Red Zebra Broadcasting, the new broadcasting venture formed by Washington Redskins owner Dan Snyder and headed by broadcasting executive Bennett Zier, has purchased three stations from Mega Communications Inc.: WBPS(FM), WBZS(FM) and WKDL(AM) for an undisclosed price.
"This is the first of many acquisitions for Red Zebra Broadcasting - we are in the buying business," said Zebra CEO Bennett Zier, former regional vice president of Clear Channel Communications' Washington/Baltimore stations.
Red Zebra Broadcasting will be the broadcast home of the Washington Redskins, managing the broadcast rights to the Redskins, starting with the 2006 season.
The acquisition gives the new broadcast group an initial presence on both FM and AM radio in the Washington area. In the near future, additional decisions about format and programming changes will be made.
Red Zebra Broadcasting will identify, purchase and run broadcast properties, including radio, television and the Internet. The company aims to build a network locally in its hometown market of Washington, and then expand regionally and nationally.
