ENTERCOM has sold the three ROCHESTER stations it had initially filed to put into a trust for spinoff -- AC WRMM (WARM 101.3), Alternative WZNE (THE ZONE 94.1), and Adult Hits WFKL (FICKLE 93.3) -- to STEPHENS MEDIA GROUP, which is taking over via an LMA today. The price for the trip was not disclosed. The sale was compelled by FCC requirements set after ENTERCOM purchased several stations in three markets from CBS RADIO.
MEDIA VENTURES PARTNERS represented ENTERCOM for the deal.
