Sinclair Scores A Victory With WHP Exclusivity Win


The owner of the CBS affiliate serving the state capital of Pennsylvania and its surrounding communities, which airs MyNetwork TV programming on this station’s DT-2 subchannel, has just been granted a waiver request by the FCC’s Media Bureau.

The request puts a stamp of approval on a waiver of the “significantly viewed exception to the network non-duplication and syndicated exclusivity rules,” known in Commission parlance as 47 CFR §§ 76.92(f) and 76.106(a).

The loser in this battle, which involves viewers in the cities of Elizabethtown and Lancaster, is CBS Corp. 

The winner is Sinclair Broadcast Group.
