Dan Halyburton has made an investment in Falls Media, LLC. The former president of RadioTime (now TuneIn), market manager for Emmis Communications, New York, and senior vice president and group manager for Susquehanna Radio Corporation’s 22 radio stations joins the company as vice president.
Falls Media owns adult hits KWFB(FM) and top 40 KXXN(FM), located in the Wichita Falls, Texas, market.
Halyburton will leave his present position in business development with CBS’s Texas State Networks in August. He will share management duties for the company’s stations with Falls Media president and co-founder Dan Balla.
The company will now seek additional capital, and focus on strategic acquisitions.
Falls Media was formed in 2008 with the purchase of KWFB, and the company was then successful in raising funds from a local investor group to purchase KXXN in 2012.
