If the subject report could not be filed without unreasonable effort or expense and the registrant seeks relief pursuant to Rule 12b-25(b), the following should be completed. (Check box if appropriate)






The reason described in reasonable detail in Part III of this form could not be eliminated without unreasonable effort or expense;





The subject annual report, semi-annual report, transition report on Form 10-K, Form 20-F, Form 11-K, Form N-SAR or Form N-CSR, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifteenth calendar day following the prescribed due date; or the subject quarterly report or transition report on Form 10-Q or subject distribution report on Form 10-D, or portion thereof, will be filed on or before the fifth calendar day following the prescribed due date; and





The accountant’s statement or other exhibit required by Rule 12b-25(c) has been attached if applicable.




Spanish Broadcasting System, Inc. (the “Company”) is unable to timely file its Quarterly Report on Form 10-Q for the quarter ended March 31, 2020 (the “Form 10-Q”), originally due on May 15, 2020, due to disruptions resulting from the unprecedented interruption in its business caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. The Company has availed itself of a valid extension of the original deadline to file the Form 10-Q which rendered the report due on June 29, 2020. However, the Company has been unable to timely complete its review of the Form 10-Q due to the ongoing effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, which have limited the ability of the Company’s employees to conduct normal business activities.  Due to such limitations, the Company’s employees have been unable to complete their normal closing processes and internal reviews that are necessary to timely file the Form 10-Q.  The Company could not eliminate such limitations without unreasonable effort or expense. The Company expects to file the Form 10-Q no later than the fifth calendar day (or since the fifth calendar day falls on a Saturday, the next business day after the fifth calendar day) following the required filing date, as permitted by Rule 12b-25.
