— During Sinclair Broadcasting’s fourth-quarter earnings, the company indicated that it might look to acquire more television stations. President/CEO David Smith said, “If we see opportunities to go after acquisitions, then we’ll certainly consider them the same way we considered Freedom and Four Points. We’re prepared to get bigger if need be – if we see the benefit of leverage associated with it.” The company could reportedly be looking for “Big Four” affiliates–aka CBS, ABC, NBC and Fox–in mid-sized markets.
