BRIEF: Sinclair takeover of Fisher gets FTC OK

Sinclair Broadcast Group's pending takeover of Seattle-based Fisher Communications has received the all-clear from the Federal Trade Commission.

The deal, which was announced earlier this year, still needs the approval of the FCC and Fisher's shareholders; the FCC seems likely to grant its OK; as for the latter, one might say they're not completely on board.

Sinclair owns and/or operates several stations seen on the fringes of the Tri-State, including two in the Cape Girardeau/Paducah/Harrisburg market (KBSI and WDKA), one in St. Louis (KDNL), and three in Nashville (WZTV, WUXP and WNAB).
