Local Girls & Boys Broadcasting (LGB) have agreed to sell 3kW AC WZBG-FM/Litchfield, CT (serving Danbury) to long time Connecticut based group radio company Red Wolf Broadcasting Corp., for an undisclosed price. Since placing the station on-the-air in 1992, WZBG has been a storied fixture and trusted voice of the Litchfield and Torrington marketplace, providing news, community service, vital information and entertainment to the region.

LGB managing partner Virginia Mortara said, "It was a difficult decision for the ownership group [consisting of actress Susan Saint James and storied media executive Dick Ebersol]... but the time has come for us to turn the reins over to new and exciting ownership to move the station forward to its next chapter of its success."

Red Wolf Broadcasting founder and CEO John Fuller commented, "Local ownership of radio stations is a core commitment which we take seriously and we're excited about the pending ownership of the station and plan no staff changes, but we are looking to enhance the heritage created by its originators over 32 years ago."

Red Wolf is a long-term owner of multiple radio stations in Connecticut, including WDRC, WMRQ and WBMW, as well as radio stations in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. Richard A. Foreman Associates was the exclusive broker for the transaction.
