Tribune Intrigue

Where have we seen this movie before?

As rumors swirl about a possible Sinclair Broadcast Group/Tribune Media merger, there are new reports that 21st Century Fox and Nexstar may be circling for their own piece of the action.

The drama is reminiscent of last year’s attempted merger of Media General and Meredith – which failed and was replaced by a Nexstar takeover of Media General.

In any case, employees of Fox 61 and WCCT in Connecticut must be watching closely. The two stations are owned by Tribune Media.

According to several reports, Sinclair Broadcast Group has approached Tribune Media about a merger.

Such a deal would combine two of the largest broadcast groups in the country and would need regulatory approval. It is also likely such a combination would require the sale of some stations.
