Embattled TRIBUNE CO. revenues fell 1% year-to-year to $428 million in OCTOBER, but the company's radio/entertainment division saw a 36.7% increase, based primarily on revenue from additional CHICAGO CUBS games.
The company, which does not separate the revenues for its only radio property, Talk WGN-A/CHICAGO, from the CUBS and TV production revenues, says that NOVEMBER revenues ("period 11," ending NOVEMBER 19) look "more favorable" than OCTOBER's as compared to last year.
