Robert Allbritton on Sinclair Deal: ‘It’s Great To Do a Deal, But it’s Kind of Tough to Walk Away’

robert allbrittonOn the heels of the FCC’s approval of the Sinclair-Allbritton deal, Robert Allbritton talks to Politico (also owned by Albritton Communications) about his thoughts on getting out of the television business:

“Hey it’s great to do a deal, but it’s kind of tough to walk away. I’ve been doing this 20 years personally, and you don’t walk away from that without some thoughts,” Robert Allbritton said in an interview. “It’s going to be a good business for a while to come, but man, I’m 45 and I don’t know if it’s going to be a good business for the rest of my life.”

Allbritton said Internet-based communications are the way things are headed. “What you guys at POLITICO are doing is the future,” he said. “It’s just the way media is changing now, and man, is it changing fast.”
