Who’s Minding the Station? An Exploration of Shared Service Agreements within U.S. Local Television Markets

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In a struggling economy, some television station owners have turned to shared services agreements (SSAs) to keep their stations afloat, despite concerns that such business arrangements may violate FCC ownership policy. A national sample of local television stations (N=270) was analyzed to determine the proportion of shared services agreements existing within the United States. Findings reveal that mid-sized markets are the most common locations for such arrangements. Implications for news audiences and industry are addressed.
