Sinclair Broadcast Group partners with Bally's
The broadcasts, formerly carried under the Fox Sports banner, will carry casino operator's names. MLB becomes increasingly enmeshed with gambling.
Last week, Josh Kosman of the New York Post reported that Sinclair Broadcast Group will rebrand its 21 sports networks after Bally Sports. Bally’s Corp is a casino operator with 11 casino and racetrack properties in a handful of states. Sinclair will receive $85 million over 10 years from Bally’s. The networks were previously Fox Sports channels.
