WMAL 650 AM makes changes in tower site

From Radio World, comes word that the winning bidder for the 75-acre legacy tower site of Cumulus station WMAL (AM) in Bethesda, Maryland, is a partnership of luxury home builders Toll Brothers and Winchester Homes.

WMAL's tower, satellite dishes and  a transmitter building occupy the site. When the four-towers array-visible to Beltway traffic just outside of Washington DC-is dismantled and everything is removed, Cumulus will lease transmission facilities elsewhere.

WMAL's programming is simulcast on 105.9 MHz, Woodbridge, Virginia. That location is unaffected by the site sale.
