ITEM 2.02.    Results of Operations and Financial Condition.

ITEM 7.01     Regulation FD Disclosure
 
In late February/early March, we were the target of an external cyber-attack. Upon discovery of the cyber-attack, we took immediate action to remediate the security vulnerability and retained a cybersecurity firm to evaluate our systems and identify solutions based on the evolving circumstances. The threat actors gained unauthorized access to, and encrypted,  certain of our information technology systems and databases. To date, there is no evidence of mass exfiltration of the information. The attack caused some initial disruption to our ability to traffic radio advertising spots, which was quickly remediated, and we have incurred expenses in responding to the incident, rebuilding back-office systems and upgrading hardware and software.
 
In an abundance of caution, we have provided notice to all potentially impacted parties and have provided credit monitoring and identity protection services to those who may have been affected by this cyber-attack. We continue to implement security enhancements since this incident. We have incurred expenses subsequent to the cyber-attack to investigate and remediate this matter and expect to continue to incur expenses of this nature in the foreseeable future. We will recognize these expenses in the periods in which they are incurred.
 
We have contingency plans and insurance coverage for certain expenses and potential liabilities of this nature and will pursue coverage for all applicable losses; however, the ultimate outcome of our pursuit of insurance coverage cannot be presently determined.
