Ohio Media Watch has confirmed that the Clear Channel Ashtabula stations have been sold. Surprisingly, it was one of the few Clear Channel groups in Ohio not sold to “GoodRadio.” The group was sold to “Sweet Home Ashtabula” broadcasting, which is owned by Tom Embrescia. Tom is the brother of Jim Embrescia, who owns Media One. “SHA” will own WREO 97.1, WFXJ 107.5, WZOO 102.5, WYBL 98.3 and WFUN 970 once the sale is approved. In addition, Clear Channel applied for a translator in Erie at 96.7. The application was approved back in 2004, but is set to expire on August 2nd of this year.
