In the wake of parent company Citadel Broadcasting’s Chapter 11 filing on Sunday, Citadel Media announced today that it has signed a long-term agreement with ABC News Radio and a multi-year extension with ESPN Audio. Under the terms of the agreements, the network will continue to provide advertising sales support and affiliate relations for ABC News Radio and will maintain its relationship with ESPN Audio to sell advertising across its portfolio of properties.
“Extending these partnerships allows our network to maintain its position as a leader in the industry,” said John Rosso, President of Citadel Media. “Our goal remains the same – connecting advertisers with the audiences they are targeting and delivering content that drives listenership for our affiliates. ESPN Audio and ABC News Radio are the perfect broadcast partners to help us meet that goal.”
