Susqy SF Stations In Cumulus Fold

Although the keys haven't reportedly been handed over yet, Susquehanna Broadcasting's quintet of Bay Area radio stations — KNBR/680, KTCT/1050, KSAN/107.7, KFOG/104.5 and KFFG/97.7 — is now the property of Cumulus Media Partners (CMP).

The FCC approved the transfer last Friday (March 3). The information appeared in the FCC's Daily Digest yesterday and today.

Meanwhile, Citadel Broadcasting, as part of the complicated merger deal with the Walt Disney Company, has begun the process of filing with the FCC to transfer its stations from its existing shareholders to "the shareholders of Walt Disney Company & Citadel Broadcasting Corp."

The first stations involved in the filing, which were reported in the March 7 Daily Digest, included Citadel's KESP/970 ("ESPN 970"), KHKK/104.1 ("The Hawk"), KHOP/95.1 and KATM/103.3 ("Kat Kountry"), each of which is based in Modesto.

KGO/810 and KSFO/560 are the Disney/ABC stations in San Francisco that will go into the combined Citadel/Disney radio offshoot.
