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

Excluding political revenues, we increased net revenues by 20% in the fourth quarter and 35% for the full year. Looking ahead, we are confident in the evolution of our company and our ability to capitalize on our recent acquisitions, this year's non-presidential elections and the winter Olympics. We are particularly excited about expanding our digital media portfolio with Federated Media, which is the largest digital acquisition in our company’s history."
