MSG transactions for the first six months of 2010

The bad news is that is was a very slow first half of station trading. The good news is 1) it was a lot more active than a year ago, and 2) things are shaping up nicely for the second half. Here are the transactions announced by Media Services Group for the first six months (Note: we used BIA estimates of revenue):
