Sinclair, Mediacom Reach Retrans Deal

Jan 8, 2010  •  Post A Comment

A day before the extended deadline, Sinclair and Mediacom reached a retransmission consent deal, B&C reports.

No details on the one-year deal, covering 22 TV stations in 15 markets, were released. Sinclair President David Smith said the deal includes “an acceptable economic arrangement.”

Mediacom’s Tom Larsen, VP of public and legal affairs, said that while the company is happy to continue to be able to offer the programming, "We think the retrans process is broken and are going to seek to have that reformed in the next year, working with people like Senator John Kerry to help reform it."
