Citadel Broadcasting Corporation
Citadel is the fifth largest radio broadcasting company in the United States based on net broadcasting revenue. As of June 2, 2005 we owned and operated 155 FM and 58 AM radio stations in 47 markets located in 24 states across the country. We have a well-clustered radio station portfolio that is diversified by programming formats, geographic regions, audience demographics and advertising clients. We rank first or second in audience share in 31 of our 45 rated markets. Our top 25 markets accounted for approximately 75% of our 2004 revenue.
Our radio stations are predominantly located in mid-sized markets, which we define as those ranked 30 to 150 by market revenue. We believe mid-sized markets are attractive because they derive a significant portion of their revenue from local advertisers and have fewer signals and competitors than larger markets. Furthermore, we believe that there are more opportunities for consolidation in mid-sized markets than in larger markets.
