WAMU in Washington, D.C., announced Tuesday that it will sell an FM station in Maryland to Delaware Public Media. WAMU will sell WRAU in Ocean City for $537,500, according to the asset purchase agreement. JJ Yore previously told Current that the planned sale was a strategic move and not sought out of financial necessity. In a press release, WAMU said WRAU’s audience represents over 2% of WAMU’s weekly broadcast audience. The sale allows WAMU to “focus its resources on the Washington, D.C., region by cultivating audiences in the high-density metropolitan region through digital platforms and new broadcast formats,” the release said. The sale would expand Delaware Public Media’s reach into southern Delaware and Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
