This blog is devoted to owners of radio/TV stations or persons interested in getting into ownership.
As a station broker, I constantly look for deals which might be ideal "first stations" for first-time-buyers.  I would like to highlight some of these here.  Most of these opportunities include the possibility of owner financing. Confidentiality requires the descriptions to be generic, but if you are interested, contact me for an NDA.
