Commenting on third quarter 2013 results, the Company’s President and Chief Executive Officer Vincent L.

Excluding record political revenues and our estimate of incremental Olympic revenues in 2012, core advertising revenues increased 3% on a same station basis in the third quarter. Looking forward, our long-term strategy and the increased demand for our innovative multiscreen advertising solutions position us well for the remainder of 2013 and the political year ahead."
