Maverick Media of Lima LLC has announced the sale of its 5 local radio stations to Childers Media Group LLC (pending FCC approval). CMG LLC is led by their president, Matt Childers.

Maverick Media purchased the five radio stations in 2003. Those five stations include: 92.1 The Frog (WFGF), 93.1 The Fan (WWSR), 107.1 (WDOH), 104.9 The Eagle (WEGE), 940 WCIT.

“Maverick Media is proud of its partnership and community service with Lima and West Central Ohio. We have embraced the community and have been proud to play such a significant role in the daily lives of the community through informative and entertaining radio stations. Maverick Media has supported many events and countless charities in the area at large and I am confident that Matt and his team will continue to engage the entire community with compelling radio and the same level of service,” President and CEO of Maverick Media (Westport, CT) Gary Rozynek said.

“Matt has been a terrific leader of our Radio Group and has been an active ambassador for the Lima community,” Rozynek added. “West Central Ohio will certainly benefit even more by having true local ownership. Childers Media Group will be the only media company in the metro area that is locally owned and operated.”
Childers, 46, is the market manager for Maverick Media of Lima. He joined Maverick Media in 2004 and has been in the Radio/Media Business in West Central Ohio for the past 15 years and is the son of the late Gerald Allen Childers and Diane Durbin “DD” Childers, a lifelong resident of Lima since 1928.

Childers has built radio organizations that develop and distribute original programming with compelling on-air presence and a heavy emphasis on local news, entertainment, promotional events and concerts coupled with a focus on listener engagement and local high school, collegiate and professional sports.

Childers has also built sales organizations that strive to be its customers best marketing partner, all the while instilling the spirit of winning teamwork within the organization.

As the president of Childers Media Group (CMG LLC), Childers will continue to build on the great foundation Rozynek and Maverick Media provided in Lima.
“I am honored and thrilled to have the opportunity to continue the great example that Gary Rozynek and Maverick Media have provided in operating our radio stations. We have an incredible team and a staff that is dedicated to this community. We will continue to serve our community in the most informative, entertaining, professional and charitable way,” he said. “Our entire staff looks forward to serving our community in the most positive ways.”
