The August 24 issue of SNL Kagan’s Broadcast Investor: Deals & Finance announced mid-year Broker Rankings. Media Services Group claimed top spot as the media broker which handled more transactions than any other (16 deals representing 30 stations), almost two-to-one over the firm next in line.
According to MSG’s Managing Director, George Reed, “We are pleased to have led the industry in completed transactions. Historically, we have occupied that spot in the rankings. Though station trading remains lukewarm, we did sixteen deals in the first six months of this year.”
