Sinclair Broadcast Group said on Tuesday that it would sell 23 stations if its merger with Tribune goes through, including three stations in top 10 markets — Chicago, Dallas and Houston.

The big picture: The deal with Tribune "further solidifies Sinclair's already massive hold on the local TV broadcast industry."
