Local Jock Succeeds In Effort To Save Keokuk Pair

Posted: 04 Jun 2018 08:00 AM PDT

After going off the air at the end of April, Leah Jones has succeeded in
her efforts to save the two stations she worked for in Keokuk IA.

Jones has partnered with Michael Greenwald, who serves on the Keokuk City
Council, to purchase Country 1310 KOKX Keokuk IA and Classic Hits Z93 93.9
WCEZ Carthage IL from Doyle and Carolyn Beckers Riverfront Broadcasting
under the name Keokuk Broadcasting Inc. Purchase price was not disclosed,
but the pair of stations resumed operations on Friday, June 1.

Jones served as afternoon host at WCEZ and Office Manager for the duo under
previous ownership. She led efforts locally to find a new owner for the
stations before before becoming the actual owner.

Original Report 4/19: Riverfront Broadcasting plans on shuttering Country
1310 KOKX Keokuk IA and Classic Hits Z93 93.9 WCEZ Carthage IL should it
not find a new operator for the stations by the end of the month.

WCEZ afternoon host Leah Jones, who also served as Office Manager for the
company, was the only employee not terminated last week. Jones, a Keokuk
native who previously served as a Producer for The Brother Wease show at
iHeartMedias Radio 95.1 WAOI Rochester NY, is also leading efforts to find
a new operator for the stations. Tri-States Public Radio reports that Jones
has been meeting with city leadership and business owners to find a way to
acquire the stations. She told TSPR, What we are really trying to do right
now is use the shop local initiative, but put it towards our local radio

Riverfront, led by Doyle and Carolyn Becker and Dave Brock, purchased both
stations from Withers Broadcasting in December 2015 for $100,000 and
flipped both to their current formats in June 2016. The sale was
accompanied by Withers sale of 95.3 KOKX-FM and 96.3 KRNQ Keokuk to
Educational Media Foundation for $500,00. KRNQ was since spun off to Bott
Radio Networks Community Broadcasting last May for $125,000.

Riverfront Broadcasting owns seventeen other stations across Iowa,
Minnesota, and South Dakota.
