In 2001, Colorado Public Radio president Max Wycisk and Chuck Lontine reached an agreement for CPR to purchase KWAB-AM (Radio for Change) for $1.2mm. Thus, expanding CPR's News & Information channel into the Boulder market.
Seven years later, CPR relied on us again when it was time to expand even further into the Denver-Boulder market with the $8.1mm purchase of KFDN-FM from The Educational Media Foundation.
The end result? CPR listeners can now hear both classical music & CPR's News & Information channel on the new KVOD-FM (88.1 MHz) and KCFR-FM (90.1 MHz).

Chuck Lontine represented the seller in this transaction.
Preserving fine arts radio in the Denver-Boulder Market will remain a Marconi hallmark for years to come for several reasons.
First, it renewed a heritage FM home for KVOD, which was launched as the regions only classical and fine arts radio station by Gene Amole in the 1960's from a radio tower atop Ruby Hill (ironically not far from Chuck's boyhood home in Denver).
Second, it renewed a very special relationship with Max Wycisk and Jenny Gentry from Colorado Public Radio & our wonderful client Joe Miller at Educational Media Foundation.
