By Lance Venta on February 1, 2018
Cumulus Media and Merlin Media’s hearing over the termination of the LMA and sale of Classic Rock “97.9 The Loop” WLUP and Alternative 101.1 WKQX Chicago has been adjourned one week to February 8 at 2:00pm.
Merlin filed to the court on Monday that it is in the “process of working with the Debtors on a negotiated resolution of all business and legal issues between Merlin and the Debtors related to the agreements, including a cooperative, interim agreement facilitating transition of the Stations back to Merlin and/or a new owner. The adjournment is solely as it relates to the Talent Agreement with WLUP Morning Host Mancow Muller meaning that all other issues between the companies have been settled other than coming to terms with a new deal or separation agreement with Muller.
The court has approved Cumulus’ termination of 14 other contracts
