 width= Reports Fourth Quarter 2010 Results
Adjusted Increases 28.2%

Previously announced transactions to create largest pure-play U.S. company-

Cumulus Media Inc. (NASDAQ: CMLS) today reported financial results for the three and twelve months ended December 31, 2010.

Lew Dickey, Chairman & CEO stated, “The previously announced transactions to acquire Media, as well our affiliate Cumulus Media Partners, will uniquely position us to aggressively compete in the nascent recovery in the local ad markets. This recovery is beginning to take root as evidenced by our Q4 results which demonstrate strong cash revenue and Adjusted EBITDA growth. Our Q4 performance capped a year of exceptional growth in our Adjusted EBITDA and cash flow, which enabled us to materially de-lever our balance sheet. We plan to continue de-leveraging both CMI and CMP as we anticipate closing the transaction later this year with the attendant global refinancing into onebalance sheet.”

The Three Months Ended December 31, 2010 Compared to the Three Months Ended December 31, 2009

Net Revenues

Net revenues for the three months ended December 31, 2010 increased $0.2 million, or 0.3%, to $69.8 million, compared to $69.6 million for the three months ended December 31, 2009. Cash revenue increased $3.8 million, or 6.2%, for the three months ending December 31, 2010, but was offset by a decrease in non-cash trade revenue of $3.6 million, or 45.6%, as compared to the three months ended December 31, 2009.

Station Operating Expenses

Station operating expenses for the three months ended December 31, 2010 decreased $5.0 million, or 11.4%, to $39.0 million, compared to $44.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2009. This change is primarily attributable to a $3.4 million decrease in trade expense.

Corporate, General and Administrative Expenses

Corporate expenses, including non-cash compensation expense for the fourth quarter of 2010 decreased $0.3 million, or 5.3%, to $4.7 million compared to $5.0 million in the same period in 2009.

Interest Expense, net

Interest expense, net of interest income, for the three months ended December 31, 2010 decreased $2.4 million, or 26.9%, to $6.6 million, compared to $9.0 million for the three months ended December 31, 2009. Interest expense associated with outstanding debt decreased by $0.8 million to $6.5 million, as compared to $7.3 million in the prior year period, primarily due to an increase in interest rates, partially offset by a decrease in the borrowing base under the senior secured credit facilities, due to the repayment of approximately $43.1 million of debt. The remaining decrease is primarily attributable to a $1.6 million change in fair value of the Company’s interest rate swap.

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures for the three months ended December 31, 2010 totaled $0.5 million. Capital expenditures during the quarter were comprised of $0.1 million of expenditures related to computer equipment and $0.4 million related to broadcast capital expenditures.

Leverage and Financial Position

Trailing twelve month adjusted EBITDA for bank covenant purposes was $87.8 million. After paying down a total of $43.1 million year to date on our senior debt, our Total Leverage was 6.76 times. We exceeded our Cash and Cash Equivalents covenant of $7.5 million by $5.3 million. Excluding this minimum Cash and Cash Equivalents requirement, our Net Leverage at quarter-end was 6.67 times.

Year Ended December 31, 2010 Compared to the Year Ended December 31, 2009.

Net Revenues

Net revenues for the year ended December 31, 2010 increased $7.3 million, or 2.8%, to $263.3 million, compared to $256.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2009, primarily due to an $8.6 million increase in national and political revenue, which was offset by a decrease of $1.3 million spread over the remainder of the revenue categories.

Station Operating Expenses

Station operating expenses for the year ended December 31, 2010 decreased $5.9 million, or 3.5%, to $159.8 million, compared to $165.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2009.

Corporate, General and Administrative Expenses

Corporate, general and administrative expenses for the year ended December 31, 2010 decreased $2.2 million, or 10.5%, to $18.5 million, compared to $20.7 million for the year ended December 31, 2009, primarily due to a decrease in non-recurring severance costs of $0.5 million and a decrease of $1.1 million in consulting and professional fees, with the remaining $0.6 million decrease attributable to reductions in miscellaneous expenses.

Impairment of Goodwill and Intangible Assets

The Company recorded approximately $0.7 million of charges related to the impairment of goodwill and intangible assetts for the year ended December 31, 2010, compared to $175.0 million for the year ended December 31, 2009. The impairment loss is related to the broadcasting licenses and goodwill recorded in conjunction with the Company’s annual impairment testing conducted during the fourth quarter.

Interest Expense, net

Interest expense, net of interest income, for the year ended December 31, 2010 decreased $3.7 million, or 10.8%, to $30.3 million compared to $34.0 million for the year ended year ended December 31, 2009. While overall interest expense decreased, the interest expense associated with outstanding debt increased by $4.0 million to $26.0 million as compared to $22.0 million in the prior year period. This increase was primarily due to an increase in interest rates, partially offset by a decrease in the borrowing base under the senior secured credit facilities, due to the repayment of approximately $43.1 million of debt. Additionally, interest expense increased by $1.4 million related to the yield adjustment on the Company’s interest rate swap. These increases were offset by a $9.1 million decrease in the fair value of the interest rate swap/option agreement.

Capital Expenditures

Capital expenditures for the twelve months ended December 31, 2010 totaled $2.4 million. Capital expenditures during the year were comprised of $0.6 million of expenditures related to computer equipment and $1.8 million related to broadcast capital expenditures.

Cumulus Media Partners (CMP); Pending Acquisition of CMP

Non- Financial Measure and Definitions

The Company utilizes certain financial measures that are not calculated in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States (“GAAP”) to assess financial performance and profitability. The non-GAAP financial measures used in this release are station operating income, adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow. Station operating income consists of operating income before fees, depreciation and amortization, non-cash expenses (including stock compensation), realized loss on derivative instrument, and other corporate general and administrative expenses. Station operating income margin is defined as station operating income as a percentage of net revenues. Adjusted EBITDA is defined as operating income before fees, depreciation and amortization, non-cash expenses (including stock compensation), realized loss on derivative instrument, and impairment of goodwill and intangible assets. Free cash flow is defined as operating income before non-cash expenses (including stock compensation), depreciation and amortization, and realized loss on derivate instrument, less net interest expense (excluding non-cash charge/credit for change in value of swap, and amortization of swap arrangements and amortization of debt issuance costs), income taxes paid and maintenance capital expenditures. Please see the attached tables for a reconciliation of these non-GAAP financial measures to their most directly comparable GAAP financial measures.

Station Operating Income

Station Operating Income consists of operating income before income tax expense, non-operating expenses including net interest expense, depreciation and amortization, LMA fees, non-cash stock compensation, corporate general and administrative expenses, the gain on exchange of assets or stations, the realized loss on derivative instrument, and impairment of goodwill and intangible assets. Station Operating Income should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, operating income (loss), cash flows from operating activities or any other measure for determining our operating performance or liquidity that is calculated in accordance with GAAP. We exclude income tax expense and non-operating expense including net interest expense because they are not direct operating expenses required to operate our stations. We exclude depreciation and amortization due to the insignificant investment in tangible assets required to operate our stations and the relatively insignificant amount of intangible assets subject to amortization. We exclude LMA fees from this measure, even though it requires a cash commitment, due to the insignificance and temporary nature of such fees. Corporate expenses, despite representing an additional significant cash commitment, are excluded in an effort to present the operating performance of our stations exclusive of the corporate resources employed. We believe this is important to our investors because it highlights the gross margin generated by our station portfolio. Finally, we exclude non-cash stock compensation, the gain on exchange of assets or stations, the realized loss on derivative instrument, and impairment of goodwill and intangible assets from the measure as they do not represent cash payments for activities related to the operation of the stations.

We believe that Station Operating Income is the most frequently used financial measure in determining the market value of a radio station or group of stations. We have observed that Station Operating Income is commonly employed by firms that provide appraisal services to the broadcasting industry in valuing radio stations. Further, in each of the more than 140 radio station acquisitions we have completed since our inception, we have used Station Operating Income as our primary metric to evaluate and negotiate the purchase price to be paid. Given its relevance to the estimated value of a radio station, we believe, and our experience indicates, that investors consider the measure to be useful in order to determine the value of our portfolio of stations. We believe that Station Operating Income is the most commonly used financial measure employed by the investment community to compare the performance of radio station operators. Finally, Station Operating Income is one of the measures that our management uses to evaluate the performance and results of our stations. Our management uses the measure to assess the performance of our station managers and our Board of Directors uses it as part of its assessment of the relative performance of our executive management. As a result, in disclosing Station Operating Income, we are providing our investors with an analysis of our performance that is consistent with that which is utilized by our management and our Board.

Station Operating Income is not a recognized term under GAAP and does not purport to be an alternative to operating income from continuing operations as a measure of operating performance or to cash flows from operating activities as a measure of liquidity. Additionally, Station Operating Income is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow available for dividends, reinvestment in our business or other Company discretionary use, as it does not consider certain cash requirements such as interest payments, tax payments and debt service requirements. Station Operating Income should be viewed as a supplement to, and not a substitute for, results of operations presented on the basis of GAAP. We compensate for the limitations of using Station Operating Income by using it only to supplement our GAAP results to provide a more complete understanding of the factors and trends affecting our business than GAAP results alone. Station Operating Income has its limitations as an analytical tool, and you should not consider it in isolation or as a substitute for analysis of our results as reported under GAAP. Moreover, because not all companies use identical calculations, these presentations of Station Operating Income may not be comparable to other similarly titled measures of other companies.

Adjusted EBITDA

Adjusted EBITDA is also utilized by management to analyze the cash flow generated by the Company’s business. This measure isolates the amount of income generated by its stations after the incurrence of corporate general and administrative expenses. Management uses this measure to determine the contribution of the Company’s station portfolio, including the corporate resources employed to manage the portfolio, to the funding of its other operating expenses and to the funding of debt service and acquisitions.

In deriving this measure, management excludes LMA fees, even though it requires a cash commitment, due to the insignificance and temporary nature of such fees. Management also excludes depreciation and amortization due to the insignificant investment in tangible assets required to operate its stations and corporate office and the relatively insignificant amount of intangible assets subject to amortization. Management excludes non-cash stock compensation from the measure as they do not represent cash payments for activities related to the operation of the stations. Management excludes gain on the exchange of radio stations as it does not represent a cash transaction. Management excludes realized loss on derivative instruments as it does not represent a cash transaction nor is it associated with station operations. Management excludes impairment of goodwill and intangible assets as it does not represent a cash transaction.

For covenant reporting purposes in accordance with the definition of “Adjusted EBITDA” in the credit agreement governing the Company’s senior secured credit facilities, adjusted EBITDA is further adjusted to exclude certain additional one-time and non-cash items from the calculation.

Management believes that adjusted EBITDA, although not a measure that is calculated in accordance with GAAP, nevertheless is commonly employed by the investment community as a measure for determining the market value of a radio company. Management has also observed that adjusted EBITDA is routinely employed to evaluate and negotiate the potential purchase price for radio broadcasting companies. Given the relevance to the overall value of the Company, management believes that investors consider the metric to be extremely useful.

Adjusted EBITDA should not be considered in isolation or as a substitute for net income, operating income, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure for determining the Company’s operating performance or liquidity that is calculated in accordance with GAAP.

Free Cash Flow

Free cash flow is also utilized by management to analyze the cash generated by our business. Free cash flow measures the amount of income generated each period that could be used to fund acquisitions after funding station and corporate expenses (excluding transaction costs), debt service, income taxes, and maintenance capital expenditures.

Management believes that free cash flow, although not a measure that is calculated in accordance with GAAP is commonly employed by the investment community to evaluate a company’s ability to pay down debt, pay dividends, repurchase stock and/or facilitate the further growth of a company through acquisition or internal development. Management further believes that free cash flow is also utilized by investors as a measure in determining the market value of a radio company. Free cash flow should not be considered in

isolation or as a substitute for net income, operating income, cash flows from operating activities or any other measure for determining the Company’s operating performance or liquidity that is calculated in accordance with GAAP.

As station operating income, adjusted EBITDA and free cash flow are measures that are not calculated in accordance with GAAP, they may not be comparable to similarly titled measures employed by other companies. See the quantitative reconciliation of these measures to their most directly comparable financial measure calculated and presented in accordance with GAAP that follows below.
