Sinclair Deals WSYT Syracuse to Brady For $20 Million

Group had to offload Fox affiliate after Barrington buy

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.
