Salem Media Group has agreed to purchase WWFE-AM (670) known as “La Poderosa”, a Spanish-language talk radio format emphasizing Cuban news and music.

Additionally, Salem Media Group is purchasing WWFE’s FM translator W276DV (103.1) along with WRHC-AM (1550) and its FM translator W254DV (98.7).

“For over four decades Salem Media Group has provided a platform for conservative voices on-air, and now online, and in print,” Salem Media Executive Chairman Edward Atsinger said (h/t Radio Online). 

“Now we will do the same for South Florida’s Spanish-speaking community as well, as we add leading Spanish-speaking voices of freedom to our lineup.”

The station’s current formats will remain intact as Salem Media Group intends to continue broadcasting in Spanish following the closing of the purchase.

“Jorge, Sr. left us before his work was complete, but it gives me comfort that before his passing he and I had agreed that Salem Media Group shared his vision to provide a home for conservative Spanish-language programming in Miami,” Fenix Broadcasting’s Ana Rodriguez said. 

“Parting with our stations is not easy, but Jorge, Jr. and I have more confidence about the transaction because of Salem Media Group’s track record as a platform for conservative ideals.”

Salem Media Group’s purchase of WWFE and WRHC comes on the heels of another deal that saw the company acquire other stations in Miami in 5kW Spanish Sports WMYM-AM (990) and its translator W254DT (98.7) from Actualidad Media Group.

After more than a decade, 710 KNUS weekend host Randy Corporan has hosted his last show for the Denver news/talk station.

According to the host, Salem Media Group informed him it would not be renewing his contract late last month.

Corporan told CompleteColorado.com that after the death of his wife in June of last year, he considered ending the show. However, he persisted, commuting an hour and a half one way to continue the show.

He added that since announcing his exit, he has been contacted by “truly conservative outlets” to continue his program, but said he won’t begin a new show until after the 2024 election.

“I want to get the start of my new life going and sort myself out,” he said. “And I want to take care of some personal problems that need to be dealt with.”

Randy Corporan is listed as one of the defendants — along with Salem Media Group, parent company to 710 KNUS — in a defamation lawsuit brought forth by Dominion Voting Systems over what the election machine company calls “false claims of fraud in the 2020 election.”

Civic Media Admits Earl Ingram Interview with President Biden Was Edited At White House’s Request

“Civic Media unequivocally stands by Earl Ingram and his team.”

After the controversy surrounding WURD hosts admitting they were fed questions by the team for President Biden, Civic Media in Milwaukee has admitted a recent interview with the commander-in-chief and Earl Ingram was edited.

The Milwaukee radio host interviewed President Biden on Wednesday, July 3rd before airing it on his morning show the following day.

However, on Monday morning, the company was notified that after the interview, someone affiliated with the Biden campaign asked for edits to the interview, which Ingrahm and his producers enacted.

“Immediately after the phone interview was recorded, the Biden campaign called and asked for two edits to the recording before it aired. Civic Media management immediately undertook an investigation and determined that the production team at the time viewed the edits as non-substantive and broadcast and published the interview with two short segments removed,” the station said in a statement.

The station says that the portions that were edited out of the published interview included Biden’s statement that he has “more Blacks in my administration than any other president, all other presidents combined,” and another that referenced former President Donald Trump called for the hanging of the Central Park Five in the last 1980s.

“With a high-profile interview comes a listener expectation that journalistic interview standards will be applied, even for non-news programming.  We did not meet those expectations. Civic Media disagrees with the team’s judgments in the moment, both with respect to the handling of the interview questions and the decision to edit the interview audio,” the statement from the company continued.

“Civic Media unequivocally stands by Earl Ingram and his team. Earl is an invaluable voice for Milwaukee and Wisconsin, and remains a crucial member of the Civic Media organization. The decision to make the requested edits to the interview was made in good faith. While we disagree with the decision, we stand by our team. This has been a learning experience and we will do better moving forward.”

The admission that the interview was edited comes on the heels of Earl Ingram admitting to ABC News that he — like WURD host Andrea Lawful-Sanders — accepted questions from the Biden White House in exchange for the interview.

After the controversies were uncovered, the Biden campaign and White House has claimed it will no longer suggest questions to potential interviewers.
