CH Media expands in the radio market

The media company CH Media takes over the three central Swiss radio stations Central, Sunshine and Eviva. The editorial departments will remain independent and the positions will be retained. The previous owner, Alfons Spirig, wants to save his life’s work for the future with the sale.

The takeover will be retroactive to January 1, 2022, the parties announced on Wednesday. CH Media, which already operates a station in the region with Lucerne’s Radio Pilatus, is thus expanding its private radio portfolio and strengthening its position in Central Switzerland. It was agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

The negotiations lasted several months, said the previous owner Alfons Spirig when asked by the Keystone-SDA news agency. As a small media company, it is difficult nowadays to keep up with developments in the areas of digitization, online and training, he explained the decision to sell, which was not easy for him.
