Management Discussion
  • Total revenues increased $42.9 million in the first quarter of 2021 compared to the same period in 2020. The net increase was primarily due to a $53.9 million increase in subscription revenue, primarily due to annual rate increases under existing and newly renegotiated retransmission agreements. In addition, AMS revenue increased $27.7 million, reflecting an increased demand for advertising, and incremental revenue from the Super Bowl (which aired in 2021 on CBS and therefore reached more than 30% of TEGNA’s households, as compared to 2020 when the game aired on Fox, which reaches fewer than 6% of TEGNA’s households). These increases were partially offset by a decrease in political revenue of $38.0 million, following a presidential election year.
