“Going through a radio station sale can be an unpleasant experience,” said Twin Islands partner Chris Roth. “Of course, none of us like that – so we’re not gonna make it unpleasant! Our goal is to have fun, make great radio and have fun. In that order. We love what Greg Bojko has done, and we plan to grow more from the incredible foundation that he has put down for us.”
