The stations reach approximately 14.9 million viewers or 12.9% of all U.S. television households. Strategy The company’s strategies include developing leading local franchises; employing a high-quality local sales force in each of its markets to increase revenue from local advertisers; investing in digital media; and owning or providing services to approximately one station in a given market enables it to broaden its audience share, enhance its revenue share. Seasonality Advertising revenue is positively affected by national and regional political election campaigns, and certain events such as the Olympic Games or the Super Bowl. Stations’ advertising revenue is highest in the second and fourth quarters of each year, due in part to increases in consumer advertising in the spring and retail advertising in the period up to, and including the holiday season. In addition, advertising revenue is higher during even-numbered years when state, congressional and presidential elections occur and advertising is aired during the Olympic Games. History Nexstar Broadcasting Group, Inc. was founded in 1996.
