MSG Media revenues for the fourth quarter 2010 rose 12.1% to $144.1 million, primarily driven by affiliate fee revenue growth. Affiliate fee revenues increased $12.5 million compared to the year-ago period, largely attributable to higher contractual affiliation rates. Advertising revenues increased $3.9 million compared to the year-ago quarter. AOCF increased 25.4% to $51.7 million and operating income rose 32.5% to $46.7 million, both as compared to the fourth quarter of 2009. The increases in AOCF and operating income primarily reflect the growth in affiliate fee and advertising revenue, partially offset by higher direct operating and selling, general and administrative expenses.
