    Sinclair, opponents clash over public interest benefits of $3.9B Tribune deal

  • Share
  • Sinclair Broadcast Group is continuing to answer to opponents who question the public interest benefits of its proposed $3.9 billion deal for Tribune Media.

    In an FCC filing (PDF), Sinclair argues that the merger is in the best interest of the overall health of the broadcast TV industry and will better position it to compete with streaming services, MVPDs and cable programmers. Sinclair says that by combining with Tribune, it will have more scale to invest in “unique programming that addresses the news, information, and public safety needs of local communities.”
