Pacific Media Group, a Hawaii-based media company with statewide radio, website, app, TV channels and digital products, has entered into an agreement to purchase KFMN (FM 97) on the island of Kauai. The purchase agreement is subject to FCC approval. Pacific Media Group also executed a Time Brokerage Agreement (TBA) that became effective on December 1. The TBA allows Pacific Media Group to manage sales and programming for the station while waiting for FCC approval.

"PMG has a long and strong commitment to Hawaii and the local communities we serve. The addition of KFMN further emphasizes that commitment to the great people that have made this heritage radio station an integral part of the Kauai community," said Pacific Media Group President and CEO Chuck Bergson.

"Pacific Media Group is the only media company in Hawaii with radio stations on all 4 major islands," added Pacific Media Group Regional VP/Chief Revenue Officer Joshua Mednick. "Adding KMFN to our legendary line up of Kauai stations (KONG Radio 93.5, Shaka 103.1, HI95 (KSRF) and Country KUAI) provides advertisers unequaled reach to the Island's population and significantly enhances our portfolio of statewide offerings. We are thrilled to be able to take the relationships we've developed and nurtured across our existing stations and offer those even greater access to consumers across the island."
