Clear Channel Radio sell-off back to 20 markets

0

We’ve been updating our list now that 11 markets are back in play after one large transaction collapsed. By our count, there are now 20 Clear Channel Radio markets up for grabs from the original 90. All that remains, though, are small markets – nothing in the top 200. The largest market from the cratered Blue Point Media deal was Duluth, MN, Arbitron market #204, which isn’t even the largest left. That is #201, Yakima, WA. 11 of the markets still to be sold are not rated by Arbitron.
