Max Media, LLC logo

Max Media is a company that owns radio and television stations throughout the United States. It is based out of Virginia Beach, Virginia.

History

Max Media was founded in 2001. Prior to this, some of the company's management had run the TVX Broadcast Group from 1979 until its sale to Paramount Communications (who renamed it the Paramount Stations Group) in 1991, and Max Media Properties (similarly named to the current company) from then until its sale to the Sinclair Broadcast Group (which owned some former TVX stations) in 1998.

On September 30, 2013, the Cowles Publishing Company acquired Max's Montana television station cluster for $18 million.[1][2] On October 31, 2013, Sinclair acquired the non-license assets of WPFO for $13.6 million; the deal made it a sister station to WGME-TV, which already produced a newscast for the station.[3] On November 20, it was announced that Cunningham Broadcasting will acquire the license assets for $3.4 million. [4]

On January 9, 2014, Max Media sold its six Arkansas-based radio stations to Bobby Caldwell's East Arkansas Broadcasters for $3 million.
