Acme Reports Slight Increase in Station Revenue

Acme Communications, which currently owns and operates three stations in addition to producing the syndicated morning show “The Daily Buzz,” announced that it saw a 2% increase in station revenue in the first quarter, compared to the same period last year.

The 2% increase is from Acme’s “continuing” stations, since the company recently sold off three of its properties (WBXX in Knoxville, WBDT in Dayton, and WCWF in Green Bay). Acme currently owns KWBQ and KASY in Alberquerque-Santa Fe and WBUW in Madison.

“Market conditions continue to improve and we are cautiously optimistic that this positive trend will continue at our three remaining continuing stations and ‘The Daily Buzz’ through the remainder of the year,” said Doug Gealy, Acme’s president and CEO, in a press release.

Revenues at “The Daily Buzz” increased 16% for the quarter.
