Three weeks ago, the third movement of Chopin’s Piano Sonata No. 2, a.k.a. the “Funeral March,” would have been appropriate bumper music for programs heard on Tribune Media‘s WGN-AM 720 or perhaps on newscasts of such Tribune stations as KTLA-5 in Los Angeles.
Tribune announced that it had terminated its merger agreement with Sinclair Broadcast Group and filed a lawsuit in the Delaware Chancery Court against Sinclair for breach of contract.
Now, Sinclair has fired back with its own breach of contract claims against Tribune and seeks monetary damages.
