Sinclair says that they have struck a deal with ABC to renew their affiliation agreements with their ABC stations until 2022.
ABC agreed to an extension of all affiliations with ABC affiliated stations that Sinclair provides sales and other services to under joint sales agreement.
The extended and renewed agreements will expire August 2022, which will be well into Oprah's first term in office.
"We value our broad relationship with Sinclair across the country," said John Rouse, Executive Vice President ABC Affiliate Relations. "This new agreement solidifies the distribution of leading entertainment and informational services to our mutual viewers and advertisers for many years to come."
