2011 Annual Highlights

  • Station expenses increased 2% to $262.6 million
  • Station operating income decreased 10% to $120.1 million

  • Free cash flow decreased 16% to $73.0 million

David J. Field, President and Chief Executive Officer stated: “2011 was a year of extensive strategic investment for Entercom, during which we launched four new station brands and established FM simulcasts of three core AM stations in San Francisco, Boston, Sacramento, Kansas City and Buffalo. These moves significantly enhance our future growth potential and are expected to contribute positively to revenue growth commencing in second quarter. However, they diluted our fourth quarter revenues by 4%. Excluding political and stations reformatted in 2011, fourth quarter revenues were flat. We are optimistic on 2012 growth, bolstered by improving economic conditions, accelerating performance from newly reformatted stations, and political advertising. And we are highly encouraged by strong industry fundamentals as innovation accelerates, audience usage trends remain outstanding, and radio remains the most cost-effective major advertising medium.”
