Petrus Holding Company, LP, a Perot Company, has joined with management to acquire Connoisseur Media, one of the nationís fastest growing media companies. Based in Westport, Connecticut, Connoisseur operates 42 radio stations and digital assets in 12 markets across the U.S. The existing management team will continue to operate the stations, with Petrus as their financial partner.
Connoisseur has expanded rapidly over the last several years and maintains a strong presence in the "Golden Ring" media market surrounding New York City, including Long Island, Connecticut and New Jersey.
Connoisseur Media NJ / PA General Manager Andrew Rosen is very excited about the changes. "This infusion of capital will allow Connoisseur Media to continue to invest in the resources that help us provide the best content for our audience," he said. "It will allow us to expand the tools for our advertisers to connect with potential consumers, to help the communities we serve and to retain, attract and develop the best talent."
