Sinclair Broadcast Group has climbed over three other major television networks and now is in third place in TVNewsCheck/BIA Kelsey’s annual Top 30 rankings of station groups.
These rankings rate station groups by revenue from owned and operated television stations.

Fox Television Stations and CBS remain locked in their first and second place slots, and maintain comfortable leads over Sinclair, reports TV News Check. But Sinclair, which owns 112 TV stations, representing all the major networks, including Fox and CBS, reaches about 38 percent of all U.S. television households and is marking a rapid climb nationally.

To land in third place, Sinclair, which is based in Hunt Valley, Md., outside Baltimore, surpassed ABC/Disney, NBCUniversal and Tribune, which ended up in the fourth, fifth and eight-place spots. Last year, ABC was fourth; NBC was third, and Tribune was fifth, while Sinclair was in sixth place.
