Commercial Radio Owners

Information contained in these pages describing the country’s largest Radio owners, some of which are publicly traded –  is NOT investment advice

Financial information are only selected data taken from official SEC 10-K filings (where available), and are not intended to give a complete picture of the financial condition and operations of any company.

The intent is only to provide general background information about each company and its operations for people in the general public interested in the radio business.   Company names are informal names used to identify a company or series of companies, not the full legal name of the company.

The financing and accounting for radio station owners is a very complex matter best explained by a Certified Public Accountant if you intend to become an investor in one of the companies.

No recommendation is being made regarding any security, nor should any be inferred by any statements on these pages.
