On the other side is the announcement from Unfair Park's across-the-street neighbor, which is about to scoot to Victory Park. Long story short: Cumulus Media is moving its four local radio stations, including The Ticket and KLIF, into 20,248 square feet of empty next door to the American Airlines Center. The release doesn't say when, but it won't happen till early next year.
Says Dan Bennett, the chain's local veep and marketing manager, "Victory Plaza is an ideal fit for our four great brands. The American Airlines Center attracts and hosts sporting and entertainment events that reinforce our sports and entertainment brands. The location is ideal and we look forward to joining WFAA-TV Channel 8 as co-media anchors of the growing Victory Park development."
