45 North Media has been operating the station under a Local Programming and Marketing Agreement since January 2.
The seller is owned by Kent Smith, who also owns WUPN-FM (Paradise/Sault Ste. Marie). The buyer is owned by Bryan and Joyce Hollenbaugh. Hollenbaugh most recently managed a cluster of six stations in Albany, N.Y..
