Fox 45 Owner Looks To Sell Stations

Sinclair, one of the largest owners of broadcast stations in the U.S., is looking to sell more than 30% of its stations.

The company has hired Moelis as its investment banker and has identified more than 60 stations in various regions of the U.S. that it would be willing to sell, said the people, who asked not to be named because the discussions are private. Sinclair owns or operates 185 TV stations in 86 markets.

The stations are a mix of affiliates including Fox, NBC, ABC, CBS and the CW. If sold together, their average revenue for 2023 and 2024 is an estimated $1.56 billion, the people said. Sinclair is willing to sell all or some of the stations, which are in top markets like Minneapolis; Portland, Ore.; Pittsburgh; Austin, Texas and Fresno, Calif., among others.

No mention of any local stations.

Locally Sinclair owns Baltimore’s Fox 45 (WBFF), The CW Baltimore (WNUV), and My 24 (WUTB)
