Roger Ailes? Simon Cowell? Forget ’em. You, too, can be a broadcasting mogul for the low, low price of $700,000, according to this listing on eBayBud Kelley is practically giving away his small TV station in western Michigan at a starting bid of $500,000, with a price to sell at $700,000. It’s the only local broadcasting station in the area and runs 24 hours a day. Think of the programming possibilities!
Kelley, who wants to “retire in the South,” as he notes in the listing, writes that the station has been broadcasting since 1990, with a programming slate of mostly live talk shows and outdoor sports jaunts. But the bingo show on Thursday nights is the most popular, according to the New York Times.
NYT: Mr. Kelley said the business, run out of the town of Muskegon, is profitable even though he hadn’t made the switch to a digital signal from analogue. A new owner could spend $100,000 or more to add the digital transmitter.
