Here’s a situation at the FCC worth watching as we could see similar requests down the line. Entravision has asked the agency to modify the TV market of WJAL after receiving $25.5 mlllion in the incentive auction to vacate the station’s original channel allocation in Hagerstown, Md.
The Hispanic media company realizes $264 million from the FCC incentive auction. At its TV segment, revenue was down 9% from 3Q 2016, primarily due to lower political ad money. Digital segment revenue climbed almost 200%.
A bright spot for the company’s overall results is its digital revenue, which was boosted by the 2Q acquisition of Headway, a provider of mobile, programmatic, data and performance digital marketing solutions primarily in the United States, Mexico and other markets in Latin America.

The fourth quarter TV revenue grew 9% to $43.4 million, boosted by political ad dollars.

The Spanish-Language broadcaster says the drop to $39.8 million is primarily due to the absence of World Cup and significant political advertising revenue in 2015 compared to 2014, and a decrease in local advertising revenue, partially offset by an increase in retransmission consent revenue.
Lilly Gonzalez becomes EVP of integrated marketing solutions, East Coast, while Humberto Hormaza is now SVP, integrated marketing solutions, Orlando.

Entravision continues its downsizing of news operations. It has now canceled the morning newscasts in all of its stations across the country, laying off most of the talent. Buenos Días DC, Despierta San Diego, Despierta El Paso and Alegre Despertar in McAllen, Texas, are among the morning shows affected.
Higher national advertising and retransmission consent revenue help power the increase.
The drop to $36.4 million is due to a lack of political and World Cup advertising that help boost the quarter in 2014.
TV segment operating expenses grew only 1% from this time last year.
Growth is fueled by retrans, political and World Cup advertising that helped offset decreases in local and national ad revenue.
The increase to $41.3 million is driven by higher retransmission consent money as well as political and World Cup advertising.
The increase to $37.7 million is driven by higher core advertising and retransmission consent money.
In anticipation of tighter retransmission consent regulations, the Spanish-language station owner wants the FCC to allow it to keep on negotiating contracts for Entravision stations as well.
Lower political could not be offset by increased ad revenue and higher retransmission consent money.
Lower political and retransmission consent revenue, coupled with increased operating expenses are the culprits.
The rise comes from higher local ad revenue and retransmission consent money. Walter F. Ulloa, chairman-CEO: “Core revenue … from our television and radio segments outperformed their respective industry averages, and we improved our free cash flow over the second quarter of 2012.”
The new agreement renews a partnership for 56 TV stations and is expanded to include 49 radio stations.
Gains in political, core and retransmission consent boost numbers for the Hispanic broadcaster.
