Gee, WHIZ: A Marquee Deal Is Sealed


It’s an unusual DMA, which includes the Buckeye State’s capital and the city known as a pottery center and for recreational activities along the Muskingum River.

And, it is home to two NBC affiliates — Nexstar-owned WCMH-4 in Columbus, Ohio, and an affiliate serving a city east of Columbus that signed on the air in 1953.

Now, that property, licensed to Zanesville, Ohio, is being spun, as are four radio properties. The buyers are Brian and Patricia Lane, and Greg Guy of Patrick Communications served as the seller’s exclusive broker.
