Panel Discussion:
Permanent Consequences of the Sinclair-Tribune Merger
Wednesday, January 31, 2018 10:00-11:00 a.m.
Gold Room (2168 RHOB)

Dear Colleague,

Please join me on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. for a panel discussion on the implications of Sinclair Broadcast Group’s proposed merger with Tribune Media Co.

If approved, this merger would give Sinclair access to 72% of American households, changing the way Americans watch local news forever. With time running out, it is now more important than ever that we give this merger the scrutiny it deserves.

Last November, more than 45 of my colleagues and I sent a letter
to Sinclair asking a series of questions about the impact on consumers and local news operations, which Sinclair refused to answer.

A bipartisan panel of experts will discuss potential effects and consequences of the merger, and answer questions from staff.

To RSVP or for more information, please contact Anna Hevia at
