Sinclair Said Close to Buying Tribune for About $45 a Share

Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. is close to buying Tribune Media Co., a deal made possible after the Federal Communications Commission voted last month to ease a limit on TV-station ownership in the U.S.

The acquisition of Tribune would give Sinclair TV stations in big media markets like New York, Chicago and Miami, strengthening its hand in negotiations with pay-TV distributors and major broadcast networks. The larger scale also would help the combined company face down online competitors vying for a piece of the local advertising pie.

Ryan Seacrest Joins Kelly Ripa as Co-Host of ABC’s ‘Live’

“Live With Kelly and Ryan” will face an aggressive ratings push in the fall from NBC, which will put Megyn Kelly in the 9 a.m. weekday slot that Ms. Ripa has long dominated.

“It’s making sure the show is in the right hands — one day, eventually, I’m sure of it, I will retire,” Ms. Ripa, 46, who has been a “Live” host since 2001, said by phone. “And Ryan Seacrest, who is a seamless broadcaster and a kind human being, is the one who can take this show into the future.”

Mr. Seacrest, 42, speaking on a separate call, heaped similar praise on Ms. Ripa. “She is so smooth and seamless and wonderfully clever and quick — she’s part of people’s lives, in their living rooms — and I want to come in as a friend of hers and as a friend to the audience,” he said.

Pearl Jam, Journey, Yes Score Epic Night at Rock Hall of Fame – Rolling Stone

The 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony featured Steve Perry’s first onstage appearance with Journey in 26 years (even though he didn’t actually sing), a Yes reunion with Rush’s Geddy Lee on bass, a moving tribute to Tupac Shakur and the first performance of Pearl Jam’s original lineup since early 1991. But it was David Letterman, a last-minute replacement for Neil Young and the only non-musician of the evening to speak, that summed up the feeling of the event best. “When I came here for rehearsals, I was reminded what a gift live music is,” he said while inducting Pearl Jam. “Never take live music for granted.”

Who Can We Trust on The Walking Dead Right Now? | Vanity Fair

Going into the Season 7 finale, quite a few characters deserve our suspicion.

Negan’s former right-hand man declared last week that he wanted to switch sides and team up with Rick and his former torture victim, Daryl. (Predictably, Daryl wasn’t crazy about that idea.) But is Dwight telling the truth, or trying to pull the wool over Team Family’s eyes?
