Scripps Reports 5% Bump in Q3 Station Revenue

E.W. Scripps Co.'s 10 television stations reported $76.9 million in revenue for the third quarter, a 5% bump over the third quarter last year. Local advertising was down 6.4% and national was down 14.6%.

But more than $10 million in political advertising and the Olympics pushed Scripps' stations into the plus column.
