Entercom And Urban One Cut A Deal

6

Entercom is acquiring three stations from Urban One: WPHI-FM in Philadelphia, Hot 104.1 (WHHL-FM) in St. Louis and 980 The Team (WTEM-AM) in Washington D.C.

In exchange for the three Urban One stations Entercom will be trading its Charlotte stations to Urban One. That includes 107.9 The Link (WLNK-FM), News Talk 1100 & 99.3 WBT (WBT-AM/FM) and WFNZ (WFNZ-AM).

In addition, Entercom will acquire the format, brand and creative assets of Urban One’s WFUN-FM “The Lou” in St. Louis, which will be moved to Entercom’s existing 96.3 FM signal (KNOU-FM).

Entercom expects to begin to operate the new stations under a time brokerage agreement on November 23rd.

  1. From a listener’s point of view, I’m glad to hear that WTEM in DC will be rid of the “dark” incompetent management that station exhibits. Seriously, it’s like the management is a bunch of ignorant baboons who don’t know the first thing about running a business. Not to mention their race baiting, and racist, lying Presidential ads they ran. Go bankrupt fools!!

    • IGNORANT…. DARK….. BABOONS , wow, your Pale Penis Envy is showing (guess you want to go back to the old days of castration of black men and raping black women…

      URBAN ONE, is a $ 42 million enterprise….what did you make last year Mississippi Saul

  2. Hmm. All and all, I’d say Urban One came out far better in this deal than Entercom did.

    While D.C. is arguably still a growth market, St. Louis and Philadelphia are not. Meanwhile, Charlotte is, by several different measures, a red-hot growth market with the shift in population to the ‘new South’.

    Alfred Liggins will be laughing all the way to the bank; David Field, not so much.
