JIM LEVEN, BRUCE MITTMAN, and NORTHWOOD VENTURES' COMMUNITY BROADCASTERS LLC is buying the MILLER COMMUNICATIONS stations in SOUTH CAROLINA. A time brokerage agreement for COMMUNITY to operate the stations commences TODAY (9/8). No purchase price was announced for the deal.
“We’re expanding our radio holdings into thre fast-growing markets throughout SOUTH CAROLINA. The MILLER COMMUNICATIONS purchase doubles the size of COMMUNITY BROADCASTERS and furthers our strategic vision to grow a small-market radio group throughout the U.S.,” said LEVEN.
MITTMAN added, “We established COMMUNITY BROADCASTERS in 2006 with the vision to become the voice for the community, focusing on local news, sports and area events, not just syndicated programming. Both JIM and I feel strongly about giving back to the communities we serve through public service and charitable contributions.”
MILLER COMMUNICATIONS founder HAROLD MILLER said, “I’ve spent the last 15 years building MILLER COMMUNICATIONS and our reach within the SOUTH CAROLINA radio market. It’s been extremely fulfilling to create my radio group in the state. I’m very excited to align myself with the growing broadcasting entity of COMMUNITY BROADCASTERS where I’ll remain in a management capacity.”
