(1)

Operating expenses include direct operating, selling, general and administrative expenses. Included in operating expenses are $0.3 million and $0.2 million of non-cash stock-based compensation for the three-month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively and $0.6 million of non-cash stock-based compensation for each of the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011. Operating expenses do not include corporate expenses, depreciation and amortization, impairment charge, gain (loss) on sale of assets and gain (loss) on debt extinguishment.

(2)

Corporate expenses include $0.5 million and $0.3 million of non-cash stock-based compensation for the three-month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively and $1.1 million and $0.7 million of non-cash stock-based compensation for the nine-month periods ended September 30, 2012 and 2011, respectively.

(3)

Consolidated adjusted EBITDA means net income (loss) plus gain (loss) on sale of assets, depreciation and amortization, non-cash impairment charge, non-cash stock-based compensation included in operating and corporate expenses, net interest expense, other income (loss), gain (loss) on debt extinguishment, income tax (expense) benefit, equity in net income (loss) of nonconsolidated affiliate, non-cash losses and syndication programming amortization less syndication programming payments. We use the term consolidated adjusted EBITDA because that measure is defined in our revolving credit facility and does not include gain (loss) on sale of assets, depreciation and amortization, non-cash impairment charge, non-cash stock-based compensation, net interest expense, other income (loss), gain (loss) on debt extinguishment, income tax (expense) benefit, equity in net income (loss) of nonconsolidated affiliate, non-cash losses and syndication programming amortization and does include syndication programming payments. While many in the financial community and we consider consolidated adjusted EBITDA to be important, it should be considered in addition to, but not as a substitute for or superior to, other measures of liquidity and financial performance prepared in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, such as cash flows from operating activities, operating income and net income.  As consolidated adjusted EBITDA excludes non-cash gain (loss) on sale of assets, non-cash depreciation and amortization, non-cash impairment charge, non-cash stock-based compensation expense, net interest expense, other income (loss), gain (loss) on debt extinguishment, income tax (expense) benefit, equity in net income (loss) of nonconsolidated affiliate, non-cash losses and syndication programming amortization and includes syndication programming payments, consolidated adjusted EBITDA has certain limitations because it excludes and includes several important non-cash financial line items. Therefore, we consider both non-GAAP and GAAP measures when evaluating our business.  Consolidated adjusted EBITDA is also used to make executive compensation decisions. 

(4)

Free cash flow is defined as consolidated adjusted EBITDA less cash paid for income taxes, net interest expense, capital expenditures and dividend payments. Net interest expense is defined as interest expense, less non-cash interest expense relating to amortization of debt finance costs, less non-cash interest expense relating to discount amortization on our $364 million aggregate principal amount of 8.750% senior secured first lien notes due 2017 (the "Notes"), and less interest income. Free cash flow per share is defined as free cash flow divided by the basic or diluted weighted average common shares outstanding.

Commenting on the Company's earnings results, Walter F. Ulloa, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "During the third quarter, we achieved revenue growth primarily driven by increases in political advertising, core advertising and retransmission consent revenue.  The increase in our political advertising revenue reflects the importance of our media platforms in reaching Latino voters. In addition, our television segment benefited from revenue growth generated from a more diversified base of advertising categories.  Our audience shares remain strong in the nation's most densely populated Hispanic markets, and we believe we are well positioned to benefit as the U.S. Hispanic market continues to expand and advertisers increasingly recognize the importance of reaching our target audience."
