In all likelihood radio's two biggest players will not be participating in what will probably be the sell-off of some of radio's best radio stations and brands. With debt and revenue issues facing iHeartMedia and Cumulus, most of the financial experts we spoke to Tuesday believe those two companies will not be involved in any CBS deals. And, as Media Services Group broker Bob Heymann tells Radio Ink, in all likelihood, it will not be one buyer, they will be sold as market clusters. So who are possible buyers? Let the speculation begin.
Broker Bob Heymann says we should keep an eye on Field. "Entercom is a very good candidate to pick off clusters." And Field has consistently said he would be open to looking at deals that made strategic sense to the company. Being bullied by the DOJ over the Lincoln Financial deal has probably worn off by now, and with only one station in Los Angeles Field might be thinking, KCBS, KNX, KROQ, and KRTH would look pretty cool emblazoned with an Entercom logo.
