NEW YORK -- May 6, 2014

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund (NLEOMF), which works to
honor American law enforcement and make it safer for those who serve, and
Clear Channel Outdoor (NYSE:CCO), today announced a partnership that will take
NLEOMF’s 26^th Annual Candlelight Vigil to the masses across the United
States, and into the heart of New York City via marquee locations such as
Times Square, Penn Plaza and the Port Authority through CCO’s digital outdoor
media network—a national first. Clear Channel Media and Entertainment is also
supporting the program with a week-long public service campaign and special
news coverage.

As the Candlelight Vigil commences at the National Law Enforcement Officers
Memorial in Washington, D.C. on May 13 at 8 p.m. ET, all of CCO’s more than
1,100 large format digital billboards across the U.S. will pause for 24
seconds on a single iconic National Police Week image in remembrance of the
286 U.S. law enforcement officers whose names are being formally dedicated on
the Memorial. Clear Channel’s full-motion digital billboards in Times Square
(47th St. and Broadway), Penn Plaza (7th Ave. and 34th St.) and the Port
Authority (8th Ave. and 42nd St.) will simultaneously display a two-minute
video from last year’s Candlelight Vigil while inviting passersby to pause,
honor and remember.

Leading up to the Candlelight Vigil and throughout National Police Week, Clear
Channel Outdoor will display tributes to honor fallen officers who served in
communities where the company operates. Additionally, CCO is running creative
that encourages the public to donate to the Memorial Fund’s United by Light
program and to dedicate a virtual candle with a personalized message in honor
of a special officer. Altogether, it is estimated that the two-week outdoor
campaign will reach 37 million people.

“We are honored to stand with the Memorial Fund in remembering these officers
and saying thank you to those who continue serving, said Suzanne Grimes,
president and Chief Operating Officer, Clear Channel Outdoor. “We all owe a
debt of gratitude to these heroes and their families who have paid the
ultimate sacrifice for our safety.”

Between May 11-17, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment will also support the
effort with a week-long on-air public service campaign across its 840 radio
stations that will encourage listeners to support the National Law Enforcement
Officers Memorial Fund by lighting a virtual candle, donating or simply
learning about brave men and women who lost their lives in the line of duty.
Additionally, Clear Channel’s news team will conduct a series of interviews
with key members of the NLEOMF to raise awareness of the heroic acts and
ultimate sacrifices of law enforcement officers.

Running from May 11-17, 2014, National Police Week was established by a joint
resolution of Congress in 1962 and pays special recognition to those law
enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the
safety and protection of others.

On average, one law enforcement officer is killed in the line of duty
somewhere in the U.S. every 58 hours. Since the first known line-of-duty death
in 1791, more than 20,000 U.S. law enforcement officers have lost their lives
in service. With the dedication of the 286 names being added this year, the
Memorial now bears the names of 20,267 fallen officers.

“The Memorial Fund’s partnership with Clear Channel is an amazing way to bring
attention to our organization’s mission and to honor and remember law
enforcement officers in such a meaningful way,” said Craig W. Floyd, Chairman
& CEO of the Memorial Fund. “It is our hope that by viewing Candlelight Vigil
footage—in places like Times Square—and the individual officer tributes
displayed across the nation, many new people will experience the emotions and
splendor of this event,” he said. “We hope people feel a greater appreciation
for the service and sacrifices these individuals make.”
