Equity firm purchases Eagle

Staff writer

Eagle Communications, based in Hays and with customers throughout Marion County, has been bought by Chicago-based private equity firm GTCR.

The acquisition will include Eagle’s Internet broadband services, in Kansas, Nebraska, and Colorado, as well as several radio stations owned by Eagle.

Eagle vice president of broadband Travis Krohlus couldn’t be reached for comment.

The Internet company will be run through Mega Broadband Investments, a management startup established in 2017.

Eagle Communications is the second Internet provider bought by the firm. GTCR bought Northland Communications, which provided Internet and cable services in the western and southeast U.S.
