Radio Giant Audacy, Files for Bankruptcy Protection.
Audacy, which owns over 200 radio stations around the country, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection in the Southern District of Texas on Jan. 7, CNBC reports. .

sustained macroeconomic challenges over
the past four years facing the traditional
advertising market has led to a sharp
reduction of several billion dollars
in cumulative radio ad spending, David Field, CEO of Audacy, via statement.

Filing for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection will allow the Philadelphia-based company to cut its debt load by about 80%, CNBC reports. .
That would bring its total debt load
from approximately $1.9 billion to
$350 million if approved by the court. .
Audacy is considered to be "one of the top radio broadcasters in the U.S," CNBC reports.
It is second only to iHeartMedia,
according to CNBC.
Some of its most notable stations
include L.A.'s KROQ and New York's
1010 WINS and WFAN Sports Radio
