Three Months Ended June 30, 2012 Compared to Three Months Ended June 30, 2011

Net Revenues 

Net revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2012 increased $218.8 million, or 351.5%, to $281.0 million, compared to $62.2 million for the three months ended June 30, 2011. This increase reflects the impact of net revenues from Cumulus Media Partners, LLC ("CMP") and Citadel Broadcasting Corporation ("Citadel"), as well as a $2.7 million increase in political advertising. Revenue growth was partially offset by short term revenue impacts resulting from strategic format changes in some markets, general downward trends in the overall macroeconomic environment and reduced use of trade advertising on acquired stations. Additionally, management fee income decreased $0.8 million primarily related to the completion of the CMP Acquisition and related discontinuation of the CMP management agreement.
