The New York Times said its broadcast division posted a 12% operating profit decline for the second quarter to $12 million on a 6% revenue drop to $38.7 million.
For the first six months, profit for the unit, which includes eight network affiliated TV stations and two radio stations, was down 13% to $18.2 million, on a 6% revenue drop to $71.1 million.
The company said the declines were "mainly due to lower levels of advertising in most categories, particularly automotive and package goods."
