NEW YORK (AP) -- Sinclair Broadcast wants to "Stirr" up streaming. The nation's largest owner of television stations launched a free, ad-supported streaming service Wednesday drawing on local news, sports and other programs from the 191 TV stations it owns in 89 U.S. markets. Sinclair said the motivation behind Stirr is in part to help viewers "access the local news and lifestyle programming that is relevant to their everyday life."
Nexstar Media Group Inc said on Monday it had agreed to buy Chicago-based peer Tribune Media Company for about $4.1 billion in cash, a deal that would make it the largest regional U.S. TV station operator.
