Still a few markets to go

0

It has been a while since Clear Channel announced a sale from its divestiture of  448 radio stations in 88 markets, but we hear some more should be coming soon. All of the really big deals are done – particularly the sale of 175 stations to Dean Goodman's GoodRadio.TV for 452 million and 52 stations to George Laughlin's GAP Broadcasting for 139 million – so it is down to dealing with the last 86 stations in 16 markets for the brokers at Kalil & Co. To date, Clear Channel has announced and filed deals to sell 362 radio stations in 72 markets for a total of 820 million. So, if the rumor circulating that someone made a preemptive offer to buy the entire package for 800 million is true, Clear Channel came out ahead by shopping for the best offer on each property, especially if that covered 90 markets, including the two swapped to Cumulus and removed from the auction list.
