Cumulus Reports Flat Q4 Revenue

Cumulus Reports Flat Q4 Revenue

No big surprise here after hearing much of the same from many other companies in the radio sector. Cumulus reported an increase of $1 million in Q4 (.3 percent) over Q4 2013. For the year Cumulus was up $17.7 million (1.4 percent) over 2013. In 2014 Cumulus took in $21 million in political revenue, $11 million of that was in Q4. Local revenue decreased 3.4 percent while digital revenue was up 30 percent. Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey announced that the cost for content at the company increased $8.3 million to $116.7 million mainly due to new format launches in Chicago, New York and San Francisco. Dickey also said he believes WMAL in Baltimore is closing in on WTOP, the number on billing station in the country the past several years.
