The main reason Pandora wanted to own the station was to skirt around the ASCAP fees by saying it should be charged the same fees as radio stations - not a pure-play streaming company - now that it was a broadcaster. That did not work out. The Oxenford letter says Pandora is "reevaluating its broadcast strategy."
