With respect to the Seller Pension Plan, Business Employees shall cease to accrue benefits and service credits under such Plan as of the Closing. As soon as practicable following the Closing, the Company shall cause its actuary to calculate the amount of assets to be allocated to the TV Employees Pension Plan for the benefit of the Business Employees and Beneficiaries. Such allocation shall be calculated under Section 414(l)(2) of the Code, without regard to paragraph 2(d) thereof. The Company shall

cause the amount of assets (the "Section 414 Amount") (determined as of the end of the month in which the Closing occurs) to be transferred to the Trust. The Company shall not amend the Seller Pension Plan or the TV Employees Pension Plan to 100% vest Business Employees' benefits under such Plans.

(B) All transfers to the TV Employees Pension Plan shall be made in accordance with the provisions of this Section 5.2(i). As soon as practicable, but in no event after the later of (i) 30 days after the Closing Date or (ii) 45 days after the filing of Form 5310A by the Seller Pension Plan ("Initial Transfer Date"), the Company shall

As soon as practicable, but in no event after the later of (i) 30 days after the Closing Date or (ii) 45 days after the filing of Form 5310A by the Seller Pension Plan ("Initial Transfer Date"), the Company shall cause its trust to make an initial transfer of assets in cash equal to at least 80% of the amount estimated by the Company in good faith to be equal to X (as defined below) ("Initial Transfer Amount"). As soon as practicable after the final determination of the amounts to be transferred ("True-Up Date"), the Company shall, except as otherwise provided herein, cause a second transfer to be made in cash of the "True-Up Amount." The True-Up Amount shall be equal to the sum of the following amount with respect to the Seller Pension Plan: (X minus Initial Transfer Amount), minus benefit payments and reasonable administration expenses attributable to Business Employees and Beneficiaries, adjusted for Earnings, where X equals the Section 414 Amount. "Earnings" shall be calculated (i) from the date as of which the Section 414 Amount is determined until the Initial Transfer Date on the amount equal to the Initial Transfer Amount using the rate paid on a 90-day Treasury Bill on the auction date coincident with or immediately preceding the Closing, (ii) on an amount equal to X minus the sum of the Initial Transfer Amount plus benefit payments and reasonable administrative expenses attributable to Business Employees and Beneficiaries using (A) with respect to the period from the Initial Transfer to the last day of the month preceding the True-Up Date, the cumulative rate of return (considering both gain and loss) earned or lost on the assets of the trust from which the True-Up Amount is being transferred and (B) with respect to the period from the first day of the month in which the True-Up Date occurs to the True-Up Date the rate paid on a 90-Day Treasury Bill on the auction date coincident with or immediately preceding the first day of the

The Company shall provide any actuary designated by Purchaser with all information reasonably necessary to review the calculation of the Section 414 Amount in all material respects and to verify that such calculations have been performed in a manner consistent with the terms of this Agreement. If there is a good faith dispute between the Company's actuary and the Purchaser's actuary as to the amount to be transferred to any plan, and such dispute remains unresolved for 15 days, the chief financial officers of the respective companies shall endeavor to resolve the issue.

("Ackerley"), Purchaser has agreed to transfer to Ackerley, or directly to an affiliate of Ackerley, the assets and business of Station WOKR-TV, and Ackerley has agreed to acquire, or to cause such affiliate to acquire, such assets and business and to assume certain liabilities related to or arising from or in connection with such assets or business; WHEREAS, Ackerley's rights under the Ackerley Agreement have been assigned to its wholly owned subsidiary Central NY News, Inc.

The failure of any party to assert any of its rights hereunder shall not constitute a waiver of any such rights. 10.7 SEVERABILITY. If any term or other provision of this Agreement is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced by any Law or public policy, all other terms and provisions of this Agreement shall nevertheless remain in full force and effect so long as the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated hereby is not affected in any manner materially adverse to any party. Upon such determination that any term or other provision is invalid, illegal or incapable of being enforced, the parties hereto shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the original intent of the parties as closely as possible in an acceptable manner in order that the transactions contemplated hereby are consummated as originally contemplated to the greatest extent possible. 10.8 AMENDMENT.

This Agreement may not be amended or modified except (a) by an instrument in writing signed by, or on behalf of, the Company and Purchaser or (b) by a waiver in accordance with Section 10.6 hereof. 10.9 EFFECT AND CONSTRUCTION OF THIS AGREEMENT. This Agreement embodies the entire agreement and understanding of the parties with respect to the subject matter hereof and supersedes any and all prior agreements, arrangements and understandings, whether written or oral, relating to matters provided for herein.

Disclosure of any fact or item in the Disclosure Schedule referenced by a particular paragraph or section in this Agreement shall, should the existence of the fact or item or its contents be relevant to any other paragraph or section, be deemed to be disclosed with respect to that other paragraph or section whether or not a specific cross reference appears, if the disclosure in respect of the one paragraph or section is reasonably sufficient to inform the reader of the information required to be disclosed in respect such other paragraph or section. - 74 -

Time shall be of the essence in enforcing and applying the covenants and conditions set forth in this Agreement. The headings of the sections and subsections of this Agreement are inserted as a matter of convenience and for reference purposes only and in no respect define, limit or describe the scope of this Agreement or the intent of any section or subsection. This Agreement may be executed in one or more counterparts and by the different parties hereto in separate counterparts, each of which when executed shall be deemed to be an original but all of which taken together shall constitute one and the same agreement. This Agreement and the rights and duties of the parties hereunder shall be governed by, and construed in accordance with, the laws of the State of New York, without giving effect to the conflicts of law principles thereof (other than Section 5-1401 of the New York General Obligations Law). 10.10 TRANSFER AND CONVEYANCE TAXES. Purchaser and the Company shall each be liable for and shall pay one-half of all applicable sales, transfer, recording, deed, stamp and other similar non-income taxes, imposed in connection with transfers and conveyances of the Assets, including, without limitation, any real property transfer or gains taxes (if any), resulting from the consummation of the transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

Buyer shall incur no liability to Sellers for any uncollected account, other than as a result of Buyer's breach of its obligations under this Section 6.7. Prior to the end of the third full calendar month after any Closing, neither Sellers nor any agent of Sellers shall make any direct solicitation of the account debtors for payment. After the end of the third full calendar month after any Closing, Sellers shall have the right, at their expense, to assist and participate with 33

Buyer and Sellers agree that the fair market value of the Assets of the Stations (the "Fair Market Value of the Assets") will be appraised by the appraisal firm of BIA, whose expenses will be borne one-half (1/2) by Buyer and one-half (1/2) by Sellers.

Buyer and Sellers shall each file with their respective federal income tax return for the tax year in which any Closing occurs, IRS Form(s) 8594 (and Form 8824 to the extent applicable) containing the information agreed upon by the parties pursuant to the immediately preceding sentence.

Under no circumstance shall the preparation of any financial statements pursuant to such audits and reviews (i) require any Seller to change or modify any accounting policy, (ii) cause any unreasonable disruption in the business or operations of any Station, or (iii) cause any delay that is more than de minimis in any internal reporting requirements of any Seller. All costs and expenses incurred in connection with the preparation of (and assimilation of relevant information for) the audits and reviews of financial information shall be paid by Sellers; provided, Buyer shall promptly pay upon presentation of any invoice, as a non-refundable prepayment of the Purchase Price, for all charges incurred in connection with such audit to the extent relating to work performed on or after July 26, 1999 (such charges, the "Section 6.9 Amount") (it being understood that the hourly charges of Sellers' accountants for the period of time for which Buyer is responsible may be greater than the hourly charges incurred by Sellers). 34

In the event any Environmental Assessment discloses any conditions contrary to any representations and warranties (determined without regard to any Knowledge qualifier therein) or any potential that such conditions may exist, the Buyer may conduct or have conducted at its expense additional testing to confirm or negate the existence of any such conditions. If any such Environmental Assessment or additional testing reflects the existence of any such conditions at any Owned Real Property or, to the extent caused by any of the Assets, at any of the Leased Real Property, and if, and only if, the cost of remediation, when aggregated with costs or remediation as to the Kansas City Stations, exceeds One Hundred Thousand Dollars ($100,000.00), in the aggregate for all parcels of the Real Property to be conveyed by Sellers hereunder and the Kansas City Sellers pursuant to the Kansas City Agreement shall cause the conditions to be remedied as quickly as possible (and in all events prior to Closing for any Radio Group for which such property is used in the operation of any Station in such Radio Group) such that no conditions contrary to the representations and warranties (determined with regard to any knowledge qualifier contained therein) of this Agreement exist; provided, however, that Sellers shall not be obligated to expend in the aggregate for all parcels of the Real Property of Stations and the Kansas City Stations in excess of Three Million Dollars ($3,000,000.00) to effect such remediation for all Real Property to be conveyed hereunder and under the Kansas City Agreement.

In such event, Buyer may require Sellers to proceed to the Closing of the Stations or of one or more Radio Groups, as the case may be, and at any such Closing, the purchase price for any of the Stations acquired at such Closing shall be reduced by the estimated cost of remediation for that portion of the Owned Real Property to be acquired at such Closing, not to exceed in the aggregate for all Closings the Unexpended Remediation Amount. Alternatively, Buyer may terminate this Agreement, and Sellers shall have no liability to Buyer as a result of such termination. Such Environmental Assessments shall not relieve Sellers of any obligation with respect to any representation, warranty, or covenant of Sellers in this Agreement or waive any condition to Buyer's obligations under this Agreement. The cost of completing the Environmental Assessments shall be paid by Buyer. 6.15.2 Nothing in this Section 6.15 shall be deemed to extend the date on which any Closing would otherwise occur under this Agreement. 38

In the event that Sellers (and their Affiliates) cease to own and/or program a material percentage of television broadcast stations located in the same designated market areas as radio broadcast stations owned and/or programmed by Buyer (or its Affiliates), Sellers and Buyer shall negotiate in good faith to permit Buyer to expend an appropriate amount of the advertising buy required by this Section 6.16 on television broadcast stations previously owned and/or programmed by Sellers (and its Affiliates), which expenditure on such television stations shall be counted for purposes of Buyer's satisfaction of its obligation to purchase the $5,000,000 aggregate amount of advertising time. 6.17 Adverse Developments.

Buyer covenants and agrees to participate and fully cooperate with Sellers (and any qualified intermediary (as that term is defined in the Code) involved in the Tax Deferred Exchange), in the event of an Election, so long as such participation and cooperation does not have an adverse effect on Buyer. To the extent that any provision in this Section 6.22 or in this Agreement shall be found inconsistent with or in violation of any of the terms of Section 1031 of the Code, such provision shall be null and void, all other provisions of this Agreement shall remain in full force and effect, and the parties shall endeavor to agree upon alternative provisions that affect a "Tax Deferred Exchange" of property in such manner as will comply with Section 1031 of the Code.

(c) With respect to any claim by a third party as to which the Claimant is entitled to indemnification under this Agreement, the Indemnifying Party shall have the right at its own expense, to participate in or assume control of the defense of such claim, and the Claimant shall cooperate fully with the Indemnifying Party, subject to reimbursement for actual out-of-pocket expenses incurred by the Claimant as the result of a request by the Indemnifying Party, provided, however, that Indemnifier may not assume control of the defense unless it affirms in writing its obligation to indemnify Claimant for any damages incurred by Claimant with respect to such third-party claim. If the Indemnifying Party elects to assume control of the defense of any third-party claim, the Claimant shall have the right to participate in the defense of such claim at its own expense. If the Indemnifying Party does not elect to assume control or otherwise participate in the defense of any third-party claim, it shall be bound by the results obtained in good faith by the Claimant with respect to such claim. (d) If a claim, whether between the parties or by a third party, requires immediate action, the parties will make every effort to reach a decision with respect thereto as expeditiously as possible. (e) The indemnification rights provided in Section 10.2 and Section 10.3 shall extend to the members, partners, shareholders, officers, directors, employees, representatives and affiliated entities of any Claimant although for the purpose of the procedures set forth in this Section 10.4, any indemnification claims by such parties shall be made by and through the Claimant. 10.5 Certain Limitations. (a) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, neither party shall indemnify or otherwise be liable to the other party with respect to any claim for any breach of a representation or warranty, or for the breach of any covenant contained in this Agreement, unless notice of the claim is given within the relevant survival period specified in Section 10.1. (b) Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, but except as otherwise 50

provided in this subsection (b) and Schedule 10.5, Sellers shall not be liable to Buyer in respect of any indemnification hereunder except to the extent that (i) the aggregate amount of losses of Buyer, when aggregated with the amount of losses with respect to the Kansas City Stations pursuant to the Kansas City Agreement, if any, exceeds One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) (the "Threshold Amount") (and then only to the extent such losses, when aggregated with the amount of losses with respect to the Kansas City Stations pursuant to the Kansas City Agreement, if any, exceed the excess of Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000)) over an amount (not in excess of $100,000) which Sellers are not required to expend in environmental remediation as a result of the Environmental Threshold Amount (such excess being the "Excess Amount"), and (ii) the aggregate amount of losses of Buyer, when aggregated with the amount of losses with respect to the Kansas City Stations pursuant to the Kansas City Agreement, if any, is less than the excess of Fifty Million Dollars) ($50,000,000) over any amounts expended by Buyer pursuant to Section 6.15 (as aggregated with the Kansas City Stations as set forth therein), or with respect to which Buyer receives a

provided in this subsection (b) and Schedule 10.5, Sellers shall not be liable to Buyer in respect of any indemnification hereunder except to the extent that (i) the aggregate amount of losses of Buyer, when aggregated with the amount of losses with respect to the Kansas City Stations pursuant to the Kansas City Agreement, if any, exceeds One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) (the "Threshold Amount") (and then only to the extent such losses, when aggregated with the amount of losses with respect to the Kansas City Stations pursuant to the Kansas City Agreement, if any, exceed the excess of Five Hundred Thousand Dollars ($500,000)) over an amount (not in excess of $100,000) which Sellers are not required to expend in environmental remediation as a result of the Environmental Threshold Amount (such excess being the "Excess Amount"), and (ii) the aggregate amount of losses of Buyer, when aggregated with the amount of losses with respect to the Kansas City Stations pursuant to the Kansas City Agreement, if any, is less than the excess of Fifty Million Dollars) ($50,000,000) over any amounts expended by Buyer pursuant to Section 6.15 (as aggregated with the Kansas City Stations as set forth therein), or with respect to which Buyer receives a proration in its favor under Section 6.15 (such excess being the "Indemnity Cap"); provided, the foregoing shall not be applicable to any amounts owed in connection with the Purchase Price or the proration adjustment thereof. In determining whether Sellers shall be obligated to indemnify Buyer under this Section 10, once the Threshold Amount has been satisfied, each representation and warranty and each covenant contained in this Agreement for which indemnity may be sought hereunder shall be read solely for purposes of determining whether a breach of such representation, warranty or covenant has occurred without regard to materiality (including Material Adverse Effect) qualifications that may be contained therein. (c) Notwithstanding any other provision of this Agreement to the contrary, in no event shall a party be entitled to indemnification for such party's consequential or punitive damages, regardless of the theory of recovery. Each party hereto agrees to use reasonable efforts to mitigate any losses which form the basis for any claim for indemnification hereunder. SECTION 11: MISCELLANEOUS 11.1 Fees and Expenses.
