Clifton Gardiner & Company provides radio station valuations, nationwide

Clifton Gardiner & Company provides radio station valuations to owners, lenders and many others for a variety of requirements.  We can propose a valuation for any requirement, large or small.  We are well known and respected in the broadcast industry for the accuracy of our valuation reports.

For radio stations with little or no “cash flow” or operating income, a commonly accepted valuation method is Stick Value.  A stick valuation is based on the Population Covered by Station (POPS).  In our stick value reports we look at national POPS multiple for various sized markets, as well as a regional multiple based on actual recent station sales for the  surrounding states.

The Stick Value FMV report will provide an accurate value for any radio station without significant cash flow.

Our fee for the report is $750, and the report can typically be delivered in five days.  Additional stations for the same owner are $500 each. The fee will include a telephone review to answer any questions.

Please complete the form and submit it to us.   Payment is due when the order is submitted.


Fair Market Value (“FMV”) is generally defined as the cash, or cash equivalent, price for which a property would change hands between a willing buyer and a willing seller in an arm’s length transaction, both being adequately informed of the relevant facts, and neither being compelled to buy or sell.  In the absence of an actual sale, Fair Market Value may be estimated using industry accepted guidelines.
