OCTOBER 9TH LETTER

October 9, 2007

Independent Members of the Board of Directors

EMMIS Communications Corp.

One Emmis Plaza
40 Monument Circle, Suite 700

Indianapolis, IN 46204
 
Dear Independent Members of the Board of Directors:
 

As one of the Company’s largest shareholders, we listened with interest to Friday’s second quarter conference call. Once again, we were let down by what we heard – optimistic reporting of what only can be described as another quarter of disappointing results.

Following the call, we feel compelled to write to communicate that we broadly concur with the sentiments outlined in the 13D filing of Martin Capital Management filed on September 13, 2007. At today’s prices, we believe that the Company’s stock is trading substantially below its intrinsic value. The Board should be exploring vigorously appropriate alternatives to bring the share price in line with the Company’s intrinsic value (including exploring the sale of some or all of its assets). We call on the Board to fulfill its fiduciary duty to ensure that the Company pursues all appropriate courses of action and to ensure that the Company has a management team that is willing and up to the task of managing the Company and implementing strategic initiatives in the best interests of all shareholders.

We look forward to a more open dialogue about the Company and would be pleased to discuss our thoughts in more detail with you at your convenience. We want to emphasize that Noonday is acting on its own and is not acting in concert with any other shareholder.

Sincerely,

/s/ David Cohen

David Cohen
Senior Managing Member of Noonday Capital, L.L.C., General Partner of
Noonday Asset Management, L.P.
