    AG Madigan files opposition to Tribune-Sinclair merger with FCC

  • Share
  • Attorney General Lisa Madigan announced her opposition Thursday to a proposed merger between Tribune Media Company and Sinclair Broadcast Group.

    If the merger goes through, the company would own or operate more than 200 stations nationwide — including Tribune-owned WGN-Channel 9, according to a statement from Madigan’s office.

    Madigan and attorneys general from Maryland, Massachusetts and Rhode Island filed comments with the Federal Communications Commission opposing the merger, arguing it would decrease consumer choice and the diversity of voices in the media marketplace.
