Cox Media sells Greenville radio stations

Posted: Updated:

Cox Media Group has reached an agreement to sell radio stations in six of its markets, including its stations in Greenville.

The company announced Tuesday that it will sell WJMZ-FM and WHZT-FM in Greenville to Summit Media. Those stations are better known to listeners as 107.3 Jamz, 97.7 Chuck FM and Hot 98.1.

Cox said stations in Birmingham, AL, Hawaii, Louisville, KY and Richmond, VA, will also be sold.

The company will also sell three stations in southern Connecticut and contract rights to a fourth station in Connecticut to Connoisseur Media, based in Westport, CT.

In a release, company representatives said the sales are expected to be finalized in the second quarter after regulatory approvals.

It is unclear how much the stations are being sold for.

The Atlanta-based company announced a broadcast realignment plan in July of 2012.
