Analyst Note| Neil Macker, CFA |
Nexstar Media recorded a slightly better-than-anticipated second quarter, as revenue met and adjusted EBITDA came in above FactSet consensus. Same-station core advertising was up 42% as ad spending rebounded from the COVID-19 impact last year. The firm’s online efforts also bounced back as local advertisers returned to the market. We are maintaining our no-moat rating and $146 fair value estimate.
