RADIO ONLINE | Wednesday, June 29, 2016 | 10:57pm CT | Share
iHeartMedia said it may break off negotiations on restructuring some of its $21 billion of debt. The news comes as the company failed to reach an agreement with some of its creditors following a Texas court ruling rescinding Notices of Default after creditors attemptd to declare $6 billion in senior notes in default.

Franklin Resources Inc.'s Franklin Advisers Inc. is the biggest holder of iHM's $6.3 billion of term loans and has reportedly lead the discussions. iHM says that various proposals to amend the terms of the company's credit agreement and, through a series of exchange offers, the priority guarantee note indentures, were exchanged. So far no agreement has been reached.
On December 3, 2015, an 8K filing said that the company contributed 100 million shares of Class B common stock of Clear Channel Outdoor Holdings from Clear Channel Holdings to Broader Media LLC (both wholly-owned subsidiaries) that is an "unrestricted subsidiary" under the Indentures. iHM said then the contribution was made in full compliance with all of the provisions.

FCC Review Seeks to Update Media Ownership Rules
RADIO ONLINE | Tuesday, June 28, 2016 | 1:34am CT | Share
FCC Chairman Wheeler is circulating the 2010/2014 Quadrennial ownership review and rules that, if adopted, will take into account what it calls the "evolving media marketplace" and the Commission's obligation to "conduct timely review of the rules." As required by the Telecommunications Act of 1996, the Commission considers is mandated to whether or not the current rules continue to serve its goals of promoting competition, localism and diversity -- in particular, diversity of viewpoints in local markets, enriching local communities.
In 2014, the Commission adopted a further notice of proposed rulemaking to establish what it called "a clear and transparent set of guidelines for media ownership," incorporating the record from the 2010 proceeding and initiating the 2014 review. The further notice also sought updated information on the state of the media ownership marketplace.
The substantial record concluded both the existence of a dynamic media marketplace and the continuing importance of traditional media outlets to their local communities. So, while advances have changed the ways in which many consumers access entertainment, news, and informational programming, the FCC found that traditional media outlets remain of vital importance to their local communities. Its analysis indicates that the ownership restrictions remain necessary in the public interest, though the realities of the media marketplace require some targeted modifications of a number of the rules.
The rules now circulated for vote by the full Commission:
Preserve the existing ownership restrictions, with targeted modifications. Preserve the existing ownership restrictions, with targeted Carryout the Third Circuit's remand of diversity issues,re-adopt the small business revenue-based eligible entity standard,address proposals submitted by MMTC, and decline to adopt race-or gender-based measures. Preserve the existing ownership restrictions, with targeted Readopt the TV JSA attribution rule consistent with the court's guidance in Prometheus III and Congress's guidanceon grandfathering. Preserve the existing ownership restrictions, with targeted Adopt a definition of shared services agreements; require that these agreements be filed with the Commission and made publicly available; and do not attribute any such agreements, other than JSAs, at this time. The FCC states that existing media ownership rules, with slight modification, remain in the public interest. The order, if adopted, finds that the current media ownership rules remain necessary in the public interest but require minor updates to reflect current industry trends and marketplace realities.
The Commission's future quadrennial ownership review will be able to assess the impact of marketplace changes resulting from the auction. The proposed order:
Local Television Ownership Rule: (1) Retains the existing rule, with a minor technical modification to address the transition to digital broadcasting; (2) Extends the current ban on co-ownership of two top-four television stations in a market to network affiliation swaps, to prevent broadcasters from evading application of the rule; and (3) Declines to limit dual network affiliations via multicast at this time.
Local Radio Ownership Rule: Retains the existing rule with minor clarifications to assist the Media Bureau in processing license assignment/transfer applications. (For example, the item adopts a new Puerto Rico market definition based on Commission precedent, and also clarifies the grandfathering rules applicable to community of license changes.)
Radio/Television Cross-Ownership Rule: Retains the existing rule with a modification to address the transition to digital television broadcasting.
Newspaper/Broadcast Cross-Ownership Rule: Retains the existing ban on cross ownership, but relaxes the rule by providing an exception for failed or failing entities and states that the Commission will consider waivers. The trigger for the rule is also modified to consider the relevant Nielsen television or radio market (if any) and to replace the prior analog television contour with a digital contour to reflect the transition to digital television broadcasting.
Dual Network Rule: Retains the existing rule, which prohibits mergers among any of the top four national television broadcast networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX). We will continue to seek rules to promote a vibrant and diverse media marketplace.

BIA/Kelsey State of Industry Report Details Ad Revs
RADIO ONLINE | Monday, June 27, 2016 | 6:42pm CT | Share
Although local radio stations have faced an onslaught of new competitors for years, they remain an important part of the local media marketplace. Local radio stations still reach a vast majority of their audiences during the week, but those listeners have many more options available to them. Additionally, advertisers have multiple platforms (audio and other formats) from which to choose to relay their messages. As a result, local radio stations in recent years have seen meager increases in total industry revenues and even some slight decreases in over-the-air advertising revenues.
According to BIA/Kelsey's "State of the Industry" Radio 2016 report, radio still reaches a considerable amount of the population and its ability to deliver local audiences to national and local advertisers allows it to maintain a position in the local ad marketplace. On the other hand, the increase in competition for listeners from other sources of audio entertainment and information and the rise in competition from other local media to sell advertising have put constraints on the revenues generated by local radio stations.
In recent years, BIA/Kelsey says total radio industry revenues have remained relatively constant, with over-the-air ad revenues either holding steady or decreasing by a few percentages points. Online/digital revenues generated by local radio stations have shown much stronger growth, mitigating some of that decrease. In 2015, on-air advertising revenues declined by 1.6% while online revenues grew by 11.6%. The firm believes local radio stations will be able to turn around this negative on-air revenue growth slightly. As long as the economy maintains moderate growth in the next few years, BIA/Kelsey expects total radio advertising to grow in the 1% to 1.25% CAGR range.
BIA/Kelsey's report said that one of the reasons investors are generally more confident in public radio companies is simply that these groups are diversified, owning a number of stations in different markets across the country. After many years of acquiring stations and merging larger radio companies, the radio industry is characterized by a greater degree of national consolidation. The following is a listing of the top 10 radio groups, in terms of 2015 gross advertising revenues, along with the overall share of total industry revenues.
While these ten radio groups account for nearly 19.0 percent of the total number of U.S. commercial radio stations, they garner nearly half (47.4 percent) of all radio ad revenues. A key reason is simply that they own a vast majority of stations in the largest markets and, as shown earlier, these markets generate a significant proportion of the entire industry revenues. Additionally, these groups manage some of the most popular stations in these markets.
|Rank||Owner||Stations||2015 Revs||Revenue Share|
|10||Hubbard Radio||46||$223,925|| 1.6%|
