Sinclair, NPG consolidating some virtual duopolies onto one transmitter in General TV Posted January 11 · Edited January 11 by Myron Falwell 1 hour ago, tyrannical bastard said: These changes may be rooted to a recently passed law by Congress that effectively requires shell companies to disclose their true ownership... https://www.washingtonpost.com/us-policy/2020/12/11/anonymous-shell-company-us-ban/ Deerfield/Manhan is probably ok since Stephen Mumblow has no family connections to Sinclair, but the "trust" that owns Cunningham established after the passing of David Smith's mother may be questionable.... It might not be that far-fetched to see Cunningham reorganized into an Inyo-like group without the Smith family's involvement whatsoever. Inyo is operating the Ion stations Scripps cannot legally own as turnkey Ion affiliates, carrying the diginets on Scripps's behalf with next to no overhead and getting a nice revenue stream to boot. Why can't Sinclair do the same here? Cunningham clears all of Sinclair's diginets and gets a revenue stream, and Sinclair doesn't have to worry about any legal headaches, just to host their master controls (no main studios needed, either!).
