Tribune/Sinclair Merger Could Change Indy TV News

Sinclair Broadcast Group is eyeing a merger with Tribune Media.

The nearly $4 billion deal would add another 42 stations to Sinclair's armada of stations including two stations here in Indianapolis.  Tribune-owned WXIN and WTTV or, as they are more commonly known Fox 59 and CBS 4, would join an army of over 200 stations if the the FCC approves the merger of the two media groups.  It could also make a difference in what news gets delivered in our city and how it is reported.

John Oliver of Last Week Tonight took a good and in-depth look at the landscape and the reality of what could be coming to our town.
