[$$] Sinclair Changes TV Station Divestiture Plans to Address Regulator’s Deal Concerns
Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. said Wednesday it will change divestiture plans for three television stations to sweeten its chances of winning approval for its acquisition of Tribune Media Co. and appease criticism from U.S. regulators. Sinclair said it would find a different buyer for stations in Dallas and Houston instead of Cunningham Broadcasting Corp. and it would simply acquire Tribune Media-owned WGN in Chicago. The companies had planned for WGN to be sold to an entity named WGN TV LLC and that Sinclair would provide support to the station on sales and services in an agreement with the new owner.

[$$] Ajit Pai and Sinclair
Media content companies and telecom delivery systems are fast converging, which has propelled Sinclair Broadcast Group’s merger with Tribune Media. Pity Federal Communications Commission Chairman Ajit Pai, who must manage this economic change with outdated communications laws. Liberals love to hate Sinclair because its programming leans conservative, and for months they have derided Mr. Pai as a subsidiary of the Smith family-owned network because he has eased regulations to facilitate the Tribune tie-up.

U.S. agency votes to refer Sinclair Tribune merger to administrative judge
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission said late on Wednesday it had voted unanimously to refer Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc's (SBGI.O) $3.9 billion acquisition of Tribune Media Co (TRCO.N) to an administrative law judge, a blow to the firms' chances of winning approval. The decision came despite the company's announcement it would not divest three television stations currently owned by Tribune in hopes of winning approval after FCC Chairman Ajit Pai raised "serious concerns" on Monday. Two FCC officials who did not wish to be identified said Wednesday they believe the merger will not be able to proceed.

Two FCC officials who did not wish to be identified said Wednesday they believe the merger will not be able to proceed. Sinclair, which owns the largest number of local TV stations in the U.S., had said it will drop plans to divest stations in Dallas, Chicago and Houston to "expedite" the transaction after the FCC suggested the company would still control the stations.

Sinclair Offer to Alter Tribune Deal Fails to Avert Hearing
The U.S. Federal Communications Commission will send Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc.’s $3.9 billion deal to buy Tribune Media Co. to a hearing, brushing aside the broadcaster’s offer to revise divestiture plans to meet the agency’s objections. Chairman Ajit Pai won unanimous support from his fellow commissioners late Wednesday for an order calling for a hearing before an administrative law judge, the FCC said in an email. Such a hearing could kill the deal because it freezes the companies in place with no resolution, possibly for months.

Sinclair Broadcast Group will amend divestiture plans in response to FCC's concerns
Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. will amend some of its previously-announced divestitures ahead of its acquisition of Tribune Media Company (TRCO) Sinclair (SBGI) announced Wednesday. The amendments are in response to Federal Communications Commission chairman Ajit Pai's comments earlier this week about his concern that "certain station divestitures that have been proposed to the FCC would allow Sinclair to control those stations in practice, even if not in name, in violation of the law." Sinclair has withdrawn pending divestitures of stations in Dallas and Houston to Cunningham Broadcasting Corporation, and plans to request permission to put the stations into a divestiture trust that will be operated and sold by an independent trustee.

Harsh FCC Tone Signals Rough Road for Sinclair's Tribune Deal
Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc.’s tough path to approval for buying Tribune Media Co. grew even more difficult after regulators slammed the proposal as dishonest and potentially illegal in unusually harsh language. The proposed order is said to mention possible misrepresentations or lack of candor regarding Sinclair’s proposed sale of WGN-TV to a car dealer who is a business associate of a top Sinclair executive. “The candor question changes everything,” Gigi Sohn, a former FCC official, said in an interview.

Stephens Upgrades Tribune, Says Sinclair Deal Will Close In Its Current Form
Tribune Company (NYSE: TRCO) plunged 15 percent Monday after the chair of the Federal Communications Commission expressed “serious concerns” about its buyout by Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc (NASDAQ: SBGI) and weighed an administrative trial. “We believe the public threat of a Hearing Designation Order from the FCC was a very effective means of negotiating with SBGI, and that SBGI’s public response was the only sensible way forward,” he wrote in a note. “We believe SBGI remains the best buyer of TRCO’s assets given SBGI’s intense focus on scale, its leading role in ATSC 3.0 as an emergent business model and its apparent willingness to engage regulators,” he wrote.
