Chillum antenna farm trades hands as Redskins sell radio holdings

As part of Daniel Snyder’s liquidation of the Redskins’ radio broadcasting business, a large radio broadcasting facility in Chillum has been bought by the nation’s largest African-American-owned broadcaster. According to state property records, Urban One Inc. bought the 18.7-acre antenna farm at 6000 Ager Road in Chillum, near the West Hyattsville Metro Station, for $828,700 in a transaction recorded August 21, 2018. Silver Spring-based Urban One purchased the property from Red Zebra Broadcasting LLC, the Redskins’ radio media subsidiary. It’s part of a larger $4.2 million acquisition of Red Zebra’s assets by Urban One, according to Washington Business Journal. Snyder announced in May 2018 that the Redskins were liquidating its radio holdings.
