DIGITY COMPANIES is buying THREE EAGLES COMMUNICATIONS, owner of 48 stations in NEBRASKA, IOWA, MINNESOTA, and SOUTH DAKOTA. The purchase, for an undisclosed price, follows DEAN GOODMAN's company's deal to buy 33 stations from NEXTMEDIA.
GOODMAN said, “DIGITY is on-air, online, on-demand, on-location, and on-the-go. It connects today’s busy consumers with content they want, people they trust, products they enjoy and things that matter. We are very pleased to have signed the THREE EAGLES purchase and DIGITY intends to continue to grow in all areas of its operations.”
THREE EAGLES Founder/CEO ROLLAND JOHNSON said, “I think it is an excellent time to be buying stations. Radio seems to have survived the perfect storm and should come out stronger than ever ... While on the NAB Board with DEAN GOODMAN 10-12 years ago, DEAN talked about his vision of buying stations and rolling them up into a diversified company. It is great to have a vision like DEAN’s and to be able to follow through with it. DEAN is getting a group of hard working people with award winning stations who deserve a chance to participate in something as exciting as what DIGITY offers. I congratulate him on an excellent purchase.”
