It actually makes a lot of sense. The AM is an afterthought now. 105.9FM is the cash cow, not the AM.
If you assume the above is credible, moving The Score to 104.3 and selling off 670 AM would make sense too, rid themselves of the bloat it takes to run an AM.
But I doubt they can get more than 7 million for 780 AM especially since it is now diplexed. 670 AM can probably get 8 or a bit more. AM signals are dogs these days. The daytimers are going dark and the 50KWs are not what they once were. WABC in NYC, the #1 market which bills much more than Market #3 sold for 12.5 Million. Before anyone says I am wrong and they can fetch more, no they can't. Because it would be assumed the format goes with the current owner and a non compete is signed as the OP listed!
