Classical South Florida to acquire WXEL in West Palm Beach

Barry University has applied to the FCC to transfer its pubcasting station WXEL in West Palm Beach, Fla., to American Public Media's Classical South Florida in Fort Lauderdale, reports the All Access Music Group website (third item). Deal price: $4.05 million. APM owns adjacent-market noncom Classical WKCP in Miami. The agreement is the culmination of several years of negotiations for WXEL, which was nearly sold to New York City's WNET five years ago (Current, March 6, 2006) and, more recently, a local community group and school district.
