EMF’s In The Loop As A Chicago Legend Bids Farewell


It was the intention of Cumulus Media to acquire two radio stations in the Windy City from Merlin Media. However, Cumulus’ financial difficulties led to the eventual dismantling of a deal that would have seen it obtain WKQX-FM “Q101” and WLUP-FM 97.9.
