Tribune Media Company reported unaudited consolidated earnings results for the third quarter and nine months ended of September 30, 2016. For the quarter, the company’s operating revenues were $518.1 million compared to $488.6 million in the third quarter of 2015, representing an increase of $29.5 million, or 6%.  The increase was primarily driven by political advertising, retransmission consent, carriage fee and digital advertising revenues and an increase in Digital and Data revenues, partially offset by a decrease in real estate revenues as a result of the sales of certain properties in 2016. Operating profit was $222.4 million compared to $38.8 million for the third quarter of 2015, representing an increase of $183.6 million.
