Description

Eddie Edwards is one of the few minority owners in the broadcast arena. He worked closely with Sinclair Broadcasting, who helped bring him into the business. But the business dealings have garnered scrutiny by the FCC and critics who see Sinclair dollars and programming flowing through Edward's Glencairn Ltd. Rainbow/PUSH alleges that Edwards is a minority figurehead that allowed Sinclair to manage a duopoly. Now that the FCC rules have relaxed, Edwards is trying to sell his stations to Sinclair, but the FCC has yet to grant approval.
