Financial report summary

Tribune Media
Management Discussion
  • Revenue. Total revenue increased $16 million, or 3%, to $534 million in the 2020 three-month period. Total revenue increased primarily due to political advertising revenue that increased by $33 million, resulting primarily from 2020 being the “on-year” of the two-year election cycle. Retransmission consent revenue increased by $9 million. Combined, local and national revenue decreased by $11 million in the 2020 three-month period and production company revenue decreased by $18 million. We attribute these decreases primarily to the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic which has affected our customers and our sports and event programming. Local and national revenue from the broadcast of the 2020 Super Bowl on our FOX-affiliated stations was approximately $3 million, compared to $5 million that we earned from the broadcast of the 2019 Super Bowl on our CBS-affiliated stations.
