American Fidelity buys more property near Britton and Broadway in Oklahoma City
American Fidelity's 9000 Broadway LLC bought a building and six acres in Oklahoma City from The Springhill Group for $1.4 million. Tyler Media leases the space for FM stations KRXO, KMGL, KOMA, KJKE and KOKC-AM.
Ty Tyler, president of Tyler Media, said he didn't know when the radio stations would move and noted that a lease is in effect. OPUBCO continues to lease office space from American Fidelity but plans to relocate downtown in spring 2014, and has a longer-term agreement for occupation of the press plant.
American Fidelity intends to relocate its headquarters from 2000 N Classen.
Gaylord Broadcasting Co. built the radio building in 1976. In 1991, ownership transferred to OPUBCO. Citadel Broadcasting Co. bought the property in 2003 and sold it to The Springhill Group in 2007.
