Thread: Would Cox Media Group put WBLI/WBAB for sale?

    Would Cox Media Group put WBLI/WBAB for sale?

    Have you noticed recently about Cox Media Group? Well, they're in the process of selling its TV stations to Apollo Global Management! Now, it really seems to me that Cox Media Group might putting its radio stations for sale! So probably it will impact not only it's 2 stations (WBLI/WBAB) in Long Island, but its other radio stations in Tampa, Houston, Dayton, San Antonio, Orlando, Miami, Atlanta, etc. Would Entercom buy Cox's radio stations or will a string of companies like Cumulus Media, Townsquare Media or even Connossieur Media buy them?

    So what happens if Conossieur Media buys both WBLI/WBAB from Cox, would they have to sell off some underperforming stations like WHLI, WWSK to a third-party owner to avoid anti-trust concerns.

    Is Connoisseur in a buying mood? Wasn't too long ago that they unloaded underperforming WDRC-FM Hartford to small-timers Full Power/Red Wolf (company does business under both names).

    I forget where, but I'm almost positive Connoisseur spun off a couple other stations after spinning off the WDRC stations.

    Folks, do you remember 1 time when both WALK and WBLI were both owned by its former owners, Chancellor/AMFM (which was later purchased by Clear Channel/iHeartMedia) in the 90s?
