It is somewhat disappointing that Cox is leaving Greenville, as recently they are doing some interesting programming with their translators, such as Chuck FM and the soon speculated talk station. I wonder if those translators will remain? And in neighboring Charlotte, they own the top rated WSOC-TV Channel 9 television station, but they sold their country music station WSOC-FM 103 a number of years ago, to CBS Radio. I wonder if CBS would consider buying the Cox stations here?
Seeing what they've put in to the translators, and that one already has a good following, I don't see why a potential buyer would get rid of them as long as they don't mind leasing them (not sure why Cox didn't just buy them). Everything's already set up. Chuck is probably generating some decent pocket change, they do nothing but add value to the two main signals. I have lower expectations in the long term, though, for the speculated talk station once Cox gets out of the picture.
I highly doubt CBS would be interested in Greenville. They've spent the last decade moving out of medium-sized markets and focusing on large ones.
