The Minnesota-based American Public Media Group is still not commenting on reports that it will sell the three local radio stations that make up Classical South Florida - those include WKCP in Miami and WPBI in Palm Beach County. The trade publication “Current” reported the stations will sell to a religious broadcasting company from California. The sale - and how the sale happened - is making waves in South Florida.

It may be the day the classical music died, but Classical South Florida listeners still have no official word that three local radio stations have been sold to a California-based religious broadcasting company.

On the brink of this year's legislative session, Governor Rick Scott is dealing with a big thorn. Scott replaced former head of the Florida Department of Law Enforcement Gerald Bailey, saying Bailey left voluntarily.
