​iHeartMedia Takes Bondholders To Court Omce Again

The report from the San Antonio Express-News states, that iHeartMedia, Inc. is heading back to court, suing its bondholders once again over damages from its previous successful suit that blocked the investors from declaring the company in default and accelerating debt payment deadlines.
iHeartMedia, is claiming that the suit cost it the ability to promptly refinance some of its debt and increased the cost of restructuring; it seeks damages between $100 million and $475 million in the new suit.

iHeartMedia commented, "We are always exploring avenues for improving our capital structure that position the Company for long-term growth. Following a ruling in our favor by the State District Court in Bexar County, Texas in litigation with a small group of our senior lenders, we repurchased some of our debt, as we have done in the past and as permitted by our financing documents. On July 26, 2016, we filed a lawsuit in Bexar County to reaffirm our position that such debt repurchases are permissible.  We believe these repurchases are in the best interests of the company and its stakeholders. We intend to take any other actions necessary to protect the Company and will continue to explore opportunities to strengthen our capital structure."

​Beasley Broadcast Group Reports Second Quarter Net Revenue Of $27.8 Million

Beasley Broadcast Group has released operating results for the three-month period ended June 30, 2016. The $0.8 million, or 2.8%, year-over-year increase in net revenue during the three months ended June 30th, "primarily reflects higher revenue from the Company’s Tampa-St. Petersburg and Charlotte market clusters," noted the company.

Station Operating Income (SOI, a non-GAAP financial measure), declined 2.8% in the second quarter of 2016, compared to the second quarter of 2015. The decline reflects a $1.0 million, or 5.3%, increase in station operating expenses at the Company’s Tampa-St. Petersburg and Charlotte market clusters, partially as a result of higher bonuses earned, cash promotions, event/concert expenses and third party costs associated with digital services, which more than offset the increase in 2016 second quarter revenue.
The $0.3 million, or 6.3%, year-over-year reduction in 2016 second quarter operating income is primarily attributable to the 4.9% increase in total operating expenses in the second quarter of 2016 compared with the same period in 2015. Net income for the 2016 second quarter declined 2.5% to $2.5 million while net income per diluted share was flat with the comparable year ago period at $0.11.











Commenting on the results, Interim CEO/CFO Caroline Beasley said, “During the second quarter, Beasley’s clusters again outperformed the markets that report to Miller Kaplan on a combined revenue basis and we expect this trend to continue in 2016. In particular, we saw very strong results at our TAMPA-SAINT PETERSBURG cluster though our Augusta, Charlotte, Fayetteville, Ft. Myers-Naples and Greenville-New Bern-Jacksonville clusters also outperformed their respective markets on a revenue basis. However, net income and diluted EPS were essentially flat year-over-year as station level promotion and other expenses, increased SG&A partially related to recently announced transaction activity, and investments to strengthen the Company’s infrastructure for the anticipated expansion of our operating base outpaced the quarterly revenue growth.

“Last week we announced an agreement to acquire Greater Media, Inc. in a cash and stock transaction that squarely meets our criteria for prudently expanding Beasley’s footprint while adhering to our core long-term strategic focus on localism. Upon closing, which is expected later this year subject to regulatory and other customary approvals, the Greater Media assets will significantly broaden our local radio broadcasting and digital platform, footprint and revenue base by adding stations that are geographically complementary to our existing operating base while presenting the opportunity for synergies with the Company’s existing operations. 
“Specifically, the transaction is expected to increase our broadcast portfolio by approximately 40% and more than double our revenue and audience reach, giving us market leading stations, great brands and an opportunity to engage with brand new markets. We expect the transaction to be accretive to Beasley’s operating results immediately upon closing when taking into account expected synergies, one-time transaction costs and the planned divestiture of certain stations in Charlotte to secure FCC approval. As has been our practice, we expect to allocate free cash flow from our expanded base of operations to debt reduction while continuing to return capital to shareholders through our quarterly cash dividend.

“In this regard, during the second quarter, we made credit facility repayments totaling $3.0 million, reducing borrowings to $83.0 million at June 30, 2016, and declared our eleventh consecutive quarterly cash dividend.
“Looking forward, our keen focus on strong core programming and targeted localism will remain the foundation of our post-transaction operating philosophy. Throughout Beasley’s 55 year history, this approach has supported strong ratings and market leadership, and we believe it will continue to support our commitment to enhancing long-term shareholder value."

Dierks Bentley Will Release 'BLACK' On Vinyl Next Month

Capitol Nashville artist Dierks Bentley will release his latest album, "BLACK," on vinyl beginning Friday, August 12th. The album contains the #1 hit single, "Somewhere On A Beach" as well as Bentley's current single, "Different For Girls," featuring Elle King.

The album was originally released via CD and digital platforms in May.

Bentley said, "When we created this album, I kept imagining the flow of this record being sold with an 'A' side and a 'B' side. We've release vinyl before, but I've never had the chance to really master it properly and didn't really put the time in before that it deserved. With 'BLACK,' every little detail has mattered to me. Sterling Sound in New York really gave the mix a warmth that you don't hear on MP3 or CD, and I can't wait for fans to hear the whole album this way."

Bentley plans to celebrate the release with fans in St. Louis, MO on Friday, August 12th with an in-store performance at Vintage Vinyl.

Brad Paisley To Put On Free Show In Cincinnati In Place Of Canceled 'Buckle Up Festival'

Arista Nashville’s Brad Paisley knew that fans in the Cincinnati area would be upset when the "Buckle Up Festival" was canceled on Monday (7/25). Paisley was set to headline the two-day Festival on Saturday, August 6th, but suddenly found himself with an open date when the Festival was shut down unexpectedly.

Paisley decided to make good use of the open date and is taking his "Life Amplified World Tour" to Cincinnati for a free show on Saturday, August 6th at Riverbend Music Center. "I had a day off, and I love your area, and I love the amphitheater," Paisley told Hubbard Radio Country WUBE/B-105/Cincinnati listeners during the show announcement. "So we're going to do a free concert with my tour at Riverbend." 

Free tickets went on sale Yesterday (7/27) with no service fees at Ticketmaster and the Riverbend Music Center and were quickly snapped up leading to a "sold out" status in a matter of 20 minutes. Check out the video of Paisley's call to WUBE announcing the show here.

They will probably shut off my office email, so in teh meantime, just keep bugging (Patches).  Thank you for the prayers. I ask for another couple of them between now and Thursday morning."

Aubrie Sellers Signs with Warner Bros. Nashville

Warner Bros./Warner Music Nashville (WMN) has signed Aubrie Sellers to their roster.  She will headline WMN's "Pickin' on the Patio" on Wednesday, July 27.

"When you combine the purity of Aubrie's voice,the gritty swagger of her delivery, and her amazing and unique approach to songwriting, it's no surprise that the competition to sign her to a major label was intense," said WMN Chairman/CEO . "We couldn't be more thrilled that she chose to join our Warner Music Nashville family, and we are excited to join her already impressive musical journey."
