Radio Huckster coming in White Hall

Posted By on Sun, Mar 15, 2015 at 12:30 PM

Talk Business and Politics reported last week that presidential candidate Mike Huckabee of Florida is a 49 percent investor in a proposed purchase of Radio KTRN in White Hall

William B. Wachter, who is listed as the owner in the paperwork, is based out of Pittsburg, Kansas, while Paul Coates of Thornton, Ark., is listed as managing member and will have a 51% equity stake in the New Directions business venture.

The Huckster said through a spokesman the investment was "an opportunity for Gov. Huckabee to have part ownership of a radio station he once broadcasted on, in a community he still loves, with a friend in broadcasting he's known from his teenage days when they both worked at KXAR Radio in Hope."
