Revenues rose +9%. This compares with our forecast for revenue growth of +8%. Segment-level operating income margins averaged 29% vs. the year ago period’s 30% level. Adjusted diluted EPS was $1.85, up from $1.51 in the year-ago period, better than expectations, but largely aided by a lower than expected tax rate.

OI margins for broadcasting were relatively stable at 18% in both periods." (5/9/2018)
