The Board of Directors of The Gabelli Multimedia Trust Inc. (NYSE:GGT) declared a $0.375 per share cash distribution payable on December 27, 2005 to Preferred Shareholders of record on December 19, 2005.

The Preferred Shares, which trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol "GGT Pr B", are rated 'Aaa' by Moody's Investors Service and have an annual dividend rate of $1.50 per share. The Preferred Shares were issued on April 1, 2003 at $25.00 per share and pay distributions quarterly. The Preferred Shares will be callable at any time at the liquidation value of $25.00 per share plus accrued dividends following the expiration of the five-year call protection on April 1, 2008.

A portion of the distribution may be treated as long-term capital gain and qualified dividend income for individuals, each subject to the maximum Federal income tax rate, which is currently 15% in taxable accounts for individuals. Long-term capital gains, qualified dividend income and ordinary income, if any, will be allocated on a pro-rata basis to all distributions for the year. Based on earnings to date, the distribution would include approximately 44% from net investment income and 56% from capital gains. The final determination of the source of all distributions in 2005 will be made after year-end. All shareholders will receive written notification regarding the components and tax treatment for all 2005 distributions in early 2006 via Form 1099-DIV.
