ROCHESTER NY's DEMOCRAT & CHRONICLE reports BROTHER WEASE (WCMF mornings) and SCOTT SPEZZANO (WPXY mornings) will be moving to HIGH FALLS, while TONY and DEE (WRRM mornings) will stay in their current home at HSBC PLAZA under a deal that ALL ACCESS reported on last year (NET NEWS 8/21/06) to satisfy federal guidelines for the acquisition of CBS RADIO's ROCHESTER stations by ENTERCOM COMMUNICATIONS CORP.
WCMF and WPXY will move to ENTERCOM's studios in HIGH FALLS, while the remaining two stations and WFKL will be packaged as a group to be sold, said ENTERCOM/ROCHESTER VP/GM MICHAEL DOYLE.
Last AUGUST ENTERCOM offered to buy 15 radio stations in four markets from CBS for $262 million in cash. The deal included four stations in the ROCHESTER market: WCMF, WPXY, WRMM and WZNE. ENTERCOM had to divest at least two of the stations to meet federal regulations on ownership concentration.
