Appointment of Certain Officers; Compensatory Arrangements of Certain Officers.

(c) Effective January 1, 2014, the Board of Directors of LIN Media LLC (the "Company") appointed John A. Howell IV as Vice President Television. Mr. Howell was also appointed as Vice President Television of LIN Television Corporation ("LIN Television"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Company. Mr. Howell's appointment was previously announced by the Company on September 27, 2013.

Mr. Howell, age 46, joined the Company in 2002 as President and General Manager of WPRI-TV in Providence, Rhode Island and was promoted to the position of Vice President Regional Television of LIN Television in 2012.

On January 6, 2014, the Company and LIN Television entered into an employment agreement with Mr. Howell to serve in the position of Vice President Television, effective January 1, 2014 ("Employment Agreement").

The Employment Agreement provides that the employment term will continue unless terminated by Mr. Howell or the Company. Mr. Howell is entitled to a base salary in the amount of $350,000 and is also eligible to earn an annual bonus, consisting of a target discretionary performance bonus and a target budget-based objective performance bonus, of $175,000. The actual amount of the bonus is calculated as described in more detail in the Employment Agreement. Mr. Howell is eligible to participate in employee benefit plans and programs on a similar basis as other senior executives of the Company.

If Mr. Howell's employment is terminated by the Company "without cause" or by Mr. Howell for "good reason", as defined in the Employment Agreement, Mr. Howell is entitled to receive certain benefits. Generally, Mr. Howell will be entitled to receive as a severance payment an amount equal to his annual base salary plus a payment equal to the annual bonus he earned in the prior year and the Company will also continue to pay the employer's portion of his health and dental insurance premiums for twelve months. In the event of a termination in connection with a change in control of the Company, Mr. Howell is entitled to receive a severance payment of two times the amount equal to his annual base salary and prior year's bonus plus a continuation of health and welfare benefits for a period of twenty-four months.

The Employment Agreement also includes non-competition and non-solicitation provisions that are in effect during the term of the Employment Agreement and for one year thereafter.
