Alfred C. Liggins, III, Radio One‘s CEO and President stated, “Overall I am pleased with our Adjusted EBITDA2 growth of 19.5% for the quarter, which demonstrates the benefits of our diversification strategy. Radio advertising markets have been choppy, with a slowdown in June that took our core radio revenues from low single digit positive to a –0.6% finish. July core radio station net revenue was +5.0% and Q3 is currently pacing up low single digits. TV One posted robust revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth, up approximately 17.0% and 22.3% respectively, and Household ratings in prime were up 15%. Our Interactive One business performed well, with positive Adjusted EBITDA of $507,000 compared to a loss of $475,000 for the same period last year, and remains on target to hit break-even for the year. The Tom Joyner Fantastic Voyage was a success, and helped propel Reach Media to a positive Adjusted EBITDA of approximately $1.9 million, which was a welcome turn-around from last year’s comparable loss of $89,000.”
