Good morning and thank you for joining us. The purpose of today’s call is to review Shentel’s results for the quarter ended March 31, 2012.

Please note that a replay of the call will be made available later today. The details were set forth in the press release announcing this call.
With us on the call today are Christopher French, our President and Chief Executive Officer and Earle MacKenzie, our Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer. After our prepared remarks, we will conduct a question-and-answer session.
I’ll begin with Slide 2 of the presentation.
