The network, which hoped to buy 10 stations from the Children's Broadcasting Network for $57 million, finally settled for seven of the stations for $37 million in a deal completed Nov. 6, said network chief executive John Lynch of San Diego.

The financially troubled Catholic Family Radio Network is looking for a buyer and could go off the air soon if no one is interested, an investor said.
