Tom will go over those activities in just a few moments.Next, our generated total first quarter net revenue of $83.6 million, which as I mentioned is 19.6% rise from the year-ago period, with the increase being broad-based with strong growth in local, national, political, retrans, e-Media and our revenue from management fees. Nexstar's continued leadership in new business development resulted in a 7.8% rise in first quarter local and national revenue, inclusive of 5% increase in local and 15.6% rise in national spot revenue.
