    Disney Announces Details of ABC Radio Spinoff/Merger

    On Friday, the Walt Disney Company announced the terms of the previously announced deal to sell its ABC Radio Holdings to Citadel Broadcasting.

    At the close of business on June 6, 2007, Disney shareholders will receive shares of the newly spun off ABC Radio Holdings company, which will then be immediately sold to Citadel. As the end result, Disney shareholders will receive approximately 0.0766 shares of Citadel stock for each share of Disney stock they own. The entire transaction is expected to be completed on June 12th.

    The deal only affects Disney's ABC Radio group. Disney will retain ownership of ESPN Radio and Radio Disney.

    Yes, and its Los Angeles "sister station" KABC AM 790, KGO 810 San Francisco, and all other Disney/ABC "O&O" (owned and operated) stations around the country. ABC Radio News too.

    KSPN (ESPN Radio 710) operates out of the same building as KABC/KLOS in the Culver City area...and the local Radio Disney outlet - AM 1110 (mostly a computer, with sales and office staff) is housed there too...They'll likely be looking for a new place...

    May 26th - Tommy2.Net (the biggest change for employees)

    Yesterday Citadel and the Walt Disney Company announced that the merger/takeover of ABC Radio will be final on June 12th. Citadel will become the owner of all ABC stations with the exception of ESPN & Radio Disney. One of the biggest changes it will present ABC Radio employees is having to give up their Silver Pass that provides free entrance to the Walt Disney Theme Parks and a generous 35% discount.

    Ouch! That's more insulting than getting kicked out of your own building on La Cienega!

    I just got my shareholder's prospectus and it is alot to read! And honestly, i am just trying to wrap my head around it! Even in short defined form, i kinda don't get it.

    hmm, okay, so Disney is selling all of its Radio holdings including Radio Disney? I am lost!
    Disney is the only stock i own
    It was a gift from my mom for being accepted into the Disney College Program!

    I just got my prospectus too. Whew.

    Here's the simple version:

    Multiply the number of Disney shares you have by 0.0766. This is how many shares of Citadel stock you'll receive. Any fractional portion (the number to the right of the decimal place) will be multiplied by Citadel's price per share (currently 8 bucks and change) at the close of business on 6/6. You'll receive a check for that amount.

    Congrats on your Disney College Program. Welcome to the wonderful world of high finance.
