“When I reflect back to 1971 when we operated one television station in Baltimore, it really is remarkable what we have built over the years; to have become not only the largest television broadcaster in the country with 161 television stations, but the largest producer of local news content in the country,” commented David Smith, president and CEO of Sinclair. “The television broadcast industry continues to reinvent itself despite emerging media and will continue to do so as we become multi-platformed, create new revenue streams and transition to a next generation broadcast platform. Our amazing journey has been a collective effort by past and present employees, and we thank Nasdaq for their trading support over these many years.”

SBG has 161 television stations in 79 markets, and with affiliations with all the major networks.
