BALTIMORE (November 1, 2017) - Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: SBGI), the “Company” or “Sinclair,” today reported financial results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2017.

“This month, the Federal Communications Commission will be addressing certain deregulatory rulemakings for the television broadcast industry, recognizing that the competitive marketplace has changed and broadcasters actually do compete against everyone for viewers and advertising dollars.

Meanwhile, we continue to work with the required governmental agencies towards the successful acquisition of Tribune Media Company, expected to close in early 2018.”

CEO Comment:

Looking ahead to the fourth quarter, our expectation is for pro forma core advertising revenues, including Bonten, to grow mid-single digit percentage points over the same period last year.”

Mr. Ripley continued, “We continue to make progress in partnering with virtual MVPD providers for the carriage of our signals, adding several new distributors recently. In addition, we renewed several FOX and CBS
