FOX Loss For Sunbeam A Very Real Possibility


HOLLYWOOD, FLA. — On Wednesday, the future of Sunbeam Television‘s top-rated WSVN-7 in Miami-Fort Lauderdale was put into question as 21st Century FOX announced it was acquiring seven stations from Sinclair Broadcast Group by way of Tribune Media — a deal designed to move Sinclair’s merger with Tribune closer to fruition.

Among the stations FOX is snagging is WSFL-39, the CW affiliate serving South Florida.

This immediately put into question the future of WSVN’s FOX affiliation. On Friday afternoon, Sunbeam’s owner finally spoke up — and a loss of network affiliation is a very real possibility.
