Public Media Company is the nation’s leading firm in assessing and securing station opportunities on behalf of the public broadcasting system.
Since our founding, we have assisted organizations in preserving and expanding public media access for more than 72 million Americans in markets across the country. Having structured more than $320 million in station acquisitions and financings, Public Media Company has a deep understanding of how to assist organizations in planning for and executing strategies to achieve sustainable growth and increasing public media services to their communities.
Whether acquiring a new station, merging with another organization, or establishing a strategic partnership, Public Media Company’s process is the same: We vigorously represent the interests of our clients throughout the entirety of the transaction process by identifying and analyzing the opportunity; preparing a business model and appraisal to confirm the viability of the project; establishing a negotiating strategy with the organization’s leadership; managing the negotiations and due diligence process; coordinating with the respective attorneys; assisting with the public relations strategy; and if necessary, securing capital to consummate the deal.
If you would like to discuss a potential project, please free to email Erik Langner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
“Finding stations with the right coverage area at the right price is difficult under the best circumstances and even more challenging in a market like the Bay Area. We had the radio and deal-making expertise of Public Media Company supporting us throughout. We are thrilled with the tremendous audience response, making KDFC’s transition to a listener supported public radio station a resounding success.”
– Brenda Barnes, President, KUSC San Francisco
Public Media Company represented KUSC as they planned for and expanded to San Francisco by acquiring three stations to deliver classical music to the region.
