The Company reported operating income of approximately $21.8 million for the three months ended September 30, , compared to operating income of $21.5 million for the same period in 2012. Net loss was approximately $13.2 million or $0.28 per share compared to a net loss of $13.1 million or $0.26 per share, for the same period in 2012.

Alfred C. Liggins, III, ’s CEO and President stated, “Overall I am pleased with our 12.5% increase in adjusted 2. Our radio , including Reach Media, grew revenues by 3.4% year-to-year despite the toughening political comparatives. Propelled by strong summer ratings, TV One posted revenue and adjusted EBITDA growth of 13.7% and 37.2% respectively, and our internet division showed solid progress. Excluding political, our Q4 radio revenues are currently pacing up mid-single digits. Despite the $6.1 million of cyclical political revenue that we booked in Q4 , we expect Q4 radio revenues to finish approximately flat, which will be quite an achievement given that 2012 was a record year for our political revenues. As a result of our EBITDA growth, we have steadily been improving our leverage profile, and for the first time since Q1 2009, our total leverage ratio as measured by our credit agreement has dropped below 7.0x; our focus remains to continue this positive trend.”
