Cox Radio, Inc. is a division of Cox Enterprises that holds a number of radio stations. Cox Radio is headquartered at 6205 Peachtree Dunwoody Road in Sandy Springs, Georgia.[1]

Cox Radio, Inc. operates, acquires and develops radio stations primarily in markets ranked 10-70 based on revenues. Cox Radio owns, operates or provides sales and marketing services to 80 stations in 18 markets. This radio portfolio includes 67 FM stations and 13 AM stations. In 15 of its 18 markets, Cox Radio operates three or more stations.[citation needed]

Through its syndication division, it also produces the Neal Boortz and Clark Howard programs, including one hour of Boortz that is exclusive to Cox-owned stations.[2]

Cox Radio became a public company, majority owned by Cox Enterprises, in 1996. Around April 2009, Cox Enterprises proposed a $69 million United States dollar takeover offer of Cox Radio. The offer expired on May 1, 2009.[3] The offer was later raised to $4.80 a share, and the expiration was pushed to May 13.[4] The offer was accepted, and the acquisition was completed on June 1[5].
