Nevada Public Radio has agreed to sell KSGU in St. George, Utah, to a religious broadcaster.
Last year, Nevada Public Radio’s board of directors discovered financial woes at the station, including $2 million in unpaid bills. Since then, leadership of the Las Vegas station has been looking to offload KSGU and stations in Carson City and Reno to help meet the station’s obligations.
Religious broadcaster Educational Media Foundation agreed to purchase KSGU from Nevada Public Radio for $382,000, according to the asset purchase agreement.
KSGU, an FM station with reach into southern Utah and northern Arizona, airs a simulcast of Nevada Public Radio’s news programming.
