ITEM 1.01.                      Entry into a Material Definitive Agreement
 
On December 19, 2012, Radio One, Inc., a Delaware corporation (the “Company” or the “Borrower”), entered into a certain First Amendment to Credit Agreement (the “First Amendment”), dated as of December 19, 2012, by and among the Company, the subsidiary guarantors listed on the signature pages thereto, the lenders party thereto (the “Consenting Lenders”), and Credit Suisse AG (“Credit Suisse”), as administrative agent and as collateral agent.   As further described below, the First Amendment amended certain terms and covenants of that certain Credit Agreement, dated as of March 31, 2011 (the “Credit Agreement”) by and among the Company, various lenders from time to time party thereto (the “Lenders”) and  Credit Suisse, as administrative agent and as collateral agent.  Unless otherwise defined herein, all capitalized terms used herein and in the First Amendment are in the Credit Agreement.
 
A. Effects of First Amendment to Credit Agreement
 
Certain Definitions.  The First Amendment revised certain definitions provided in the Credit Agreement as set forth below:

1. The definition of “Applicable Soft Call Percentage” in Section 1.01 of the Credit Agreement was amended by deleting that definition in its entirety and inserting the following new definition in lieu thereof:
 
Applicable Soft Call Percentage” shall mean, with respect to any prepayment or repayment of Term Loans of the type described in Section 4.01(f) or the effectiveness of any Repricing Transaction made or consummated during any period, (i) in the case of the period from and after the Initial Borrowing Date to but excluding the first anniversary of the Initial Borrowing Date, 3%, (ii) in the case of the period from and after the first anniversary of the Initial Borrowing Date to but excluding September 30, 2014, 2%, (iii) in the case of the period from and after September 30, 2014 to but excluding the fourth anniversary of the Initial Borrowing Date, 1%, and (iv) at any time on or after the fourth anniversary of the Initial Borrowing Date, 0%.
 
The effect of this definitional change was a six-month extension of the Credit Agreement’s 102 call premium to September 2014 while reducing the time for the 101 soft call premium from one year to six months.
 
2. The definition of “Consolidated Net Indebtedness” in Section 1.01 of the Credit Agreement was amended by deleting the dollar amount “$25,000,000” appearing in that definition and inserting the dollar amount “$35,000,000” in lieu thereof.   The effect of this definitional change was to increase the amount of cash the Company can net for determining its Consolidated Net Indebtedness from $25 million to $35 million.
 
3. The definition of “Consolidated Net Senior Secured Indebtedness” in Section 1.01 of the Credit Agreement was amended by deleting the dollar amount “$25,000,000” appearing in that definition and inserting the dollar amount “$35,000,000” in lieu thereof. The effect of this definitional change was to increase the amount of cash the Company can net for determining its Consolidated Net Senior Secured Indebtedness from $25 million to $35 million.

                1. The Interest Coverage Ratio set forth in the Credit Agreement was revised to provide that the Borrower will not permit the Interest Expense Coverage Ratio for any Test Period ending on the last day of any Fiscal Quarter of the Borrower set forth below to be less than the ratio set forth opposite such Fiscal Quarter below:
