    The ABC radio owned and operated stations were sold to Citadel with a closing date of June 13, 2007.

    Citadel was sold by Citadel shortly after emerging from bankruptcy to Cumulus Media.

    Westwood One is a division of Cumulus Media, Inc., not part of its corporate name.

    Yes thats True thanks for the clarification. Wow but the video showed what ABC Radio Networks was like under Disney's ownership right before Citadel took control of the former ABC Radio O&O's.

    Citadel also bought the ABC Radio Network, as it was then, excluding certain branded products (as you said) like ABC Radio News, ESPN Radio and Radio Disney. For a few years, Citadel continued using the ABC Radio Network name under license. But that license expired some time ago. It's all now part of Cumulus Media. It's interesting that All Access is co-sponsoring a party during the NAB with ABC Radio. That is the part of Disney mentioned in the OP that is managed by Skyview.
