    Net Income Tumbles, Revenue Flat For TEGNA In Q1

    For the company formerly known as Gannett before spinning off its newspaper division in 2015, the first three months of 2017 paint a familiar picture to those following the earnings reports of the nation’s biggest publicly traded broadcast TV companies.

The company’s overall revenue slipped 0.4%, to $778.4 million, largely due to its digital division—not its media division, which is comprised of its broadcast TV stations.
