Sinclair Broadcasting already has television stations in Madison (Fox 47) and Milwaukee (the CW18/My24 tandem), and now they are buying into another Wisconsin TV market, buying up WLUK (FOX) and WCWF (CW) from LIN TV, which had to give up on either those stations or WBAY (they're in the process of buying WBAY's owner, Media General).
Sinclair were probably chomping at the bit in wanting to acquire WLUK: The Fox affiliate in the Packers' home market, in a political swing state (i.e. lots of ad money in campaign years), and with a prominent news operation. Care to opine on how this could effect their Madison and/or Milwaukee stations?
