“We’re pleased with the growth we achieved this quarter, and continued to break new ground in enabling advertisers and partners to engage seamlessly across all of our diverse media platforms with the announcement of our creation of a new programmatic buying solution, which will bring the power of radio to advertisers through an automated, real-time ad buying platform,” said Bob Pittman, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer. “In addition, we continue to provide the most live entertainment – with more content and more events in more places on more devices – to the industry’s most engaged audiences, wherever they are. Last month, our second annual iHeartRadio Music Awards Show generated more buzz than ever with 14 billion social media impressions and was rated Number 1 for 18-49s across the Big 4 broadcast networks that night. At Outdoor, we couldn’t be more happy with our team and the strong momentum we gained in the first quarter.”

“We delivered strong year over year growth in both revenue and OIBDAN across the board in the first quarter,” said Rich Bressler, President, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Financial Officer. “We also continue to pursue transactions that streamline our balance sheet and maximize liquidity, as well as continually review our entire portfolio of assets to ensure we operate them in the most efficient way possible.”
