WHNR-AM 1360 has been placed into receivership by a Polk County judge. Judge J. Michael McCarthy ordered George Reed of Media Services Group take over as receiver for the station. GB Enterprises Communications Corp. was the former license holder. Edward Olivares won a judgment of $48,020.85 against  Martin Santos, who took over GB Enterprises Communications Corp.  Santos had sold the station to Florida Spanish Communications Corp. in 2011 for $1,000. Judge McCarthy, found that Santos had failed to provide notice of the sale to the court thus allowing Reed to take over.
