    From Radio Insight: Family Stations Inc. is selling the five acre tower site of “Family Radio” 1560 WQEW New York to logistics real estate operator Prologis for $51 million. Commercial Observer reports that Prologis will utilize the land for parking and storage explaining that industrial site operators are looking for more space for last-mile logistics. The land in Maspeth, Queens is located in the middle of an industrial park. As part of the sale, Family Radio will continue to operate WFME’s 50kW signal from the three tower array until they relocate to a new facility. Family Stations acquired 1560 and the tower land from Radio Disney in 2015 for $12.9 million to return their programming to the market following the 2013 sale of 94.7 WFME Newark NJ to Cumulus for $40 million and 106.3 Mount Kisco NY. Disney had purchased the station in 2007 from The New York Times Company for $40 million after leasing the signal for nine years. more

    From Radio Insight: Nielsen Audio has released Day 2 of its monthly four day sweep of ratings in PPM markets. Today’s releases include Washington DC, Boston, Miami, Seattle, Detroit, Phoenix, Minneapolis, San Diego, Tampa/St. Petersburg, Denver, Baltimore, and St. Louis. All the numbers can be found at RadioInsight.com/Ratings. We’ve launched our newly enhanced ratings pages. With the assistance of Ratings Expert Chris Huff our ratings tables now feature the monthly ratings for the past six months, current CUME, station owner, format, and brand name. The ratings pages will also feature Huff’s exclusive HuffNotes spotlighting records, trends, and changes. The build-up to the 2020 election continued to give boosts to a number of Talkers across the country. Public News/Talk “CPR News” 90.1 KCFR Denver rises 6.9 to 7.9 for what Huff note’s is the highest share in the history of the station. iHeartMedia Conservative Talk “Freedom 93.7” 760 KDFD rises 3.8 to 4.2, but co-owned News/Talk 850/94.1 KOA slides 2.1 to 1.7. iHeartMedia Conservative Talk 550 KFYI Phoenix jumps to the top of its market with a 5.8 to 7.5 gain.

The success at most of the format did not take place in St. Louis. Entercom Conservative Talk “97.1 FM Talk” KFTK-FM dropped 5.5 to 4.9 and Public News/Talk 90.7 KWMU held steady at 2.6. But Entercom News/Talk 1120 KMOX has tumbled 6.7 – 5.2 – 3.9 for what Huff notes is a record low in the history of the station.

    From Radio Insight: Cumulus Cincinnati Regional Vice President and Market Manager Dave Crowl has announced he will retire from a 44 year career at the end of the year. A native of Dayton, Crowl has led Cumulus Cincinnati since 2012 after previously holding executive positions at Great American Broadcasting, Jacor and iHeartMedia. He has also served as General Manager at WLVQ Columbus, KKRZ Portland, and WLZR Milwaukee. Crowl also served on the Board of Directors for Board of Directors of the Radio Advertising Bureau from 1991-2006 and was chairman from 2001-2003. Longtime radio broadcasting executive and industry leader Dave Crowl, Regional Vice President and Market Manager-Cumulus Cincinnati, has announced his retirement after a successful 44-year career. Crowl will depart at the end of the year. During his career, Crowl was responsible for the operation of radio station groups in 147 markets, ranging in size from Chicago, IL, to Hillsboro, OH. A native of Dayton, OH, he began his esteemed career in 1977 as Account Executive at WLVQ-FM in Columbus, OH, after earning a B.S. degree in Journalism from Bowling Green State University. 18 months later, he was promoted to WLVQ Sales Manager and in 1979, he rose to WLVQ General Manager at age 25. In 1984, Crowl’s career took him to Portland, OR, where he was Vice President and General Manager of KKRZ, changing the station’s format from Soft AC to Top 40/CHR and attaining a #2 market rank for the station in less than a year. He then headed to Milwaukee, WI, as Vice President/General Manager of WLZR-FM, flipping the station from Country to Album Rock in 1987 and debuting The Bob and Brian Show, which continues to be the #1 morning show in Milwaukee. Crowl’s career continued to ascend, and in 1991, he became President of Great American Broadcasting’s Radio Division, and then President of Jacor Communication’s Radio Division after the company’s (then Citicasters) acquisition by Jacor. In 2000, he was appointed Senior Vice President of Clear Channel Communications (now iHeartMedia), before joining CUMULUS MEDIA in 2012 as Regional Vice President and Market Manager for Cumulus Cincinnati. Crowl was also Acting General Manager of Cumulus Indianapolis from 2014-2016. A deeply committed media professional, Crowl served the radio industry as a member of the Radio Advertising Bureau’s Board of Directors from 1991-2006, leading the Board as Chairman from 2001-2003. He was also a member of the Ad Council’s Board of Directors from 2000-2002. He served the University of Cincinnati School of Media as a member of its Advisory Council from 1998-2010. Crowl commented: “A 44-year career in radio would have been challenging to achieve without the support of my family, mentors, colleagues and friends who constantly inspired me. More importantly, I could not have arrived at this moment without the foundation of all the many dynamic general managers and their market teams who delivered compelling audio content to their listeners, communities and advertisers every day 24-7.” He noted: “No matter the market size, I have had the good fortune of working with the very best program directors, local personalities, news people, sales managers and account executives in radio. In addition, no success ever occurred without the dedicated efforts of so many chief engineers, accounting teams,*promotions people and traffic continuity managers.*I am indebted and deeply grateful to you all.*And to all of my national sales partners at Eastman and Katz over the years, thank you for your excellence. I also want to thank Mary Berner, Dave Milner and everyone at*Cumulus*for their tremendous support of the*Cincinnati*operating cluster*these last several years.*Finally,*to my entire team at Cumulus Cincinnati, I will always*cherish your good work*and all*of our*accomplishments.” Mary Berner, President and CEO, CUMULUS MEDIA, said: “Dave Crowl has distinguished himself as one of the most respected leaders in radio, dedicating the last 44 years to making radio the best it could be for the many communities he has served so well. In the process, he has lifted up our industry and the people in it, always treating others with respect, dignity and understanding. He will be greatly missed, and we wish him all good things in his retirement.” Dave Milner, EVP, Operations, CUMULUS MEDIA, remarked: “I’ve had the good fortune of working with Dave multiple times throughout my career, and not only is he one of the most successful and passionate leaders in radio, he retires having helped so many others thrive. I’m excited for Dave and wish him much happiness as he enters this new chapter in his life.” Crowl is a second-generation radio broadcaster. His father, H.K. ”Bud” Crowl*owned radio stations WAVI and WDAO*in Dayton, OH, for 30 years. more
