Here's more evidence that one of the buyers for CLEAR CHANNEL's remaining radio spinoffs is DEAN GOODMAN's GOODRADIO.TV, as the GM of CC's ROCHESTER, MN cluster tells the ROCHESTER POST-BULLETIN that the cluster is being included in a larger sale to GOODMAN.
BOB FOX says that he met with GOODMAN about a month ago and that CLEAR CHANNEL and GOODMAN are still negotiating the final deal in other markets but that the ROCHESTER cluster's inclusion is certain. "We're excited about" the sale, FOX says, adding that GOODMAN "saw what we were doing and liked it" when he visited ROCHESTER to meet with FOX.
The cluster includes Sports KWEB-A (1270 THE FAN), Country KMFX-A-F (102.5 THE FOX), Classic Rock KRCH (LASER 101.7), and Spanish Adult Hits KNFX-A (LA PRECIOSA).
And ARKANSAS BUSINESS reports that GOODRADIO.TV is also buying CLEAR CHANNEL's NORTHWEST ARKANSAS cluster: Classic Rock KIGL (93.3 THE EAGLE), Top 40 KMXF (HOT MIX 101.9), Country KKIX (KIX 104), and AC KEZA (MAGIC 107.9)/FAYETTEVILLE.
