Our radio division is also pacing up approximately 8% for the third quarter, with robust demand for national business in our larger markets. We had a tough comp on TV affiliate fees, due to a $2.0 million one-time MVPD settlement in Q2 of 2018. Our digital division continued their turn-around from 2018, with positive Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter and year-to-date. Reach Media benefited from another successful cruise event, with the Tom JoynerFantastic Voyage posting 12% year over year revenue growth. On the Cable TV business, as anticipated, we invested some additional programing and marketing expenses related to the as we continue to create and promote engaging new content. Overall, I am happy with our progress this quarter, and believe we can carry this positive momentum into the second half of the year.”
