Brian Brady, former Fox affiliates board chairman, has agreed to acquire WSYT Syracuse and W16AX Ithaca (N.Y.) from Sinclair Broadcast Group for $20 million.

BIA/Kelsey previously reported the deal, which Brady confirmed.

WSYT is a Fox affiliate. Syracuse is DMA No. 84.

Sinclair announced it would sell WSYT after it agreed to acquire the Barrington group in February for $370 million. That group includes NBC affiliate WSTM Syracuse.

Brady's acquisitions of late include KYMA Yuma and a trio in Medford-Klamath Falls, Ore.
