All statements and comments made by management during this conference and other statements of historical fact may be deemed forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 21 of the Securities Act of 1933 and Section 21A of the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934. The company's future financial conditions and results of operation, as well as forward-looking statements, are subject to change. The forward-looking statements and comments made during the conference call are made only as of the date of today's conference call.

In compliance with Regulation G, reconciliations of this non-GAAP statement and GAAP measurements are included in today's news announcement. The company does not undertake any obligation to update forward-looking statements reflective of changes and circumstances. In addition, given Nexstar's announcement of July 21, 2011, that the company's Board of Directors decided to explore and evaluate strategic alternatives intended to maximize shareholder value, including a possible sale of the company, Nexstar does not intend to disclose developments with respect to the strategic review process until such time as the Board of Directors has approved a transaction or otherwise deems disclosure appropriate. As such, management will not be making comments on this topic today.
