Titans Withdraw Motion In Citadel Case
June 9, 2010 at 4:31 AM (PT)
With the emergence from bankruptcy of CITADEL BROADCASTING, the NFL's TENNESSEE TITANS and DREAM SUITES, INC. have withdrawn their motion to compel CITADEL to either assume or reject the company's deal to air the TITANS games on its Sports WGFX (104.5 THE ZONE) and lease a luxury box at LP FIELD.
The initial motion asked the court to make CITADEL decide on the contract by MAY 17th, noting that while CITADEL was not in default, the TITANS needed to know whether CITADEL wanted to continue in order to secure another affiliate if the company chose to end the contract.
Meanwhile, a pending "big announcement" on the air next MONDAY touted TUESDAY by afternoon host PHIL WILLIAMS at CITADEL's Talk WNOX-F (NEWSTALK 100)/KNOXVILLE has touched off speculation in the market that CITADEL will move the Talk format to a new frequency and end its LMA with WNOX-F licensee OAK RIDGE FM, which had filed, and then withdrew, an objection to the CITADEL reorganization plan.
