Discussion and Results

"During the second quarter, we continued to execute our plan to strengthen our multi-media platform, while carefully managing our costs," commented Raul Alarcón, Jr., Chairman and CEO. "The advertising environment was mixed, but we were able to offset some of the weakness at the national level through increased local and interactive sales. We also made significant progress in reducing the operating loss at our television operations. Looking ahead, our station brands remain strong, and we are continuing to expand our interactive footprint and build on our revitalized sales force. We also remain well positioned to attract our share of political dollars in the second half of the year given our leading audience shares in the nation's top-ten Hispanic markets."
