Nexstar Broadcasting Revenue Up 34% in Q1

Nexstar Broadcasting reported $112.2 million in net revenue during the first quarter of 2013, a 34% increase on the year-ago quarter’s $83.6 million.

Local revenues were up 31.9% for the quarter and national revenues were up 34.3%. Political revenues were down significantly in the non-election year, but retransmission fees were up 64.2% and e-media revenue was up 57.3%. Broadcast cash flow was $39.8 million, an increase of 16.9% on the year-ago quarter.

“Industry revenue improved each month during the first quarter and this trend continues for Nexstar in the second quarter to date,” Nexstar chairman, president and CEO Perry A. Sook said in a statement. “As such, we are well positioned to grow all of our non-political revenue sources throughout 2013.”
