List of stations owned or operated by Sinclair Broadcast Group

Sinclair Broadcast Group new logo.svg

Sinclair Broadcast Group is the largest owner of television stations in the United States, currently owning or operating a total of 173 conservative propaganda outlets across the country (233 after all currently proposed sales are approved) in nearly 80 markets, ranging from markets as large as Washington, D.C. to as small as Steubenville, Ohio.

The stations are affiliates of various television networks, including ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox as well as numerous specialty channels.

Many stations are owned outright by the company, while others are owned by legally distinct companies but operated by Sinclair through a local marketing agreement, a concept Sinclair pioneered in Pittsburgh in 1991 when the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) forbade duopolies. (The stations involved in the initial deal, WPGH-TV and WPTT — now WPNT — are now both owned by Sinclair outright.) Sinclair has established local marketing agreements with various companies, most notably Cunningham Broadcasting and Deerfield Media.[1]

  9. ^ a b c d e f g h i j k Station is owned by New Age Media or MPS Media and operated by Sinclair under a master service agreement.

  11. ^ a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s Station was owned by Barrington Broadcasting prior to its acquisition by Sinclair in 2013.

  13. ^ a b c d e f Station was owned by River City Broadcasting prior to its merger with Sinclair in 1997.
  14. ^ Station is owned by Cunningham Broadcasting and operated by Nexstar Media Group under a local marketing agreement.
  15. ^ Station is owned by Corporate Media Consultants Group (itself 49% owned by Max Media) and operated by Sinclair. The station's license assets are in the process of being transferred to Cunningham Broadcasting, pending FCC approval.
  16. ^ a b c Station was built and signed-on by Sinclair.
  17. ^ a b Station is nominally owned by Howard Stirk Holdings (owned by Armstrong Williams) and operated by Sinclair under local marketing agreements.

  20. ^ Station is owned by Granite Broadcasting and operated by Sinclair under a shared services agreement.
  21. ^ Station is owned by Manhan Media and operated by Sinclair under a shared services agreement.
  22. ^ Station's license is held by South West Oregon TV Broadcasting Corporation, which is 50% owned by Sinclair and 50% owned by California Oregon Broadcasting, Inc.
  23. ^ a b The station is owned by Horseshoe Curve Communications or Palm Television and operated by Sinclair under a master service agreement with Cunningham Broadcasting or Horseshoe Curve Communications.
  24. ^ Sinclair owned WPNT from its 1978 launch (as WPTT-TV) until selling it to its operations manager, Eddie Edwards, in 1991 after acquiring WPGH-TV; Edwards would sell the station back to Sinclair in 2000.
  25. ^ Station is owned by Tennessee Broadcasting, LP, an affiliate company of Beverly Hills-based Lambert Broadcasting, and its operations are managed by Sinclair under an outsourcing agreement. Sinclair filed an application to acquire the station outright under an FCC "failing station" waiver in July 2005 but the FCC has not acted on the application as of 2014—and will likely either reject the application or continue to not act on it unless Sinclair sells off either WZTV or WUXP due to current rules prohibiting one company from directly owning more than two full-power television stations in the same market.
  26. ^ Sinclair owned WEMT from 1998 until it was sold to Aurora Broadcasting in 2006; Sinclair reassumed control of the station in 2017 when then-owners Esteem Broadcasting sold the station to Cummingham Broadcasting.
  27. ^ The station was formerly a separate full-power station as WCGV-TV until January 2018, when its license was turned in to the FCC after the selling of its spectrum in the 2016 auction. In order to acquire Tribune's WITI in the same market, Sinclair chose to turn in WCGV's channel 25 digital license and merge its subchannels onto WVTV's, but was able to retain the former channel number, thus it continues to virtually operate as its own station despite being a subchannel of WVTV, but WITI would be able to be acquired as the new WCGV intellectual unit is a subchannel in technicality.
