BALTIMORE (November 22, 2013) -- Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: SBGI) (the “Company” or “Sinclair”) announced that it closed on the acquisition of the non-license assets of KRNV in Reno, Nevada from Intermountain West for $26.0 million and entered into an agreement to operate or provide sales services to the station. The purchase price represents a 5.2x multiple of the average 2012-2013 cash flow including synergies. We expect to drop our San Francisco news share on our FOX station and replace it with a local Reno newscast.
