Scripps Networks Gains Outweigh A Q3 Local Media Dip


According to analysts polled by Zacks Equity Research, The E.W. Scripps Co. — a much bigger operation today than a year ago thanks to its merger with Ion Media — was expected to post earnings per share of $0.12 in Q3. That would have reflected an 84.2% year-over-year decline, impacted by fewer political ad dollars.

How did Scripps do?

Much better than those prognostications, thank you. But, it is hardly because of the company’s Local Media unit.
