The question over the next 12 months will not be whether radio and TV will survive. The industry has faced difficult periods before and often emerged stronger.
The question is what will the industry's multiples look like in the post-crisis world? What will be the numbers behind those valuations, and what business models and revenue streams will drive them?
You're invited to join broadcast owners, investors and strategic advisors at the 26th Annual SNL Kagan Radio/TV Finance Summit on Wednesday, April 1 at the New York Athletic Club in New York City for an unbiased look at the prospects for revenue, growth and transactions across the changing shape of the broadcasting sector.
Driven by SNL Kagan's independent data and analysis, this executive-level Summit presents the metrics, projections and commentary you need whether you're planning a transaction, evaluating an investment or plotting competitive strategy.
The agenda includes:
-- What's ahead for broadcast station revenues and competitive positioning for local and national advertising -- The changing face of advertising -- Assessing the opportunities, perils and potential size of the revenue pie from digital, multicasting and the Internet -- Options for broadcast finance and deal-making in a recessionary and credit constrained environment -- Valuation benchmarks for radio and TV stations, and the prospects for consolidation -- The role of TV and radio stations in new-media paradigms -- The current state of radio and TV station cash flow and valuations, and how they will likely evolve
You are invited to attend a cocktail reception in honor of the John Bayliss Broadcast Foundation Immediately following the Summit. The reception, sponsored by Arbitron and hosted by SNL Center for Financial Education is free to summit attendees. Additional tickets will be available at the door with all proceeds benefiting the Bayliss Radio Scholarship Fund.
