Separation complete – Westwood One stands alone


Westwood One announced after the stock markets closed Monday that it had closed its transactions with CBS Radio to end CBS management of WW1, but continue WW1’s rights to distribute CBS Radio programming and have access to ad inventory on CBS Radio stations through March 2017 (10/3/07 RBR #193).
