The Binghams dominated Louisville's media landscape by controlling the major daily newspaper, plus the most popular radio and television stations. WHAS-AM and WAMZ-FM were sold for slightly more than $20 million to Clear Channel Communications of San Antonio, the fifth and sixth stations to join its burgeoning portfolio.
