In an effort to focus on larger markets, Cox Media Group has agreed to sell five stations in small markets to Sinclair Broadcast Group.
“All of these media locations are valued brands with talented professionals who are committed to their audiences, advertisers and communities,” Cox Media president Doug Franklin said in a statement. “We wish all of the employees well and know they will continue to work hard to produce quality entertainment, news and information for their customers and new owners.”
