KDJQ-AM has a sale in place, according to FCC records. Current owner Robert E. Combs hopes to sell the silent 50kw station to Salt and Light Radio. Last year the station had a deal in place to sell to Churchill Media of Oregon – but that deal fell apart, leading Combs to list the station for sale on craigslist. Zions Bank later sued to recover the assets of the station because Combs had repeatedly failed to pay back money owed to the bank.
Salt and Light radio lists Keith Pettyjohn as its president – and all the board members have Boise addresses. Salt and Light Radio, Inc. filed for a business license from the State of Idaho on March 4th. The filing says the businesses purpose is to “operate a Catholic radio station.”
There’s also a Salt and Light Catholic Media Foundation that operates a TV network in Canada – but it does not appear the entities are related.
