Salem Honchos Now Run 570 - 9/18 - Tom Taylor Now tells us more about Redskins owner Dan Snyder's recent sale of WSPZ: "Washington DC's sports WSPZ/570 now belongs to the principals of Salem Communications - though not to Salem itself. The $2.1 million purchase of WSPZ Bethesda by 'AM 570 LLC' keeps its debt off the books at Salem... While it makes Salem Ed Atsinger and various members of the Atsinger/Epperson clan the new landlord for Cumulus. That's because Cumulus sold its own Bethesda tower site to Toll Brothers and is diplexing talk WMAL/630 with WSPZ. AM 570 LLC didn't acquire any of the studio equipment of WSPZ seller Red Zebra. But it did pick up 58 acres of land in Montgomery County. The current Salem trio in DC is conservative talk '1260 the Answer' WWRC, plus Christian teaching WAVA/780 and WAVA-FM/105.1, both licensed to Arlington. We’ll see what WSPZ's new role will be. The market's expecting one of the Salem-operated stations to do Salem's health-and-fitness talk format. In Minneapolis, it’s 'Wellness Radio 1570' KDIZ.
