His heirs.

But, though Tanger did tell Geller that he intended to keep the classical format, and Geller 
said something to that effect on the air when he said he had sold the station, we don't know 
what the terms of the contract actually were.  If there was an agreement to keep the station 
classical, there may have been some time limit, or some hedge language in case the format 
wasn't viable commercially.  I believe I once heard that there are some such clauses in the 
terms of the trust that Ted Jones formed for WCRB.
