FALLS MEDIA Pres./Co-Founder DAN BALLA said, "DAN HALYBURTON’s extensive experience, knowledge, and industry contacts position us to begin making acquisitions in our target markets. From our first meeting, it was apparent that DAN shares our vision and passion for great radio, and a belief that investing in great people is as important as the properties we acquire."
"I am excited about returning to day-to-day radio operations. FALLS MEDIA has had real success in its first market, and I plan to bring my station and digital experience to help grow our stations and position us for expansion," commented HALYBURTON.
With HALYBURTON aboard, the company will seek additional capital, and focus on strategic acquisitions in mid- to large-sized markets.
