ITEM 5. INTERESTS OF NAMED EXPERTS AND COUNSEL.

         Alan D. Feld, the sole shareholder of a professional corporation which
is a partner of Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld, L.L.P., is a director of the
Registrant and, as of August 15, 2000 owned approximately 138,500 shares of
Common Stock, including presently exercisable options to acquire approximately
122,500 shares of Common Stock.

         Vernon E. Jordan, Jr., counsel to Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld,
L.L.P., is a director of the Registrant and was a director of AMFM Inc. prior to
the consummation of the Registrants acquisition of AMFM by merger of a
wholly-owned subsidiary with and into AMFM (the "Merger"). As of March 10, 2000,
Mr. Jordan owned approximately 33,333 shares of AMFM common stock, including
options to acquire approximately 33,333 shares of AMFM common stock. Upon
consummation of the Merger, Mr. Jordan's options to acquire AMFM common stock
were assumed by the Registrant and may now be exercised to acquire approximately
31,333 shares of Common Stock.

ITEM 6. INDEMNIFICATION OF DIRECTORS AND OFFICERS.

         Article 2.02-1 of the Texas Business Corporation Act provides for
indemnification of directors and officers in certain circumstances. In addition,
the Texas Miscellaneous Corporation Law provides that a corporation may amend
its Articles of Incorporation to provide that no director shall be liable to the
registrant or its shareholders for monetary damages for an act or omission in
the director's capacity as a director, provided that the liability of a director
is not eliminated or limited (i) for any breach of the director's duty of
loyalty to the registrant or its shareholders, (ii) for acts or omissions not in
good faith or which involve intentional misconduct or knowing violation of law,
(iii) any transaction from which such director derived an improper personal
benefit, or (iv) an act or omission for which the liability of a director is
expressly provided by an applicable statute. The registrant has amended its
Articles of Incorporation and added Article Eleven adopting such limitations on
a director's liability. The registrant's Articles of Incorporation also provide
in Article Nine, for indemnification of directors or officers in connection with
the defense or settlement of suits brought against them in their capacities as
directors or officers of the Company, except in respect of liabilities arising
from gross negligence or willful misconduct in the performance of their duties.

         Article IX(8) of the registrant's bylaws provides for indemnification
of any person made a party to a proceeding by reason of such person's status as
a director, officer, employee, partner or trustee of the Company, except in
respect of liabilities arising from negligence or misconduct in the performance
of their duties.

         An insurance policy obtained by the registrant provides for
indemnification of officers and directors of the registrant and certain other
persons against liabilities and expenses incurred by any of them in certain
stated proceedings and under certain stated conditions.

ITEM 9. UNDERTAKINGS.

        (a)     The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes:

                (1) To file, during any period in which offers or sales are
being made, a post-effective amendment to this Registration Statement:

                    (i) To include any prospectus required by Section 10(a)(3)
of the Securities Act of 1933;

                    (ii) To reflect in the prospectus any facts or events
arising after the effective date of the Registration Statement (or the most
recent post-effective amendment thereof) which, individually or in the
aggregate, represent a fundamental change in the information set forth in the
Registration Statement;

                    (iii) To include any material information with respect to
the plan of distribution not previously disclosed in the Registration Statement
or any material change to such information in the Registration Statement;
provided, however, that paragraphs (a)(1)(i) and (a)(1)(ii) do not apply if the
information required to be included in a post-effective amendment by those
paragraphs is contained in

<PAGE>   6

periodic reports filed by the Registrant pursuant to Section 13 or Section 15(d)
of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that are incorporated by reference in the
Registration Statement.

                (2) That, for the purpose of determining any liability under the
Securities Act of 1933, each such post-effective amendment shall be deemed to be
a new registration statement relating to the securities offered therein, and the
offering of such securities at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona
fide offering thereof.

                (3) To remove from registration by means of a post-effective
amendment any of the securities being registered which remain unsold at the
termination of the offering.

         (b) The undersigned Registrant hereby undertakes that, for purposes of
determining any liability under the Securities Act of 1933, each filing of the
Registrant's annual report pursuant to Section 13(a) or Section 15(d) of the
Securities Exchange Act of 1934 that is incorporated by reference in the
Registration Statement shall be deemed to be a new registration statement
relating to the securities offered therein, and the offering of such securities
at that time shall be deemed to be the initial bona fide offering thereof.

         (c) Insofar as indemnification for liabilities arising under the
Securities Act of 1933 may be permitted to directors, officers and controlling
persons of the Registrant pursuant to the foregoing provisions, or otherwise,
the Registrant has been advised that in the opinion of the Securities and
Exchange Commission such indemnification is against public policy as expressed
in the Securities Act and is, therefore, unenforceable. In the event that a
claim for indemnification against such liabilities (other than the payment by
the Registrant of expenses incurred or paid by a director, officer or
controlling person of the Registrant in the successful defense of any action,
suit or proceeding) is asserted by such director, officer or controlling person
in connection with the securities being registered, the Registrant will, unless
in the opinion of its counsel the matter has been settled by controlling
precedent, submit to a court of appropriate jurisdiction the question whether
such indemnification by it is against public policy as expressed in the
Securities Act and will be governed by the final adjudication of such issue.
