Sinclair/Allbritton Deal Nearly Complete
The sale of Allbritton stations to Sinclair Broadcasting could be final by the end June. TV Spy reports with the recent deal for Sinclair to surrender the licenses of ABC affiliates in Charleston, SC, and Birmingham, AL, because of the FCC’s recent restrictions on joint sales agreements will make the purchase of the Allbritton properties complete by either the end of June or July.
It has been nearly a year since the potential sale of the Allbritton properties were first announced on July 29, 2013. The deal will include KATV/Channel 7/Little Rock.
