THE PALM BEACH POST TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 12, 1995 11B 2 Martin AM radio stations sold By MITCH McKENNEY Palm Beach Post Staff Writer "Two Martin County radio stations, WSTU-AM 1450 and WHLG-FM 102.3, are being sold to Palm Beach Radio Broadcasting Inc., the National Enquirer-controlled group that operates Indian-town-licensed WPBZ 103.1. ' WSTU, an oldies station licensed to Stuart, and Jensen Beach-licensed WHLG, which plays adult contemporary music, will keep their staffs and formats, said WPBZ general manager Gary Hess, who holds a 20 percent stake in Palm Beach Radio. Peter Callahan, chief executive officer of National Enquirer and Star publisher American Media Inc., holds 60 percent, while Vice Chairman Maynard Rabinowitz holds 20 percent, Hess said. "We could start lots of rumors about format changes," Hess said, though he said there was no need because the Glascock family, which bought WSTU in 1969, "did a really good job." The family founded WHLG in 1980 with call letters in memory of Harvey L. Glascock. Federal Communications Commission approval of the sale is expected in three months. American Radio Systems, which in the past 15 months has bought WIRK, WBZT and WKGR, was involved in the negotiations and is financing the sales of WSTU and WHLG, Hess said. The purchase price was not disclosed. At the same time American bought WKGR in February for $19 million, it paid $10 million for WPBZ and "assigned" it to Palm Beach Radio. With Palm Beach Radio operating three such stations, American Radio is poised to retrieve them and have six stations in the market if the rules ever allow it. The FCC limits ownership to two AMs and two FMs in the same market, though expected telecommunications reform has prompted a flurry of station sales. Rexall expands direct sales to Mexico Bloomberg Business News ; WASHINGTON Rexall Sundown Inc. said its direct sales unit will expand internationally by going into Mexico. Rexall Showcase International sells the company's vitamins and other nutritional products through independent distributors, similar to Amway Corp. So far, the division has operated only in the U.S. The company will set up a network of distributors in Mexico later this year and plans to expand into Korea in 1996. Damon DeSantis, Rexall's president, made the announcement Monday during a speech before the Council for Responsible Nutrition and the Direct Selling Association in Washington. "Spreading democracy in Mexico is creating a more favorable climate for our type of industry," he said. Rexall, based in Boca Raton, also announced several new products, including Vascular Complete, for the vascular system; Traum-Ex, a natural homeopathic pain remedy; Women's Formula 1, a nutritional complex with non-toxic carbonyl iron for women of child-bearing age; and Women's Formula 2, a vitamin and mineral complex with calcium for post-menopausal Boca firm, Rockwell create roadside emergency network Bloomberg Business News BOCA RATON ADT Security Systems Inc. said it formed an alliance with Rockwell International Corp.'s automotive unit to create a roadside emergency response network. ; Terms weren't disclosed. The network will use Rockwell's existing Global Positioning System, or GPS, a satellite tracking system, and ADT's existing network of customer monitoring centers to provide distressed motorists with emergency assistance. " Motorists will be able to use the network by pushing a button on a device to transmit a signal through the GPS to ADT centers. The center will record and relay such information as vehicle location and forward it to appropriate emergency organizations. The companies said the device can be installed as part of a vehicle's system or as a unit separate from the vehicle. Rockwell's El Paso, Texas, plant is producing test units and will also assemble the in-vehicle hardware for the units. ADT will market, install and maintain the systems. The system, which will be introduced in 1996, will be sold first to ADT's commercial clients, then to its other customers and to the consumer electronics aftermarket, said ADT spokesman Ralph L. Frank. Boca Raton-based ADT is the largest provider of electronic security services in the country. Seal Beach, Calif.-based Rockwell develops and makes products for the aerospace, electronics, automotive and graphics industries.
