BOCA RATON, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 05/15/12 -- Hollywood Media Corp. (NASDAQ: HOLL) today reported financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2012.

On a continuing operations basis which includes the contribution from the Ad Sales and Intellectual Property divisions, net revenues for the 2012 first quarter were $0.7 million compared to $1.0 million in the prior-year period.

The Company had approximately 23.2 million weighted average shares outstanding in the 2012 first quarter compared to 28.1 million weighted average shares outstanding in the prior-year period.
