FOR THE QUARTER ENDED MARCH 31, 2010

Arlington, VA, April 16, 2010 – Allbritton Communications Company (“ACC”) announced today certain preliminary results for the quarter ended March 31, 2010.

We expect to report the following:

 

   

Net revenues to increase by 14% to approximately $45 million as compared to $39.6 million of net revenues from continuing operations for the same quarter in 2009.

 

   

Local and national advertising revenue, which excludes political advertising revenue, to increase by 15% to approximately $37 million, as compared to $32.8 million for the same quarter in 2009.

 

   

The automotive category, which represents approximately 17% of our revenue for the quarter ended March 31, 2010, to increase by 54% as compared to the same quarter in 2009.

 

   

Subscriber fees to increase by approximately 20% over $3.9 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2009.

 

   

During the three months ended March 31, 2010, we made net repayments under our senior credit facility of $16.5 million, resulting in a reduction of our outstanding balance under the facility from $28.5 million at December 31, 2009 to $12.0 million at March 31, 2010. We expect to report consolidated cash and cash equivalents as of March 31, 2010 of approximately $3.5 million.

The preliminary data included in this report has been prepared by and is the responsibility of ACC’s management.
