Media companies expect a tough quarter for TV advertising, with no live sports and spending delayed
Total ESPN ad revenue was down 8% in the second quarter as "higher rates were more than offset by lower average viewership." It said it anticipates ad revenue will "materially weaken" even further as sports continue to be postponed. Fox, which receives more than 40% of its annual ad revenue from sports, said little of that revenue has been impacted so far by shutdowns. He said the company anticipates ad revenue in the second quarter will be down in the range of about 30% year over year. Though it's typically TV upfront commitment season, that's taking on very different form as TV companies say they're having much more flexible conversations with advertisers.cnbc.com

Brian Kemp announced earlier this week that restrictions on businesses would be lifted on Friday. Tattoo parlors, gyms and hair salons can reopen then, if they adhere to social distancing and sanitary requirements.cnbc.com
