NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
Wolf Haldenstein Adler Freeman & Herz LLP is investigating claims on
behalf of investors of LIN Media LLC ("LIN" or the "Company") (NYSE:LIN)

Under the terms of the transaction, LIN shareholders will receive either
$27.82 in cash or 1.5762 shares of the new holding company for each
share of LIN stock. While the consideration offered represents a 29.5%
one day premium, at least one analyst set a target price of $32.00 per
share and LIN's stock recently traded above the offer price at $29.24
per share on January 9, 2014.
Additionally, on February 6, 2014, LIN issued its financial results for
the fourth quarter and full year 2013, reporting strong increases in net
revenues, local revenues, and interactive revenues. Specifically, LIN
reported annual revenues of $652.4 million, an 18% increase compared to
2012. In addition, the company reported a 35% increase in local revenues
