YouTube Revenues Beat Many Local TV Stations

YouTube revenue estimates (from Markus Frind's blog) make YouTube bigger than many .. check that .. most local TV stations in the USA. In a city like Baltimore, for example, total TV revenues are about $170M / year, distributed among 5-6 local stations and the local cable guys .... so they average $30M or so. Their costs are significant, and they would create about $12-$14 M in free cash flow.

Hello YouTube. All volunteer content .. just collect $1.8 M per month. Nice, eh?
