PLUS LIABILITIES? THEY'RE NOTHING BUT LIABILITIES! I can't find any information about Media Americas Corp, even on Google(tm), but the word "Americas" with plural spelling sounds suspiciously like Spanish-language or even Portugues language programming. WWZN just adopted a Jeff Santos-for-six-hours-a-day format. Could that be reduced to ZERO?

>From what I read about this, the new owners were the managers under Blackstrap.  So it’s possible there will be little if any change in the programming.
