Family Life Radio buys KGDP-FM

A Santa Maria Times notices from October 1, 2009, states, "On September 14, 2009 an application was filed with the FCC to assign the license of station KGDP-FM, 90.5 MHz, Santa Maria, California from People of Action to Family Life Broadcasting, Inc." Transaction should be completed in December 2009.

Calvary Media buys KGDP-AM

According to an article in Radio World magazine, Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa, headed by Charles W.(Chuck) Smith, has agreed to acquire former Religious outlet, now dark, KGDP-AM (660)/Santa Maria, CA, from Radio Representatives Inc. for $260,000. The article purports that the AM station is licensed for 8kw day and 6kw night, and throws a signal in nearby Bakersfield. Given heavy skywave signals on AM 660 from KTNN in Window Rock AZ, the comparatively-weak nighttime signal and the distance between Bakersfield and Orcutt, the amount of coverage to the east may be less than advertised.
