SELIGMAN, Arizona – Every once in a while, our travels coincide with a very slow holiday news week, and so we’re taking what we hope is a well-deserved week off from our full NERW report.

We’ll be back in action on Monday, July 15. In the meantime, Lance Venta’s never sleeps – and so we suggest you head over there for any breaking news, and to catch up on the handful of big news stories that did make headlines this past week while we were on the road:

Emmis sells (most of) WBLS and WQHT in New York to a new equity group

Cox’s new ownership takes shape

FCC reinstates NY, NH FM allocations, deletes a silent VPR license and a PA school station

Entercom cuts include WPHT PD

Townsquare moves Albany’s ALT
