Cherry Creek Proceeds With EAS Plans

<p><span style="font-size:10.0pt;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">Cherry Creek Radio, like many broadcast groups, has placed its EAS orders and is awaiting delivery.</span> <div>&#160;</div> <div><span style="font-size:10.0pt;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">Travis Cronen tells me the 60-station owner has placed the order for the necessary gear and is expecting it soon. </span><span style="font-size:10.0pt;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">A few of its locations have already been updated.</span></div> <div>&#160;</div> <div><span style="font-size:10.0pt;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">EAS decisions at the company are made by Ken Eklund, the director of engineering, and by Cronen, the director of operations &amp; IT. The company has standardized on Sage gear and purchased 20 units this year from SCMS.</span></div> <div>&#160;</div> <div><span style="font-size:10.0pt;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">The company owns stations in Montana (</span><span style="font-size:10.0pt;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">Butte, Great Falls, Helena, Missoula, Sidney); Colorado (La Junta, Lamar, Montrose); California (Lake Tahoe, Campo/San Diego); Utah (St. George, Cedar City); Arizona (Sierra Vista); Texas (Stephenville, Comanche); Washington (Tri Cities, Wenatchee); and North Dakota (Williston).</span></div> <div>&#160;</div> <div><span style="font-size:10.0pt;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">Any special considerations or problems upgrading the EAS infrastructure? </span></div> <div>&#160;</div> <div><span style="font-size:10.0pt;Times New Roman&quot;,&quot;serif&quot;">“Network routing and port forwarding through firewalls,” Cronen said. “Nothing major.”</span></div> </p>
