​Lola Montgomery Leaving KSJJ/BEND, and Radio

Bend Radio Group Country KSJJ/Bend, OR midday personality Lola Montgomery has announced her resignation from the station, and radio all together.
On her Facebook page Today (4/28), Montgomery posted, “After 29 years in radio, I am handing in my resignation and leaving radio -- it is bittersweet. I am so completely thankful for you and your support throughout my 29 years … Sean and I are starting a second business on The Rogue River in Galice, OR. We will be doing shuttling for the rafters and parking on a commercial piece of property, and eventually we will offer rafting trips on The Rogue. We will work six months out of the year, and then we will hit the road and travel, selling Lola's Rapid Relief at festivals and events. We will also be near Sean's dad and uncle BoB, and we will be free of the daily grind. I love you all, and because of your support of our pain cream, we are able to live our dreams.”

Montgomery
joined the Bend Radio Group in 2013, first with AC KMGX/THE NEW MIX 100.7, eventually segueing to KSJJ for middays. Her radio resume includes middays at Alpha Broadcasting KUPL/ Portland, OR and Entercom KKWF/Seattle. No word yet from KSJJ on her final day there or plans to fill middays.

​Today is JD Cannon's Last Show on WLHK

Emmis Country WLHK/HANK FM/Indianapolis MD/afternoon personality JD Cannon has already signed off for the final time. And by this time next week, Cannon and his wife Sylvia will be relaxing on a cruise ship. Cannon announced his retirement in February, thus ending a 40 year career in radio that includes two CMA Personality of the Year trophies, another from the ACM, and a 2004 induction to the Country Radio Hall Of Fame.

What does retirement mean to Cannon? He will no longer work full-time at HANK FM, but will emcee station events and handle an occasional fill-in shift. A large number of industry friends gathered in Indianapolis on Wednesday Night (4/26) to celebrate Cannon. He is regarded as one of the nicest, most gracious human beings on planet earth. Today’s Indianapolis Star features Cannon, noting his 34-year run with Cumulus Country WFMS from 1977-2011, then a seamless transition to Emmis crosstown WLHK.


In a letter of goodbye to Indianapolis Country radio fans, Cannon left listeners with this final message:
  “I hope our paths will cross again soon. Don’t blink! Life goes faster than you think.”

Reuters Report: Group Of iHeartMedia Lenders Has Agreed To Oppose Company's Debt Restructuring

Reuters is reporting that a group of iHeartMedia's lenders has agreed to oppose the broadcaster's debt restructuring bid.  

Reuters' sources say that the creditors represent over half of the holders of the present term loans and want the company to either improve the debt swap offer on the table now or come up with an entirely new plan.
iHeartMedia's present plan is a pair of debt swaps that would extend the maturity of iHeart's $20 billion debt further into the future and cut the overall debt by up to $4.3 billion, but the lenders have thus far mostly declined to agree to the proposals. The deadline for tendering for the swaps is currently the end of business today, the result of two earlier extensions.

Covenant Review Head of High Yield Research Anthony Canale told Reuters
that the lenders don't think the offers in the current proposal are high enough and called iHeartMedia's behavior "extremely aggressive, and may have resulted in some hurt feelings and emotions that may be further complicating this."

In a preliminary statement of financial results for first quarter, iHeartMedia indicated that it "will continue to incur net losses and generate negative cash flows from operating activities given iHeartCommunications’ indebtedness and related interest expense," and said that its final financial statement for first quarter will "include disclosure indicating there will be substantial doubt as to our ability to continue as a going concern for a period of 12 months following the date the first quarter 2017 financial statements are issued as a result of uncertainty around our ability to refinance or extend the maturity of our receivables based credit facility, to achieve our forecasted results, and to achieve sufficient cash interest savings from the pending Exchange Offers and Term Loan Offers."

DOJ Sends 'Second Request' That Could Delay Entercom-CBS Radio Merger

The DOJ has served Entercom and CBS a “request for additional information," which may slow down the mega merger of Entercom with CBS Radio.

In a form 8-K filing with the Securities And Exchange Commission, Entercom wrote, "On April 19, 2017, Entercom Communications Corp. received a request for additional information and documentary material, often referred to as a 'second request,' from the United States Department Of Justice (the “DOJ”) in connection with the Company’s previously announced Agreement and Plan of Merger (the 'Merger Agreement') entered into with Constitution Merger Sub Corp., a Delaware corporation and wholly owned subsidiary of the Company, CBS CORPORATION, a DELAWARE corporation ('CBS'), and CBS Radio Inc., a Delaware corporation and an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of CBS ('CBS Radio'), to combine with CBS’s radio business in a two-step all stock 'Reverse Morris Trust' transaction."


Entercom explained,
"The second request was issued under the Hart-Scott-Rodino Antitrust Improvements Act of 1976, as amended (the “HSR Act”). CBS received an identical request for additional information and documentary material from the DOJ about the Transactions. Consummation of the Transactions is conditioned on expiration of the waiting period applicable under the HSR Act, among other conditions.

"Issuance of the second request extends the waiting period under the HSR Act until 30 days after all parties to the Merger Agreement have substantially complied with the second request, unless the waiting period is terminated earlier by the DOJ or the parties voluntarily extend the time for closing. The Company continues to anticipate that the Transactions will be complete.
