Entercom is a radio network of more than 235 radio stations that boast a monthly audience of over 170 million.

Though, they could contain the attack and resume their services from Monday, September 23, 2019, likely because of the small scale of the attack.

The second Attack In A Year The recent incident marked the second cyberattack on the firm in the same year.

In addition to the downed email system, there have been problems in some markets with a host of other systems the company relies on to conduct business, including its AudioVault automation system, music scheduling, computer networks, printers, billing, and other internal digital systems.

According to the Entercom CFO Richard Schmaeling, the September incident cost $1 million to the company, with a loss of $400,000 in revenue.
