Mixed Q4 results. Total company Q4 revenue of $320.1 million, an increase of 8.0%, was better than our $309.7 million estimate, driven by 19% growth in its Digital businesses. Both TV and Radio declined in the quarter due to the absence of year earlier Political advertising. Q4 adj. EBITDA of $16.2 million was slightly below our $19.0 million estimate.
