Cox Media selling Greenville radio stations

Posted: Updated:

Atlanta-based Cox Media Group has announced they are selling their Greenville-based radio stations, as part of a move to focus on larger markets.

The move was announced Friday. The Atlanta Business Chronicle reported that Cox Media is currently in the process of buying several television stations across the country in an effort to also increase cross-media collaboration.

The local stations set to be sold include:

-107.3 JAMZ (WJMZ-FM, licensed to Anderson)

-HOT 98.1 (WHZT-FM, licensed to Seneca, with a translator at 94.1 in Greenville)

-97.7 Chuck FM (a translator of WJMZ-HD3 in Greenville)

The stations may be licensed to different areas of the Upstate, but are all run out of Cox Media Group's offices in downtown Greenville.

The radio stations are among over two dozen Cox Media plans to sell nationwide, from Virginia to Hawaii. The group is also selling four television stations.

There is no word yet on who will buy the stations.

The Greenville-Spartanburg metropolitan radio market, which officially covers Greenville, Spartanburg, Anderson and Pickens counties, is the 60th largest radio market in the country.
