In 2009, Cumulus Media swapped five Green Bay market stations to Clear Channel in exchange for a pair of stations in Cincinnati. While Cumulus continued to operate the Green Bay stations via LMA, Clear Channel had a put agreement in the contract allowing them to require Cumulus to repurchase the stations between July 1 and September 1, 2013 for the set aside price of $17,636,643.
