The Top 25 Station Groups

How They Rank and Why 4/21/2006 08:00:00 PM Eastern

B&C’s Top 25
Station Groups are ranked according to the percentage of the U.S. TV homes they
reach, as measured by Nielsen Media Research. In the tables below, a
station’s reach is calculated in two ways: according to FCC percent
rules and total coverage. The FCC method, which is used to rank the groups,
discounts by half the reach of UHF stations, those channel 14 and above. The
total-coverage column in the ranking shows reach without the discount. If a
group owns more than one station in the market, the additional stations’
coverage is not counted in the group’s total.

The data on the stations are provided to
B&C by BIA Financial Network, which compiles the list
of stations and computes coverage. The station listing includes deals announced
prior to March 21, but some subsequently announced deals are noted. The list of
stations for each group includes wholly owned stations and those run under
local marketing agreements are included. Stations operated under joint
marketing and programming agreements and time-brokerage deals are not included.
Low-power stations, satellite stations, translators and stations that have only
cable distribution are also excluded. As a result, the list may differ
significantly from those on corporate Web sites.

Information on the company’s additional
media assets was collected from the companies themselves. Stations that
announced by April 10 that they will become affiliates of The CW or My Network
TV are noted. The abbreviation for the stock in publicly traded firms appears
after the company’s name.
