The Year in Sales

By SCOTT FYBUSH

2015-yirtop

It's time once again for our Year in Review, the 22nd time we've gathered up our headlines from the previous 12 months and tried to sum it all up for you. Year in Review installments will appear daily beginning today through our wrap-up on Thursday, December 31, so check back every day for a new installment. We'll resume our regular NorthEast Radio Watch report on Monday, January 4, 2015, and Tower Site of the Week is back this Friday to ring in the New Year. (And in the meantime, our own Twitter and Facebook feeds and RadioInsight will be here with any breaking news!)


We start, as we always do, with sales: for a long time now, this has been the only place that collects a full year's worth of station sale data for the region in one convenient spot, and we continue that tradition as we look back on 2015, month by month.

It was a strange year for sales - not many big ones, to be sure, but lots of activity lower down on the price scale, including some surprisingly low prices for AM signals and some surprisingly high ones for translators as the market tried to sort itself out ahead of a pair of translator major-change windows in 2016.

(As always, Fybush Media is available and eager to help station owners and would-be owners navigate their way through those complex minefields...)
