It’s always exciting to report a growth story. In that vein, Akron, Ohio NON-COMM Triple A station The Summit will soon be available in Athens, Ohio.

The Federal Communications Commission reports that Friends of 91.3 has applied to acquire Class D translator W211BT, operating at 90.1 FM. Spirit Communications is the seller, with a reported purchase sales price of $30,000.

Operating with 38 watts at 161 feet, the signal is enough to cover Athens, home of Ohio University (not Ohio State University). Athens has a full-time population of roughly 25,000, and Ohio U adds as many as 20,000 more.

The translator will be the third signal carrying programming from licensee Akron Public Schools. The Summit is currently available on 91.3FM in Akron/Canton, and 90.7 FM in Youngstown.

The purchase is expected to close within 60 days, with the simulcast commencing at that time.
