We’ve just learned that Roundhouse Radio 98.3fm has been sold.
The beleaguered station announced it would be going off the air on April 30th, then it took that back just as the general manager and founder Don Shafer left, offering hope that they might be sticking around.
The station will officially go off the air on Sunday night at 9pm, after Jim Byrnes’ show.
More to come.
