By the Chief, Media Bureau:

Federal Communications Commission

DA 11-1546

I.

INTRODUCTION

1.
The Media Bureau ("Bureau") has under consideration the captioned transfer and
assignment applications (the "Applications"), as amended,1 in connection with a proposed
transaction whereby a wholly-owned subsidiary of Cumulus Media, Inc. ("CMI") will acquire
control of Citadel Broadcasting Corporation ("Citadel").2 The Applications contemplate a transfer
of control of 228 radio stations currently licensed to the Citadel Subsidiaries to CMI. Pursuant to
the Agreement and Plan of Merger ("Merger Agreement") between the parties, Citadel will
become a wholly-owned subsidiary of CMI.3 In addition, because of the proposed distribution of
CMI stock to current Citadel stockholders and to new investors in CMI as described below i.e.,
Crestview Radio Investors, LLC ("Crestview"), investors acquiring stock through MIHI, LLC
("MIHI"),4 and investors acquiring stock through UBS Securities, LLC ("UBS")5 the new
stockholders will acquire control of CMI from its current owners.


1 By Public Notice dated April 14, 2011, the Bureau announced permit-but-disclose ex parte status for the
applications. Citadel Broadcasting Corporation and Cumulus Media, Inc. Seek Approval to Transfer
Control of and Assign FCC Authorizations and Licenses,
Public Notice, 26 FCC Rcd 5916 (MB 2011). A
list of the stations that are the subject of the proposed assignments and transfers and, for each, its call sign,
community of license, facility ID number and assignment or transfer application file number is attached as
an Appendix hereto.
2 Specifically, the following licensees are subject to the proposed transfer of control: Radio License
Holding CBC, LLC; Radio Licensing Holding I, LLC; Radio Licensing Holding II, LLC; Radio License
Holding III, Inc.; Radio License Holding IV, LLC; Radio License Holding V, LLC; Radio License Holding
VI, LLC; Radio License Holding VII, LLC; Radio License Holding VIII, LLC; Radio License Holding IX,
LLC; Radio License Holding X, LLC; Radio License Holding XI, LLC; and Radio License Holding XII,
LLC, all indirect subsidiaries of Citadel (the "Citadel Subsidiaries"); Cumulus Licensing, LLC ("CLL"), an
indirect subsidiary of CMI; Susquehanna Radio Corp.; CMP KC Licensing, LLC; KPLX LICO, Inc.; and
KLIF LICO, Inc., all indirect subsidiaries of Cumulus Media Partners, LLC ("CMP").
CMP is a private partnership created in 2005 by CMI and Blackstone FC Communications
Partners, L.P. ("BFCCP"), Blackstone Communications, FCC L.L.C., Blackstone FC, Capital Partners IV
L.P., Blackstone FC Capital Partners IV-A L.P., Blackstone Family FCC L.L.C., and Blackstone
Participation FCC L.L.C. (collectively, "Blackstone"), Bain Capital Partners, LLC ("Bain"), and Thomas
H. Lee Partners, L.P. ("Lee"). CMP and its indirect subsidiaries, pursuant to prior staff grant of six pro
forma
applications, became wholly-owned subsidiaries of CMI on August 2, 2011, the date of
consummation (the "CMI Subsidiaries"). See File Nos. BTCH-20110214AEZ et seq., BTCH-
20110214AFX et seq., BTCH-20110214AGC, BTC-20110214AGD, BTCH-20110214AGE et seq.,
(granted on February 23, 2011) and BTCFT-20110215ADP & ADQ (granted on April 21, 2011. See Letter
to David M. Silverman, Esq., and Andrew S. Kersting, Esq.
, Reference 1800B3-BSH (MB Apr. 21, 2011)).
3 Two other entities, Cumulus Media Holdings, Inc. ("CMHI," fka Cadet Holding Corporation), a wholly-
owned subsidiary of CMI, and Cadet Merger Corporation ("Cadet"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of CMHI,
created for the purpose of effectuating the merger, are parties to the Merger Agreement. See "Agreement
and Plan of Merger," at p.1 and at Section 6.12; see also, e.g., File No. BTC-20110330ALU, as amended
on July 21, 2011, at Section II, Question 4, Exhibit 6 p.1. As described below, the transfer of control of
the Citadel Subsidiaries will be effectuated by the merger of Cadet with and into Citadel. Once this occurs,
the separate corporate existence of Cadet will cease, and Citadel will continue as the surviving licensee
corporation. Citadel will thus become a wholly-owned subsidiary of CMHI, which in turn, will continue to
be a wholly-owned subsidiary of CMI.
4 As described below, MIHI will be entitled to syndicate CMI Class A Common Stock to third parties (the
"Macquarie Investors"). See, e.g., File No. BTC-20110330ALU, as amended on July 21, 2011, at Section
II, Question 4, Exhibit 6, pp. 2-3.
5 UBS will also be entitled to syndicate to third parties (the "UBS Investors"). See id.

2.
Because the proposed transaction involves a greater-than-50% change in the
stock ownership of CMI and a transfer of control of CMI's 339 radio stations and Citadel's 228
radio stations, the parties have sought Commission approval of a substantial change in ownership,
requiring "long-form" applications pursuant to Section 309(c)(2)(B) of the Communications Act
of 1934, as amended (the "Act"), and Section 73.3540 of the Commission's Rules (the "Rules").6
Radio market overlaps in the holdings of the two companies will require that six radio stations be
divested to comply with the Commission's radio ownership rule.7 In addition, the proposed
transfer of control of CMI and Citadel to the new stockholders of CMI will terminate the
licensees' ability to maintain certain grandfathered ownership interests in another eight radio
stations in seven markets that do not comply with that rule. To resolve these issues, the captioned
applications include applications for consent to the proposed assignment of a total of 14 radio
station licenses to a divestiture trust for sale to an independent third-party or third-parties (the
"Trust Applications").8 Volt Radio, LLC ("Volt") is Trustee of the RLH Divestiture Trust, and
its sole member is Scott Knoblauch. Citadel and CMI would hold no interest in this trust, which
is insulated from their control in accordance with the Commission's insulation criteria. The
Applications are the subject of Comments which do not oppose the proposed merger.9
3.
In addition to Commission review, the proposed transaction is subject to review
by the U.S. Department of Justice ("DOJ") in cooperation with the Federal Trade Commission
under the federal antitrust laws.10 On September 8, 2011, DOJ filed a Complaint and related
filings that are in the nature of a consent decree (collectively, "Consent Decree") with the U.S.
District Court for the District of Columbia.11 Based on the Consent Decree and effective as of
September 12, 2011, the Federal Trade Commission announced early termination of the antitrust
review of the proposed transaction.12 As set forth in the Consent Decree, DOJ stated that it would
not oppose the merger of CMI and Citadel if the companies divested three stations -- WCAT-FM,
Carlisle, Pennsylvania; WWKL(FM), Palmyra, Pennsylvania; and WRSR(FM), Owosso,

Impact Statement, and Preservation of Assets Stipulation and Order collectively as the "Consent Decree"

Michigan -- to an independent third party or parties. To that end, the Consent Decree requires the
Applicants to file an application with the Commission to assign the license of one of those
stations, WRSR(FM), to Potential Broadcasting, LLC ("Potential Broadcasting"), as Trustee of
the PB Divestiture Trust. Edward N. Esserman is the sole member of Potential Broadcasting.
Because, as described above, the Applicants have applied for the licenses of the other two stations
(WCAT-FM and WWKL(FM)) to be assigned to Volt in order to comply with the Commission's
multiple ownership radio rule, for those stations, the Consent Decree requires that applications be
filed to allow Volt to assign the licenses to Potential Broadcasting. The Consent Decree also
requires that Potential Broadcasting be permitted to provide programming to the stations pursuant
to time brokerage agreements until the station licenses are assigned to it.
4.
For the reasons stated below, we grant the Applications and the Trust
Applications, subject to the condition that CLL, Susquehanna Radio Corp., CMP KC Licensing,
LLC, and Radio License Holding CBC, LLC, divest the 14 radio station licenses specified in the
Trust Applications to the insulated trust prior to or simultaneously with the consummation of the
Applications.
5.
Finally, we note that, prior to the consummation of the proposed transaction, it is
possible that license renewal applications will need to be filed for certain stations that are the
subject of this transaction in several jurisdictions. Commission policy permits the processing of
multi-station, multi-market transfer of control applications that involve a subset of stations with
pending renewal applications if: (1) there are no basic qualifications issues outstanding with
respect to the transferor and transferee; and (2) the transferee explicitly agrees to stand in the
shoes of the transferor in any renewal proceeding that is pending at the time of consummation of
the transfer of control.13 The transferees have agreed to succeed to the transferors' position with
respect to any future renewal proceeding consistent with the procedures set forth in Shareholders
of CBS Corporation
.14
6.
Additionally, two stations with currently pending license renewal applications,
WJXY-FM, Conway, South Carolina, and WXJY(FM), Georgetown, South Carolina,15 are being
assigned to Volt. In cases involving the assignment, as opposed to transfer, of a broadcast
station's license while the station's license renewal is pending, the Commission has stated that, so
long there is no question as to the assignor's basic qualifications, this situation is not analogous to
those in which the Commission first resolves a challenge to the licensee's qualifications before
acting on an application for assignment. Until determination of the future use of the WJXY-FM
and WXJY(FM) frequencies, all that is assignable is the right to continue operation of those
stations pending action upon their license renewal applications, but that much is assignable.16


13 See, e.g., Shareholders of CBS Corporation, Memorandum Opinion and Order on Reconsideration, 16
FCC Rcd 16072, 16072-73 (2001) (Commission will grant transfer of control applications during the
pendency of renewal applications so long as there are no basic qualification issues pending against either
the transferor or the transferee that could not be resolved in the context of the transfer proceeding, and the
transferee "explicitly assents to standing in the stead of the transferor in the renewal proceeding").

The applications currently are unopposed, although petitions to deny may be filed until November
1, 2011.17 In an amendment filed on August 31, 2011, the assignee of WJXY-FM and
WXJY(FM), Susquehanna Radio Corp., explicitly agreed to succeed to the assignor's position
with respect to any pending or future renewal proceeding consistent with these procedures.18

II.

PUBLIC INTEREST ANALYSIS

7.
Section 310(d) of the Act provides that no station license shall be transferred or
assigned until the Commission, upon application, determines that the public interest,
convenience, and necessity will be served thereby.19 In making this assessment, the Commission
must first determine whether the proposed transaction would comply with the specific provisions
of the Act, other applicable statutes, and the Rules.20 If the transaction would not violate a statute
or rule, the Commission considers whether it could result in public interest harms by substantially
frustrating or impairing the objectives or implementation of the Act or related statutes.21 The
Commission then employs a balancing process, weighing any potential public interest harms of
the proposed transaction against any potential public interest benefits.22 The applicants bear the
burden of proving, by a preponderance of the evidence, that the proposed transaction, on balance,
would serve the public interest.23 If the Commission is unable to find that the proposed

18 See File No. BAL-20110331AKA, as amended on August 31, 2011, at Exhibit 12.
19 Section 310(d) requires that the Commission consider the applications as if the proposed transferee were
applying for the licenses directly. 47 U.S.C. 310(d). See SBC Communications Inc. and AT&T Corp.

transaction serves the public interest, or if the record presents a substantial and material question
of fact, Section 309(e) of the Act requires that the applications be designated for hearing.24
8.
CMI is a publicly-traded company in which Chief Executive Officer Lewis W.
Dickey, Jr., Executive Vice President John W. Dickey, and their father Lewis W. Dickey, Sr.,
collectively hold approximately 50.6% of the outstanding voting power of CMI's common stock.
CMI is the second-largest radio broadcaster in the United States based on station count,
controlling approximately 339 radio stations (92 AM, 247 FM) in 68 media markets.
Historically, CMI states that its strategic focus has been on mid-sized markets throughout the
United States, although 23 of these radio stations operate in the top-10 rated Arbitron markets.25
9.
Citadel is also publicly-traded and the third-largest radio broadcasting company
in the United States. No individual holder owns more than 4.99% of the outstanding common
stock. As of December 31, 2010, Citadel owned and operated 228 radio stations (62 AM, 166
FM) located in over 50 media markets. Seventeen of these radio stations operate in the top-10
rated Arbitron markets.26
10.
CMI and Citadel have entered into an agreement contemplating a merger
transaction by which CMI would acquire Citadel's radio stations in exchange for cash or stock27
(or a combination of both) to be distributed to Citadel's current shareholders for each share of
Citadel stock. After the merger and transfer of control, CMI will remain a publicly-traded
company whose stock will be held as follows: (a) the current holders of CMI stock will control
less than 50% of the CMI voting stock; and (b) the former holders of Citadel stock and warrants,
Crestview, the Macquarie Investors, and the UBS Investors, collectively, will hold a sufficient
number of shares to control more than 50% of the voting stock of CMI. The precise amount of
CMI stock to be distributed to Crestview, the Macquarie and UBS Investors will be determined
shortly before consummation of the proposed merger.
11.
The proposed transaction will be accomplished as follows: The first step
involves transferring the stock of the Citadel Subsidiaries from Citadel to the entity formed by the
merger of Cadet, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CMHI, with and into Citadel. The second step
involves the merger of the surviving Citadel into CMHI, a wholly-owned subsidiary of CMI. The
third step involves the distribution of the stock of CMI not held by Citadel or CMI investors to
new investors. In that third step, the new investors28 along with the former holders of Citadel

HDO,
17 FCC Rcd at 20574 25; see also, e.g., Existing Shareholders of Clear Channel Communications,
Inc.,
Memorandum Opinion and Order, 23 FCC Rcd 1421, 1423 3 (2008).
25 See CMI's 2010 Annual Report, SEC Form 10-K, filed Mar. 14, 2011, at 3 and 34.
26 See Citadel's 2010 Annual Report, SEC Form 10-K, filed Mar. 30, 2011, at 5.
27 The Class A Common Stock of CMI, which includes voting rights, is publicly-traded and is held by,
among others, various investment companies, insurance companies, or other institutional investors. CMI
states that to its knowledge, all of the institutional investors hold less than 20% of CMI's Class A Common
Stock, and none of them has any influence, either directly or indirectly, over the management or operation
of CMI or the CMI Subsidiaries. All of the Class C Common Stock of CMI, which is not publicly traded,
is held by Lewis W. Dickey, Jr. Each share of Class C Common Stock has 10 votes. See, e.g., File No.
BTC-20110330ALU, as amended on July 21, 2011, at Section IV, Question 6, Exhibit 16, p. 6, n.1.
28 In addition to the holders of Citadel Common Stock and Citadel warrants, shares of CMI Class A
Common Stock will be distributed to the following new investors: (1) Crestview based upon its investment
of between $225 million and $250 million; (2) MIHI will acquire warrants for CMI Class B Common Stock
(continued . . .)

shares and warrants29 will acquire more than a 50% interest in CMI.30 Accordingly, the proposed
merger involves a "substantial change in ownership" of the Citadel and CMI Subsidiaries'




(Continued from previous page)
or Preferred Stock (neither of which has voting rights) in exchange for $80 million and be entitled to
syndicate to the third party Macquarie Investors up to $45 million of CMI Class A Common Stock; and (3)
UBS will be entitled to syndicate to the third party UBS Investors up to $125 million of CMI Class A
Common Stock. MIHI cannot acquire CMI Class A or Class B Common Stock in its own name; it can only
acquire warrants for non-voting Class B Common Stock or non-voting Preferred Stock. UBS can only
acquire warrants for Class B Common Stock in its own name. In no event will the Macquarie or UBS
Investors be allowed to receive more than 4.99% of CMI Class A Common Stock, and investors who are
not United States Citizens will be entitled to acquire only warrants for non-voting CMI Class B Common
Stock. See, e.g., File No. BTC-20110330ALU, as amended on July 21, 2011, at Section II, Question 4,
Exhibit 6, pp. 2-3 and nn.3-4.
29 Because no current Citadel stockholders hold more than 4.99% of Citadel's Class A Common Stock, and
because Citadel's holdings in CMI will be diluted by the addition of the Crestview, MIHI, and UBS
investors, there is no expectation, to CMI's knowledge, that any holder of Citadel voting stock will hold
more than 4.99% of CMI's Class A Common Stock. Under the Merger Agreement, Citadel stockholders
and warrantholders holding Citadel non-voting Class B Common Stock can elect to acquire CMI's Class A
Common Stock. The parties indicate that there is no way to determine whether the holders of Class B
Common Stock or holders of warrants for Class B Common Stock will elect to acquire shares of CMI Class
A Common Stock that would exceed 4.99% in any one instance. However, the Merger Agreement entitles
CMI to limit or withhold the distribution of Class A Common Stock if it would place CMI or any
stockholder in violation of any Commission rule or policy. See, e.g., File No. BTC-20110330ALU, as
amended on July 21, 2011, at Section II, Question 4, Exhibit 6, p. 2 at n.2.
30 As noted earlier, the precise amount of stock to be distributed to new investors will not be known until
sometime shortly before consummation of the proposed merger. For illustrative purposes, the parties
provide a percentage range of voting interest shares that can be distributed (with the actual distribution of
shares and warrants depending on the individual shareholder's cash/stock elections). Under a "maximum
cash" plan, CMI voting interest shares will be owned : (1) 18.7% by CMI (Dickey Family (as defined in
12 infra) 9.4%; Bank of America 0.7%; all others 8.1%; dilutive shares (options and warrants) 0.4%); (2)
1.5% by CMP (this percentage will be distributed prior to closing to Blackstone, in conjunction with the
consummation of the transfer of control of CMP to CMI); (3) 41.1% by Citadel (of which only 3.6% is
Class A Common Stock); (4) 25.8% by Crestview; (5) 0.0% by Macquarie Investors (investment is in
"preferreds" which is not reflected in total shares); and (6) 12.9% by UBS Investors. Additionally, Bank of
America would receive 100% of the outstanding Class B non-voting stock, the Dickey Family would
receive 100% of the outstanding shares of Class C Common Stock (entitled to 10 votes per share), and Bain
and Lee each would receive 50% of Class D non-voting stock (a new class of non-voting shares issued as
part of the CMP acquisition). The Dickey Family also would receive 10.8% of the outstanding warrants
specifically to acquire shares of CMP Susquehanna Radio Holdings, Corp., a CMP subsidiary. See, e.g.,
File No. BTC-20110330ALU, as amended on July 21, 2011, at Section II, Question 4, Exhibit 6, at
Attachment B, "Pro Forma Ownership: Max Cash -- $30.00/$7.00."
The parties also provide a "maximum equity" plan with the following distribution (with the actual
distribution of shares and warrants depending on the individual shareholder's cash/stock elections) under an
alternate plan, pursuant to which CMI voting interest shares will be owned: (1) 13.8% by CMI (Dickey
Family 7.0%; Bank of America 0.6%; all others 6.0%; dilutive shares (options and warrants) 0.3%); (2)
1.1% by CMP (this percentage will be distributed prior to closing to Blackstone, in conjunction with the
consummation of the transfer of control of CMP to CMI); (3) 54.9% by Citadel (of which only 4.8% is
Class A Common Stock); (4) 17.2% by Crestview; (5) 3.4% by Macquarie Investors (investment is in
"preferreds" which is not reflected in total shares); and (6) 9.5% by UBS Investors. Additionally, the
distribution of Class B non-voting stock, Class C Common Stock, and Class D non-voting stock is the same
as above. See, e.g., File No. BTC-20110330ALU, as amended on July 21, 2011, at Section IV, Question 6,

broadcasting stations.31 It therefore requires "long-form" transfers of control of both groups of
radio stations.

12.
Upon consummation of the proposed transaction, no individual stockholder will
hold 50% or more of the votes of CMI stock, regardless of the elections made by Citadel
stockholders and warrantholders. CMI's Board of Directors (the "Board") will consist of its
existing five members and two additional Crestview representatives appointed by the existing
board. However, certain parties i.e., members and affiliates of the Dickey family, including
DBBC, L.L.C. (collectively, the "Dickey Family"), BA Capital Company, L.P. ("BACC") and
Banc of America Capital Investors SBIC, L.P. ("BACI," with BACC, referred to collectively as
the "BofA Entities"), Crestview and Blackstone have entered into a letter agreement to
negotiate a "Stockholders Agreement" at closing to address, inter alia, the nomination of
candidates for members of the Board who may be elected at future stockholder meetings. The
parties to the proposed Stockholders Agreement collectively will control less than 50% of the
CMI stockholder votes. 32 It is contemplated that the Stockholders Agreement will establish a
procedure for those parties to nominate a slate of director candidates to be presented at such
stockholder meetings. The slate of nominees would consist of two candidates selected by
Crestview and one each by the Dickey Family, Blackstone, and the BofA Entities.33 The other
director candidates would be the current two independent directors (or their successors). The
right of Crestview, the Dickey Family, Blackstone, and the BofA Entities to select candidates to
be on the slate of director nominees would be subject to each of them continuing to own a certain
percentage of CMI Class A Common Stock.34 With respect to the BofA Entities, the parties aver
that no person nominated by the BofA Entities to be a CMI director will be an employee or agent


31 47 U.S.C. 309(c)(2)(B); see Reading Broadcasting, Inc., Decision, 17 FCC Rcd 14001, 14017 44
(2002).
32 We note, however, that Crestview, Blackstone, the BofA Entities and the Dickey Family have agreed to
vote, either in person or by proxy at any meeting in which directors are to be elected, in favor of the
director candidates nominated by the Board. See, e.g., File No. BTC-20110330ALU, Exhibit J at
Attachment 7, "Letter Agreement" at Exhibit A 2. Thus, we find that, although these parties will not be
able to collectively dictate who will sit on the Board, they do possess sizeable voting power as a group,
perhaps more than 30%, collectively. See n. 30 supra.
33 The parties state that the Blackstone entity that will be a party to the Stockholders Agreement and thus
will control the director nomination rights to be held by Blackstone is BFCCP. The parties note that the
limited partners of BFCCP have been insulated from attribution in accordance with the Commission's rules
and thus will have 0% voting interest while holding a 99% equity interest. In addition, the parties state that
BCMA FCC, LLC ("BCMA") is the general partner of BFCCP and that BCMA will control the voting
rights of CMI stock and the Board nomination rights of BFCCP. BFCCP and BCMA are under the sole
control of Stephen A. Schwarzman. See, e.g., File No. BTC-20110330ALU, as amended on July 21, 2011,
at Section IV, Question 6, Exhibit 16 at n.6 and at pp. 21-23, nn.26-33.
The rights of BFCCP and Blackstone to select a candidate to be on the slate of Board nominees
will cease upon the earlier of: (a) the day immediately following the date directors elected at the third
annual meeting of CMI stockholders held following January 31, 2010, commence their terms; and (b) such
time as Blackstone ceases to beneficially own at least one-half of the number of shares of CMI Class A
Common Stock it receives at the closing of CMI's acquisition of CMP. See, e.g., File No. BTC-
20110330ALU, as amended on July 21, 2011, at Section IV, Question 6, Exhibit 16, p. 8; see also, e.g.,

of the BofA Entities without prior notice to the Commission. We will impose a condition on our
grant of the Applications prohibiting the BofA Entities from nominating an employee or agent of
the BofA Entities to the Board. With that condition, the BofA Entities will retain non-attributable
status with respect to CMI's media interests under the Commission's multiple ownership rule. 35
13.
After the merger and divestiture, the new shareholders of CMI will hold equity in
the licensees of its radio stations through several subsidiaries: (a) the CMI Subsidiaries, which
will continue to own and operate 328 radio stations in 68 Arbitron markets; and (b) the former
Citadel Subsidiaries, now CMI Subsidiaries, which will continue to own and operate 225 radio
stations in 50 Arbitron markets.
14.
Free Press Comments. The Applications are unopposed, but are the subject of
Comments filed on May 13, 2011, by Free Press. Free Press does not request that the
Commission deny the transaction and acknowledges that CMI is not seeking a waiver of any
Commission rule or policy and that the proposed transaction is otherwise in compliance with the
Commission's local radio ownership policy.36 Nevertheless, Free Press asks that the
Commission "not measure this merger based on mere compliance with the FCC's media
ownership limits . . . . [I]t must closely scrutinize the proposed transaction and demand evidence
of specific public interests benefits as required by the . . . Act."37 In response, CMI and Citadel
each argue separately that Free Press' Comments do not purport or attempt to comply with the
petition to deny requirements of Section 309(d)(1) of the Act and that the Applications should be
granted.38 In addition, CMI and Citadel also reject Free Press' assertion that the Applications
should be required to meet a standard other than compliance with existing law and regulation.39
Finally, CMI contends that the Commission has repeatedly affirmed the reasonableness of the
ownership limits in the local radio ownership rule in advancing the public interest; Citadel argues
that compliance with the Act and the Rules is the measure of whether the public interest would be
appropriately served by grant.40
15.
We find that Section 310(d) of the Act, as implemented by the processing
procedures described in Paragraph 7 above, provides the appropriate standard of review for
transfer and assignment cases.41 In particular and as noted above, Section 310(d) requires that
applicants show that the proposed transaction would serve the public interest. Although Free
Press does not contest the grant of the Applications, the public interest concerns addressed in Free
Press' Comments are noted and discussed below.

Local Radio Ownership Rule Concerns. The CMI Subsidiaries and Citadel are
direct competitors in very few markets. As a result, only six stations in four markets will be
divested due to radio market overlap.42 As structured here and conditioned below, the proposed
transaction complies with our local radio ownership rule, Section 73.3555(a)(1). In addition, the
proposed transfer of control of CMI and Citadel to the new stockholders of CMI will terminate
the licensees' ability to maintain certain grandfathered ownership interests that do not comply
with the Commission's current multiple radio ownership rules.43 Eight stations in seven markets
are impacted by the loss of grandfathered status. To resolve this issue, CMI and Citadel have
filed the Trust Applications to divest their attributable interests in the following radio markets:
(a) one FM station in the Kansas City, Missouri, radio market;44 (b) one AM station in the
Montgomery, Alabama, radio market;45 (c) one FM station in the Fayetteville, Arkansas, radio
market;46 (d) one FM station in the Macon, Georgia, radio market;47 (e) one FM station in the
Savannah, Georgia, radio market;48 (f) one AM station in the Columbus-Starkville-West Point,
Mississippi, radio market;49 and (g) two FM stations in the Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, radio
market.50 The proposed assignee in all cases is Volt as Trustee of the RLH Divestiture Trust. As
a result of the assignment of these stations to Volt in its capacity as trustee, CMI will not hold
grandfathered interests that exceed the local radio ownership limits.51 Thus, approval of the Trust
Applications herein and compliance with the conditions set forth in this Order will resolve all
issues of compliance with the local radio ownership rule by CMI.52


42 The combined ownership interests of CMI and Citadel present an issue under 47 C.F.R. 73.3555(a)(1)
in four Arbitron markets: New York City, New York; Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas; Nashville, Tennessee; and
Harrisburg-Lebanon-Carlisle, Pennsylvania. To comply with that rule, the parties propose to divest the
following stations to trusts: WELJ(FM) in the New York City, New York market; KKLF(AM) in the
Dallas-Ft. Worth, Texas market; WRQQ(FM) and WNFN(FM) in the Nashville, Tennessee market; and
WCAT-FM and WWKL(FM) in the Harrisburg-Lebanon-Carlisle, Pennsylvania market.
43 2002 Biennial Regulatory Review, 18 FCC Rcd at 13809-1 487 ("Grandfathered combinations, by
definition, exceed the numerical limits that we find promote the public interest as related to competition. . .
. Unlike our decision not to require existing station owners to divest stations, here, the threat to competition
is not outweighed by countervailing considerations. Buyers will be on notice that ownership combinations
must comply [with the new ownership rules] at the time of acquisition of the stations"); see 47 C.F.R.
73.3555, Note 4 (the multiple ownership rules will apply to all applications for assignment or transfer).
44 Station KMJK-FM, North Kansas City, Missouri.
45 Station WNZZ(AM), Montgomery, Alabama.
46 Station KYNF(FM), Prairie Grove, Arkansas
47 Station WROK-FM, Macon, Georgia.
48 Station WTYB(FM), Bluffton, South Carolina.
49 Station WKOR(AM), Starkville, Mississippi.
50 Stations WJXY-FM, Conway, South Carolina and WXJY(FM), Georgetown, South Carolina.
51 See n. 42 supra (listing the stations being placed in the same divestiture trust to comply with the radio
ownership rule).
52 As described above, the Applicants have entered into a Consent Decree with DOJ that provides that two
of the stations that are being assigned to Volt (WCAT-FM, Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and WWKL(FM),
Palmyra, Pennsylvania) should be assigned to a different divestiture trustee, Potential Broadcasting, and
that Potential Broadcasting will provide programming for these stations pursuant to time brokerage
agreements until those assignments are complete. See 3 supra. Without prejudging the qualifications of
Potential Broadcasting, we find that in these circumstances, Volt's compliance with these terms of the
Consent Decree does not violate its duty to operate the stations until it can sell them to an independent
third-party or third-parties.

Other Public Interest Issues. We conclude that the applicants are fully qualified
and that grant of the transfer of control of the Citadel broadcast stations to the Transferees,
subject to the conditions set forth in this Order, will serve the public interest, convenience, and
necessity. We have reviewed the Applications, the Trust Applications, and related pleadings and
conclude that grant of the applications as conditioned herein will comply with the Act and the
Rules. We also conclude that the proposed transaction as conditioned herein will not be
anticompetitive. As stated above, there is very little overlap between the radio markets in which
the Citadel and CMI Subsidiaries stations operate. After considering the divestiture conditions
being imposed here to improve competition in certain radio markets and the divestiture of the
additional station being required by the DOJ, we find no evidence in the record that the proposed
transaction will harm competition in any radio market. In fact, the merger will improve
competition in a number of local markets by requiring CMI and Citadel to divest certain
grandfathered ownership interests that exceed the ownership limits adopted in the 2002 Biennial
Regulatory Review
, as set forth in Section 73.3555(a)(1) of the Rules.53 We conclude that the
merger's structural changes provide a sufficient basis to make the requisite public interest finding.
However, we also note that CMI identifies other public interest benefits that would result from
the merger, including additional funding for programming to better serve local audiences and
increased investment in digital radio equipment.54 We agree that such benefits, when
implemented, will augment the public interest benefits of the proposed transaction. Thus, based
on the record before us, we believe that granting consent to the proposed transaction, subject to
the conditions imposed here, will serve the public interest.
18.
To ensure compliance with the local radio ownership rule, we will impose a
condition requiring that CMI's and Citadel's divestiture of the 14 stations to Volt pursuant to the
Trust Applications occur prior to or simultaneously with the consummation of CMI transfer of
control. Volt is encouraged to take reasonable steps to market the trust stations to businesses
owned by women and minorities, and it is required to take commercially reasonable efforts to
effectuate a sale of the stations without delay.55 If Volt has not submitted complete assignment of
license applications for the sale of the stations within six months of the consummation date, it
must provide the Commission with a detailed explanation of its efforts to sell the stations in the
confidential report referenced in Section 4(g) of the Trust Agreements submitted with the Trust
Applications. Subject to the conditions discussed herein, we find that the proposed merger
transaction complies with the Act and the Rules and serves the public interest, convenience, and
necessity. Accordingly, we grant the Applications and the Trust Applications.

III.

CONCLUSION

19.
We have reviewed the proposed merger, the applications for its approval, and
related comments. We conclude that the applicants are fully qualified and that grant of the


53 See Prometheus Rehearing Order and Prometheus 2011 Order.
54 See Declaration of Lewis Dickey, Jr., CEO and President of CMI, attached as Exhibit 1 to CMI
Response.
55 As explained above, we provide an exception for the two stations that the Consent Decree provides will
be assigned to Potential Broadcasting. Also, the Trust Agreements provide that CMI or Citadel may re-
acquire one or more stations in trust if the Trustee determines there has been a change in circumstances that
permits such ownership under applicable Commission rules and policies. We find that this provision does
not violate Section 73.1150 of our Rules because it is based on the Trustee's independent assessment and
decision. See 47 C.F.R. 73.1150.
