The radio business is pretty cut and dry. You have overhead and you sell advertising to make the income.

Business knowledge will not help you as much as legal knowledge. Since you are going out on the public airwaves, you face many restrictions. One person that you might talk to is, of all people, your representative in congress. I only suggest this because the Latin spin (get it?, spin . . . radio, I made a funny. That's a joke, son) might enable you to get a license faster and cheaper since it is minority oriented. I think someone did a TV station around here like that.

The only thing about radio is that the locally owned stations are going by the way-side. The profit would probably more in selling something that you started than running something that you started.
