TV Advertising Lawsuit Targets Sinclair and Tribune for Antitrust Violations

Audet & Partners, LLP is investigating claims on behalf of purchasers of television advertising that two of the largest broadcasting companies in the United States have conspired for several years to artificially inflate the cost of television advertising.   Claims made in a recent TV advertising lawsuit allege that Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. and Tribune Broadcasting Company, LLC illegally shared proprietary information about their respective advertising rates through channels that included sales teams and industry-wide trade groups.

As shown in the graphs below, revenues of both Sinclair and Tribune have risen sharply in recent years at a time when television advertising has otherwise seen sharp decline.
