Portland, Ore.-based Alpha Media recently acquired a 7.6-acre property in Pleasant Prairie that includes the radio station offices and studios for rock station WIIL-FM 95 WIIL Rock and news talk station WLIP-AM 1050.

The property was sold by West Palm Beach, Fla.-based Digity Companies LLC for $1.1 million, according to state records.

Digity, LLC announced in August it would sell its entire radio station portfolio to Alpha Media. The sale included 116 stations in 26 markets.

Digity owned the Pleasant Prairie property for two years. It purchased the land and radio station offices from Englewood, Colo.-based NextMedia Group Inc. for $1.1 million in February 2014. The purchase was part of a deal announced in October 2013 where NextMedia sold 33 radio stations to Digity.

Now Alpha Media owns everything. The company was started in 2009 as Alpha Broadcasting with six radio stations in Portland, Ore.  In 2014, Alpha Media was formed when Alpha Broadcasting merged with L&L Broadcasting.

Today, Alpha Media owns more than 135 radio stations in more than 28 markets across the country, according to the company website.
