Examining Hollander rumors


There have been plenty of rumors floating around lately regarding what former CBS Radio CEO Joel Hollander will do when his non-compete is up with CBS Radio. The most recent was that he was bidding on Lincoln Financial Media with his new private equity backers (10/19/07 RBR #205).

Others heard over the last six months include he will be buying WQCD-FM NY from Emmis and turning it into a Country format; That he will be heading back to Westwood One; that he might be in touch with Univision; that he might start his own business; and that he might be working with Citadel/ABC under Farid Suleman. According to Hollander’s confidants, the Westwood rumor is definitely not true; the rest is still "possible."
