There wasn’t much to love about iHeartMedia’s 2017: its revenue slid and it recorded a net loss and tumbled 26 spots on the Fortune 500 as a result. Formerly Clear Channel Communications, the Texas-based media company has a large outdoor advertising business and is the U.S.’s largest operator of radio stations, but suffocated under debt from a $17.9 billion leveraged buyout in 2008 and amid competition from music streaming services. In early 2018, it filed for bankruptcy in an effort to restructure its balance sheet.
