Buyout of CBS Radio stations in Slow Markets

On August 21, 2006; Entercom has agreed to buy 15 radio stations in slower markets from CBS Radio. Locations included Austin, Texas; Cincinnati, Ohio; Memphis, Tennessee; and Rochester, New York. [ [http://www.allbusiness.com/services/legal-services/4465292-1.html Entercom to Buy CBS Radio Stations] - [http://www.allbusiness.com AllBusiness.com] (August 21, 2006)] However, due to ownership limitations set by the Federal Communications Commission, Entercom had to sell off 3 of its radio stations in the Rochester market to Stephens Media Group.

CBS Radio has announced that it would sell 50 more radio stations in 12 markets to focus on major market stations and as of September 22, 2008; Entercom is (again) among the seven candidates to make first-round bids.

ABC Radio Purchase Attempt

Entercom was one of 4 broadcasting companies in a bid to buy The Walt Disney Company's ABC Radio unit [ [http://www.allbusiness.com/retail-trade/miscellaneous-retail-retail-stores-not/4382506-1.html Source: Citadel, Entercom Final Bidders For ABC Radio] [http://www.allbusiness.com allbusiness.com] (December 6, 2005)] , but was outbid by its competitor Citadel Broadcasting. Had Entercom gone through as the highest bidder, it would have to sell of all of its small market holdings.

Radio on Smartphones

Entercom teamed up with Lancaster-based FlyTunes on July 1, 2008 to make their stations available on smartphones such as Apple, Inc.'s iPhone. After it was announced that the deal was finalized that day, stations in the San Francisco and Seattle clusters were the first to air broadcasts for area smartphone customers. The rest of the stations in Entercom's portfolio are now available throughout the United States since September 2008.
