CEO Comment

Perry A. Sook, Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Nexstar Broadcasting Group, Inc., commented, “Nexstar’s growth and operating momentum is accelerating in 2013 and we remain confident that continued year-over-year growth in all of our non-political revenue sources in the second half of the year will result in record annual revenue and free cash flow. Reflecting contributions from recently completed acquisitions as well as our focus on managing operations for current cash flow and future growth, all of our non-political revenue sources posted significant second quarter increases leading to record second quarter net revenue, adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow. Nexstar’s year-to-date results and contributions from new stations are as expected and we look forward to the completion later this year of the accretive acquisition of nineteen television stations which was announced in April.
