Here it is again. Today its been reported that Bonneville, Cumulus, Radio One and Clear Channel all are in the swapping mood over these additional FM signals.
What are your thoughts?
If Cumulus is involved in any swapping, I'd have to think they'd be swapping out of Cincinnati, not into it. After all, the reason Clear Channel was forced to divest is because one of the private equity firms that bought Clear Channel (I think Thomas H. Lee Partners) is also an owner in Cumulus Media Partners. I can't imagine a Cumulus deal involving those stations would pass DOJ muster unless that private equity firm gets out of CMP.
