Footnotes to Financial Highlights Table

1) References to "pro forma" in this press release reflect to the completion of the CMP acquisition in August 2011, the Citadel merger in September 2011, and the net impact of the Company's July 2012 sale of 55 stations in eleven non-strategic markets to Townsquare Media LLC ("Townsquare") in exchange for Townsquare's radio stations in Bloomington, IL and Peoria, IL, plus approximately $114.9 million in cash (the "Townsquare Asset Exchange").   Results of operations of each of the Company, CMP, Citadel, and the Bloomington and Peoria stations acquired in the Townsquare Asset Exchange are included for all periods presented.  The 55 stations sold to Townsquare are accounted for as discontinued operations; as such, Revenue and Adjusted EBITDA for all periods presented exclude the results of these disposed assets.  Pro forma presentation of all completed transactions is a key metric for purposes of calculating and determining our compliance with certain covenants contained in our first lien credit facility. For additional information about pro forma financial information presented herein, including the material assumptions related thereto, see "Supplemental Unaudited Pro Forma Financial Information" below.

2) Adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow are not financial measures calculated or presented in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America ("GAAP"). For additional information, see "Non-GAAP Financial Measures" and "Reconciliation of Non-GAAP Financial Measures to Most Directly Comparable GAAP Measures" below.
