Clearing the Static 2408

It's an extremely quiet week here at CTS, so much so that we share an aircheck Bob recorded of KGON's 50th anniversary celebration on February 1. Before that, it's lots of stations being sold this week, as DLC Media is selling its stations in Indiana, and Kensington Digital is acquiring a few in Alabama. We also talk about an innovative move out of Audacy.

Clearing the Static 2405

 It's a quiet week here this week.
Beasley has dropped podcasts from one of its two translators in Detroit. This leads us on a brief tangent about the legal IDs.
We have a few other things to discuss, including Neuhof Media getting out of the business, with the sale of its Danville and Decatur IL stations, and the announcement of the divestiture of the rest.
Also, Rocking M is officially out of the business, and a station in Pennsylvania relaunching with an oldies stunt over the weekend.
