ATLANTA — A well-known Atlanta radio station is about to have a new owner - and possibly a new format.

Cumulus Media announced Wednesday that it had entered into an agreement to sell six stations to Educational Media Foundation for $103.5 million. One of those stations is WYAY, known locally as Talk 106.7 FM. 

Right now, the station serves up conservative talk shows including "The Shannon Burke Show," "The Ben Shapiro Show," and and "The Shelley Wynter Show." But with the EMF purchase, it could be moving into new territory.

While EMF's future plans for WYAY haven't been released, the company runs two stations - both of which play Christian music.

One other Georgia station is also included in the sale - Savannah's WZAT, known in the area as 102.1 The Sound.

Cumulous is also selling off WPLJ in New York, KFFG in San Francisco, WXTL in Syracuse and WRQX in Washington and entering into a "swap agreement" with Entercom Communications Corp. to obtain three stations in Indianapolis.
