Dean GoodmanDean Goodman’s Digity LLC has agreed to purchase Three Eagles Communications, which O&Os 48 stations in Nebraska, Iowa, Minnesota, and South Dakota. Said Goodman: “Digity is on-air, online, on-demand, on-location, and on-the-go.  It connects today’s busy consumers with content they want, people they trust, products they enjoy, and things that matter. We are very pleased to have signed the Three Eagles purchase, and Digity intends to continue to grow in all areas of its operations.”

Said Rolland Johnson, founder and CEO of Three Eagles: “I think it is an excellent time to be buying stations. Radio seems to have survived the perfect storm and should come out stronger than ever.” Johnson continued, “While on the NAB Board with Dean Goodman 10-12 years ago, Dean talked about his vision of buying stations and rolling them up into a diversified company.  It is great to have a vision like Dean’s and to be able to follow through with it. Dean is getting a group of hard-working people with award-winning stations who deserve a chance to participate in something as exciting as what Digity offers. I congratulate him on an excellent purchase.”
