Univision Q4 Net Revenue Up 1% to $692.9M, Radio Down 8%


Univision Communications reported fourth quarter net revenue increased 1% to $692.9 million from $688.5 million in 2018. Q4 revenue for the radio segment declined 8% to $66.1 million, compared to $71.9 million. Radio ad revenue fell 8% to $60.9 million from $66.2 million, while core radio advertising revenue was down 2% to $57.9 million from $59.2 million. Adjusted OIBDA increased 1% to $230.4 million from $229 million. The company reported a net income of $93.9 million as compared to a loss of $40.2 million.

"In the fourth quarter, Univision's network portfolio had the greatest growth in Prime viewership and was the only network group to increase Total Day viewers among top-10 U.S. Media holders. This is a testament to the strength of the U.S. Hispanic Community and to our focus and execution in serving the greatest number of Hispanics every day, with consumption that rivals the most highly viewed English language broadcast networks," said CEO Vince Sadusky.

"As Hispanics continue to fuel the U.S. economy, distributors and advertisers, including political campaigns, are recognizing Hispanic consumers are critical to drive growth."

"Looking ahead to 2020, we have begun the year with the largest ratings lead over our competitors in years, and anticipate a record first quarter in political advertising revenue, as candidates understand that 32 million eligible U.S. Hispanics will be the largest racial or ethnic minority group in the electorate."

Earlier this week, the Spanish-language broadcaster agreed to sell a majority stake to the private-equity firm Searchlight Capital Partners and a ForgeLight, a company founded by a former Viacom Inc. senior executive Wade Davis. Davis and Searchlight are acquiring up to a 64% of Univision for an undisclosed price, estimated at $10 billion including debt. Mexico City's Grupo Televisa will retain its nearly 36% stake. Davis will become CEO of Univision following the completion of the deal.

"V-103 International strives to build an inclusive community for those looking for a diverse and engaging listening experience, both in this great city and nationwide via RADIO.COM."

Osei "The Dark Secret" Kweku has managed to merge his love for music and philanthropy into a trans-continental culture exchange by way of digital media.

Waterloo Media Names Barstow Austin City Limits Radio PD

Lynn Barstow
Lynn Barstow

Austin-based Waterloo Media taps veteran radio programmer Lynn Barstow from Alternative KROX-FM (101X) to also oversee its sister brand Austin City Limits Radio on KGSR-FM-HD2 as Program Director, effective immediately. The announcement follows the resignation of ACLR's Emily Parker, who is pursuing interests outside the radio business. A Houston native, Barstow has spent nearly 20 years in Austin, programming KROX for the last 15. He previously programmed Austin Alternative KNNC-FM (K-NACK) in the early 1990's.

"As a brand, Austin City Limits has been iconic through nearly my entire life; the TV show was a formative force in shaping my music tastes; Austin City Limits Festival and the ACL Live venue have lived up to the television show's greatness, and I'm here to help ensure that the radio station and its events continue to do so, too. Having a staff as well-versed in music's role in Austin as Andy (Langer), Loris (Lowe) and Chris (Mosser) puts us well on the way," said Barstow.

Impending changes in the ACL Radio on-air lineup after Parker's exit include the addition of newcomer Ariana Quiroz from Waterloo's digital content staff and the increased profile of Marketing Director Stephanie Perez, who has been serving as weekend on-air talent in addition to her behind-the-scenes duties.

In 2018, Austin City Limits Radio evolved from KGSR/Austin, which launched as an AAA station in 1990. KGSR's chief tenets were to be about quality music across all genres, super-serving the city's music community and Austin as a whole. Its own iconic events -- Zilker Park's Blues On The Green and Unplugged At The Grove at Shady Grove -- have drawn thousands of Austinites for live music experiences for decades. Both continue under the ACL Radio brand.
