The KOMO/KCPQ Combo

Seattle will have at least 2 TV stations owned by SINCLAIR, once this merger takes effect. KOMO 4 and KCPQ 13. The others, Joe TV KZJO and Univision will likely be sold off. Lay-offs should be expected by employees at both KOMO & KCPQ. SINCLAIR runs a lean operation. The motto for employees should be “more work for less.” Other corporate mergers are in the pipeline. The remaining TV channels could flip under new ownership and we might also see some rotation of network affiliations. Lennie the Cabbie says FOX might buy some of their affiliate stations to wrest control from SINCLAIR, which will have a huuuuge number of FOX affiliates in their fold post-merger. Could happen…Radio stations in Seattle and WGN Chicago might be sold off. SINCLAIR’s main focus is obviously on television. [pun intended]
