Tracking Transaction Activity

BIA tracks the value of transactions and volume of sales in TV and radio both monthly and year-to-date basis. Check here monthly for updated information.

BIA’s Chief Economist and SVP, Mark Fratrik’s take on current transaction marketplace:

“As we progress thru the pandemic, station sales have been weak, both in terms of the number and value. If the economy rebounds quicker, as the recent employment data suggests, we would expect that the station selling market also will rebound. Opportunities might exist for strong radio and television groups to acquire stations that might not have fared well during this time.”
