Liabilities").

     (ii) Buyer shall not assume or be liable for (1) any liability or
obligation arising out of the management, operation or sales or other
obligations in connection with any LMA Station or any JSA Station, or any of the
Station Assets or the License Assets prior to the Closing Date (except for the
Assumed Liabilities); (2) any liability or obligation under any contracts not
(except for Assumed Liabilities) expressly assumed by Buyer hereunder (subject

relating to the Station Assets with respect to events or circumstances that

liability of Seller to Buyer is limited in the manner described in Section 9.4
hereof and shall be paid solely through the mechanism of the off-set against the
Option Exercise Price as more specifically described in Section 9.4 hereof.  All
liabilities and obligations arising out of the Station Assets that do not
constitute Assumed Liabilities shall be retained by Seller and are referred to
herein as "Retained Liabilities".

To the extent, if any, Seller makes a payment to Buyer as a result of any
proration or adjustment pursuant to Section 2.2 hereof, Buyer shall then assume
and shall be obligated to pay such obligations and liabilities for which such
proration or adjustment was made pursuant to Section 2.2.

     (c)     Consents to Contracts.  (i) If any required approval of or consent
to the transfer and assignment to Buyer of any contract or equity interest
included in the Station Assets is not obtained on or before the Closing Date,
obtaining such consent shall not constitute a condition precedent to Buyer's
obligations to close hereunder.  Unless Buyer otherwise requests of Seller, all
such contracts shall be assigned on the Closing Date.  If Buyer requests, Seller
shall retain such contracts in respect of which consents have not been obtained
(the "Consent Contracts") until the earlier of (1) the expiration thereof
(without any extension thereunder) and (2) the final Option Closing Date (as
defined in the Option Agreement), or to the extent any such Consent Contract
does not relate to the Stations, Seller shall retain such Consent Contract until
the Columbus Option Closing Date.  Buyer agrees that on such date, Seller will
assign to Buyer, and Buyer will assume from Seller, such Consent Contracts that
have not yet been transferred to Buyer regardless of whether consent has been
obtained in connection therewith, all without any liability or obligation of
Seller.  Between the Closing Date and the date on which such Consent Contract is
assumed as set forth above in this paragraph, Seller shall use its commercially
reasonable efforts to obtain all required consents (which, except as provided in
clause (c)(ii) below shall not require the expenditure by Seller of any
expenses, except for ministerial processing fees in connection with assignment
of such contracts as set forth in such contracts and Seller's out-of-pocket
expenses to its attorney or other agents incurred in connection with obtaining
such consents).  To the extent Seller is unable to obtain such consents, Seller
shall retain such Consent Contract, and Buyer shall, by making payments to
Seller (which Seller shall then pay to the contracting party under such Consent
Contract), pay, satisfy, perform and discharge Seller's liabilities and
obligations in connection with the Consent Contracts which are related to the
period on or after the Closing Date, and Buyer shall indemnify and hold Seller
harmless with respect to any other liabilities which arise with respect to the
Consent Contracts which are related to the period on or after the Closing Date,
including, without limitation, liabilities that arise due to the assignment of
such Consent Contracts to Buyer or the retention by Seller of such Consent
Contracts and the use thereof by Buyer, without consent.  Such liabilities and
obligations in connection with the Consent Contracts shall also constitute
"Assumed Liabilities" for purposes of this Agreement. 

     (ii)     If as a condition to the grant of consents to the real property
leases set forth on Schedule 1.1(b), the party to such lease whose consent is
required requires any cash payment to be made or any changes under such lease
resulting in material increases in the economic terms thereunder (collectively
"Consent Costs"), Seller shall be responsible for the first $150,000 (with
respect to any such single lease) and $300,000 (with respect to all such leases
collectively) of Consent Costs.  Buyer shall be responsible for the next
$150,000 (with respect to any single lease) and $300,000 (with respect to such
leases collectively) of Consent Costs.  With respect to the Consent Costs in
excess of such amounts, Seller and Buyer will each bear one half.  The parties
agree to negotiate in good faith with respect to changes under leases that
result in material increases in the economic terms thereunder.  The parties
agree to promptly notify the other, and to maintain a record, with respect to
all Consent Costs requested, and paid by either party.  Nothing herein shall be
construed to limit Buyer's obligation to accept as a condition to the grant of
such consents the imposition of any reasonable non-economic changes under the
applicable contracts.


                                  ARTICLE 2

                              PURCHASE; CLOSING

     2.1     Purchase Price.  In consideration of Seller's performance of this
Agreement and the transfer and delivery of the Station Assets to Buyer at the
Closing, (a) Buyer will pay to Seller Nine Hundred Nine Million One Hundred
Fifty Three Thousand Seven Hundred Forty Dollars ($909,153,740) (the "Cash
Purchase Price"), plus or minus the amount of any adjustments made pursuant to
Section 2.2 below and (b) Buyer will issue to Seller the number of shares of
Series A Exchangeable Preferred Stock of Buyer, par value $.01 per share, having
an aggregate Agreed Value (as defined in the Articles Supplementary referred to
below) as of the Closing Date of One Hundred Fifteen Million Dollars
($115,000,000) (the "Exchangeable Preferred Stock"), which shares shall be
exchangeable after the Closing, on the terms and conditions set forth herein,
into an equivalent number of shares of Buyer's Series B Convertible Preferred
Stock, par value $.01 per share (the "Convertible Preferred Stock"), having an
aggregate Agreed Value (as defined in the Amended Charter referred to below) of
$115,000,000 (the "Stock Purchase Price," and together with the Cash Purchase
Price, collectively, the "Purchase Price"). 

The Convertible Preferred Stock shall be issued by Buyer in exchange for the
Exchangeable Preferred Stock immediately after the filing by Buyer with the
Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation, as contemplated by Section 10.4
hereof, of an amendment and restatement of Buyer's charter, which shall be in
the form of the Amended Charter (as defined below).  The shares of Convertible
Preferred Stock to be issued by Buyer in exchange for the Exchangeable Preferred
Stock hereunder shall be convertible, in the aggregate, into Four Million One
Hundred Eighty-One Thousand Eight Hundred Eighteen (4,181,818) shares of Buyer's
Class A Common Stock, par value $.01 per share ("Buyer Common Stock"), subject
to adjustment upon any split, reorganization, recapitalization, combination or
dividend and certain other events affecting the Common Stock of Buyer prior to
the Closing as described in Schedule 2.1(a) (the "Anti-Dilution Adjustments")
and subject to such other adjustments from and after the Closing as may be set
forth in the Articles Supplementary. 

The Exchangeable Preferred Stock shall have the designations, preferences and
relative participating, optional and other special rights and qualifications,
limitations and restrictions as set forth in the Articles Supplementary to
Buyer's existing charter, which shall be in the form of the Articles
Supplementary attached as Exhibit 2.1(b) hereof (the "Articles Supplementary").

The Convertible Preferred Stock shall have the designations, preferences and
relative participating, optional and other special rights and qualifications,
limitations and restrictions as set forth in the Articles Supplementary. 

At the Closing, Buyer will assume the Assumed Liabilities. The Cash Purchase
Price shall be paid by Buyer to Seller on the Closing Date, except as otherwise
provided in the following paragraph, by wire transfer of immediately available
federal funds in United States dollars to such bank accounts as are designated
by Seller on or prior to the Closing Date.

In the event that the Buyer elects to extend the Termination Date for Extended
Periods (as defined herein) pursuant to Section 2.3(d) hereof, the Cash Purchase
Price shall be increased by Ten Million Dollars ($10,000,000) for each such
Litigation Extended Period and Five Million Dollars ($5,000,000) for the Cure
Extended Period, and Buyer shall be required to pay to Seller such additional
Cash Purchase Price, in increments of Ten Million Dollars ($10,000,000), on the
first day of each such Litigation Extended Period and Five Million Dollars
($5,000,000) on the first day of the Cure Extended Period, by wire transfer of
immediately available federal funds in United States dollars to such accounts as
are designated by Seller; provided that to the extent the final Extended Period
is to be for less than 30 (in the case of a Litigation Extended Period) or 15
(in the case of the Cure Extended Period) days, as provided for in Section
2.3(d) below, such $10,000,000 or $5,000,000, as applicable, amount payable with
respect to such Extended Period shall be reduced by an amount equal to the
product of (a) a fraction whose numerator is equal to the difference between 30
(in the case of a Litigation Extended Period) or 15 (in the case of a Cure
Extended Period) and the number of days in such final Extended Period, and whose
denominator is 30 (in the case of a Litigation Extended Period) or 15 (in the
case of the Cure Extended Period), multiplied by (b) $10,000,000 (in the case of
a Litigation Extended Period) and $5,000,000 (in the case of a Cure Extended
Period).  Such payments to extend the Termination Date shall be retained by
Seller irrespective of whether Closing occurs hereunder and shall be
non-refundable to Buyer except to the extent expressly set forth in Section
10.2(c).  To the extent that the Closing occurs on a Closing Date prior to the
expiration of a then current Extended Period, the Purchase Price shall be
subject to further adjustment as provided in Section 2.2(a)(vii) hereof.

     2.2     Adjustments.

     (a)     (i)     Operations.  The items set forth in this Section 2.2(a)
relating to the operation of the Owned Stations and the Columbus Station, and to
the management, operations, sales or other obligations, as applicable, in
connection with the LMA Stations and the JSA Stations, and the income, expenses
and liabilities attributable thereto through 11:59 p.m. on the day preceding the
Closing Date (the "Adjustment Date") shall be for the account of Seller and,
thereafter, for the account of Buyer, and shall be prorated accordingly.  Items
including, but not limited to, power and utilities charges, ad valorem property
taxes upon the basis of the most recent assessment available, business and
license fees, charges for utilities, water/sewer and natural gas, time sales
agreements, property and equipment rentals, commissions, wages, payroll taxes,
accrued vacation pay of employees of Seller who are hired by Buyer(all such
vacation pay accrued prior to the Closing Date to be the responsibility of
Seller), and rents and similar prepaid and deferred items, shall be prorated
between Seller and Buyer, the proration to be made as of the Adjustment Date.
There shall be no prorations and/or adjustments with respect to any sick leave
and personal days accrued on or prior to the Closing Date by any employees of
Seller, and the Buyer shall assume and be responsible for all liabilities in
respect thereof.  All special assessments and similar charges or liens imposed
against the Real Property, Leasehold Interests or Real Property Improvements in
respect of any period of time through the Adjustment Date, whether payable in
installments or otherwise, shall be the responsibility of Seller, and amounts
payable with respect to such special assessments, charges or liens in respect of
any period of time after the Adjustment Date shall be the responsibility of
Buyer and shall be adjusted as required hereunder.

     (ii)     Trades.  All trade, barter or similar arrangements for the sale of
advertising time other than for cash (with the exception of film or program
barter agreements and media barter agreements) ("Trades") shall be prorated
between Buyer and Seller as of the Adjustment Date.  If, on the Closing Date,
the aggregate value of the performance obligations of the Stations on or after
the Closing Date under all such Trades, less the aggregate value of the goods,
services or other items to be received thereunder on or after the Closing Date,
exceeds (1) $50,000 for any Station, or (2) $250,000 in the aggregate for all
Stations, then Buyer shall receive a credit against the Cash Purchase Price for
the amount of such excess.  If on the Closing Date, the aggregate value of the
goods, services or other items to be received on or after the Closing Date less
the aggregate value of the performance obligation of the Stations on or after
the Closing Date exceeds (1) $50,000 for any Station, or (2) $250,000 in the
aggregate for all Stations, then the Cash Purchase Price shall be increased by
the amount of such excess.  Trades shall be valued in accordance with the
valuation method currently used by Seller, which for purposes of the preceding
sentence, means that the liability for performance obligations shall be valued
according to the applicable Station's prevailing rates as of the Closing Date,
and goods, services or other items being received shall be valued based on the
fair market value of such goods, services or other items on the Closing Date.
There shall be no other proration or adjustment with respect to Trades, and
there shall be no proration or adjustment with respect to any film or program
barter agreements, media barter agreements or program contracts all of which
(except for the Add Back Programming Liabilities) shall be assumed by Buyer as
part of the Assumed Liabilities.

     (iii)     Station Options and Other Acquisitions and Transactions.  To the
extent that prior to the Closing Date (1) any Station Option is consummated, or
(2) Seller acquires any other television or radio station or has entered into or
enters into any other transaction contemplated in Schedule 2.2(a)(1), the Cash
Purchase Price shall be increased by (A) the non-recurring out-of-pocket costs
incurred by Seller with respect to the consummation of the Station Options and
(B) the corresponding amount relating to such other television or radio station
as set forth in Schedule 2.2(a)(1), or if not listed therein, as may be agreed
to by the parties hereto, plus the non-recurring out-of-pocket costs incurred by
Seller with respect to the consummation of such other acquisition or
transaction.  To the extent that Seller has not consummated the acquisitions
contemplated on Schedule 2.2(a)(1) but has made any deposits in respect thereof,
the Cash Purchase Price shall be increased by the amount of each such deposit.
To the extent that the Station Options have not been consummated on or before
the Closing Date, the Cash Purchase Price shall be decreased in the amount of
the Option Price, as adjusted, as set forth in Section 1(c) of the Option
Agreement listed on Schedule 1.1(c)(3), as amended, in connection with the
assumption of the Station Options by Buyer hereunder.

     (iv)     Rich JSA.  To the extent that, as of the Closing Date, WWWS(AM)
and WGR(AM), Buffalo, New York have not yet been sold by Rich Communications
Corporation ("Rich") and Seller has not received the amount that would otherwise
be payable by Rich to Seller under Section 13 of the Joint Sales Agreement with
Rich listed on Schedule 1.1(c)(2) hereof if such stations had been sold by such
date, the Cash Purchase Price shall be increased by such amount.

     (v)     Other. The Cash Purchase Price shall be adjusted in accordance with
Schedule 2.2(a)(v).

     (vi)     Bock Note.  The Cash Purchase Price shall be increased by
$34,376.90 in connection with the assignment of the Promissory Note dated
September 13, 1995 in favor of Seller made by Eric J. Bock, Guy W. Bock and
Susan Bock-Dean, which is being endorsed (without recourse to Seller) to Buyer
hereunder.

     (vii)     Payment for Extended Period.  The Cash Purchase Price shall be
decreased by the amount equal to the product of (A) a fraction whose numerator
is equal to the difference between 30 (in the case of a Litigation Extended
Period) or 15 (in the case of a Cure Extended Period) and the number of days
elapsed in the then-current Extended Period as of the Closing Date, if any, and
whose denominator is equal to 30 (in the case of a Litigation Extended Period)
or 15 (in the case of a Cure Extended Period), multiplied by (B) $10,000,000 (in
the case of a Litigation Extended Period) and $5,000,000 (in the case of a Cure
Extended Period); provided that where an Extended Period is less than 30 (in the
case of a Litigation Extended Period) or 15 (in the case of a Cure Extended
Period) days, a corresponding adjustment shall be made based upon the number of
days remaining in such Extended Period, the original number of days in such
Extended Period and the additional Cash Purchase Price payment made in respect
of such Extended Period under Section 2.1.

     (viii)     Alliance.  The Cash Purchase Price shall be increased by
Twenty-Five Thousand Nine Hundred Sixty-Five Dollars and Seventy Cents
($25,965.70) as reimbursement for Seller's investment in Television Alliance
Group, Inc.

     (ix)     New Mexico Stations.  To the extent Seller has sold the New Mexico
Stations or the RCB Twin Peaks Equity Interest prior to the Closing Date, the
Cash Purchase Price for all of the Stations shall be reduced by the amount paid
to Seller in connection therewith, minus (1) the non-recurring out-of-pocket
costs incurred by Seller in respect of consummation of such sale, (2) the total
amount of all federal, state and local taxes (other than income taxes) incurred
in connection with such sale and (3) the total amount of all federal, state and
local income taxes incurred by Sandia in connection with such sale.  In
connection with any such sale, Seller shall provide a certificate to Buyer as to
the amount of the adjustment hereunder together with appropriate documentation
supporting Seller's calculations.

     (b)     (i)  Prorations Certificate.  For the purpose of determining the
prorations and adjustments required pursuant to Section 2.2(a), Seller shall
deliver to Buyer, not less than five (5) days prior to the Closing Date, a
certificate (the "Prorations Certificate"), to be signed at Closing by an
appropriate official of Seller after due inquiry by such official, but without
any personal liability to any such official, which specifies Seller's good faith
determination of the dollar amount of the prorations and adjustments under
Section 2.2(a), including, without limitation, appropriate documentation
supporting Seller's determinations and calculations under Section 2.2(a).

     (ii)     Pre-Closing Dispute; Escrow.  If Buyer, acting in good faith, does
not agree with any amount set forth in the Prorations Certificate, then on or
prior to the second business day prior to the Closing Date, Buyer may deliver to
Seller a written report (the "Buyer's Estimate Report") setting forth in
reasonable detail Buyer's good faith reasonable estimate(s) of the amount(s)
with which Buyer disagrees.  Any estimated amount which is set forth in the
Prorations Certificate and as to which Buyer does not deliver its own estimate
on or prior to such second business day will be the "estimated amount" of the
prorations and adjustments under Section 2.2(a) (the "Adjustment Amount") on the
Closing Date.  In the case of any such estimated amount as to which Buyer
delivers its own estimate, Seller and Buyer will endeavor in good faith to agree
prior to the Closing on the appropriate amount of such estimate, and any amount
so agreed upon by them in writing prior to the Closing will be the "estimated
amount" of the Adjustment Amount on the Closing Date.  In the case of any such
estimated amount as to which Buyer delivers its own estimate and Seller and
Buyer do not so agree, the estimate set forth in the Prorations Certificate will
be the "estimated amount" of the Adjustment Amount, on the Closing Date, and at
the Closing the difference (if any) between the amount of the Cash Purchase
Price that would be determined using the amount set forth in the Prorations
Certificate and the amount of the Cash Purchase Price determined using the
estimated Adjustment Amount set forth in the Buyer's Estimate Report (such
amount, the "Post-Closing Estimate Fund Deposit") will be transferred by Buyer
to Magna Trust Company, St. Louis, Missouri or such other bank as mutually
agreed to by the parties (the "Prorations Escrow Agent"), to be held by the
Prorations Escrow Agent, pursuant to the Post-Closing Escrow Agreement
substantially in the form of Exhibit 2.2(b) (with such changes as the Prorations
Escrow Agent may request), and pending final determination of the disputed
amount(s) in question pursuant to this Section 2.2(b) as set forth below, as a
fund in escrow (the "Post-Closing Estimate Fund") to provide security for the
payment of any additional amount which may be payable by Buyer pursuant to
Section 2.1.

     (iii)     Adjustment at Closing.  At Closing, the Cash Purchase Price shall
be decreased to the extent Seller owes Buyer funds or increased to the extent
Buyer owes Seller funds, based upon the amount set forth in the Prorations
Certificate.

     (iv)     Closing Balance Sheet.  Within one hundred and twenty (120) days
after the Closing Date, Buyer shall prepare a closing balance sheet (the
"Closing Balance Sheet") as of the close of business on the Adjustment Date and
submit it to Seller for review.  To the extent Seller does not agree with any
amount set forth in the Closing Balance Sheet, Seller shall deliver written
notice of such disagreement to Buyer.  Within one hundred and fifty (150) days
after the Closing Date, final adjustments pursuant to Section 2.2 shall be
determined, and any required refund or payment shall be made in accordance with
subsection (vi) below on the basis of the Closing Balance Sheet, subject to the
provisions relating to disputes provided for herein.  Upon acceptance, payment
hereunder will be remitted within five (5) days thereafter.  If any dispute
arises over the amount to be refunded or paid, such refund or payment shall
nonetheless be made to the extent such amount is not in dispute.

     (v)     Post-Closing Dispute.  If any dispute cannot be resolved by Buyer
and Seller or their respective independent public accountants within one hundred
and eighty (180) days after the Closing Date, the disputed matters shall be
referred to a mutually satisfactory independent public accounting firm of
national stature which has not been employed by any party hereto for the two (2)
years preceding the date of such referral; such firm to be selected by the
independent public accountants of Seller and Buyer.  The determination of such
firm shall be conclusive and binding on each party and not subject to dispute or
review.  One-half of the fees of such firm shall be paid by Seller, and one-half
shall be paid by Buyer.

     (vi)     Disbursement of Post-Closing Estimate Fund.  If any funds are
transferred to the Prorations Escrow Agent to be held in the Post-Closing
Estimate Fund, then any amount which becomes payable to Buyer or Seller pursuant
to Section 2.2(b), together with interest accrued on such amount, will be paid
to Buyer or Seller from the Post-Closing Estimate Fund, to the extent of the
funds therein.  If no funds are transferred to the Prorations Escrow Agent to be
held in the Post-Closing Estimate Fund or the entire amount so transferred has
theretofore been paid pursuant to this paragraph of Section 2.2(b), then any
remaining amount payable to Seller pursuant to Section 2.2(b) will be paid by
Buyer and any remaining amount payable to Buyer pursuant to Section 2.2(b) will
be paid by Seller.  Any amount payable by Seller or Buyer pursuant to Section
2.2(b) (other than to the extent that funds are available from the Post-Closing
Estimate Escrow to pay such amount) will bear interest at the prime or reference
rate of interest announced by Chemical Bank as in effect from time to time, from
the third business day after the adjusted Cash Purchase Price is determined in
accordance with Section 2.2(b) through and including the date upon which such
amount and all such interest are paid in full.

     2.3     (a)  The Closing.  The closing of the transactions provided for in
this Agreement (the "Closing") shall be held in the offices of Dow, Lohnes &
Albertson, 1200 New Hampshire Avenue, N.W., Suite 800, Washington, D.C. 20036 or
such other mutually agreeable location at 10:00 a.m. on a date (the "Closing
Date") as shall be mutually agreed upon by Buyer and Seller which, subject to
the other provisions of this Section 2.3, shall not be later than the date (the
"Originally Scheduled Termination Date" and such date, as the same may be
extended pursuant to, and subject to, the provisions of this Section 2.3, the
"Termination Date") that is sixty (60) days after the date of this Agreement
(unless such sixtieth day is not a business day in Maryland, in which case on
the first business day thereafter) and, failing mutual agreement of the parties,
the Closing Date shall be on such sixtieth day (or, if not a business day in
Maryland, on the first business day thereafter); provided, however, that to the
extent Seller is not able to deliver any item set forth in Section 2.4(a) by
such sixtieth day, the Closing Date may be extended at Buyer's option without
payment of any additional consideration by Buyer, for up to an additional
fifteen (15) day period.

     (b)     Notwithstanding the foregoing, if on the Originally Scheduled
Termination Date the condition precedent set forth in Sections 7.4 or 8.6 hereof
has not been satisfied, either Buyer or Seller may elect to postpone the
Originally Scheduled Termination Date for up to an additional thirty (30) days
plus the number of days during the period from the date of this Agreement
through the earlier of (1) the date on which Sections 7.4 and 8.6 hereof have
been satisfied and (2) the Closing Date, during which the Federal Trade
Commission or the Department of Justice closes due to an unscheduled shutdown
(not including weekends or scheduled holidays) (together, the "Additional
Period" and the number of days in such period being referred to herein as the
"Additional Days"), and the Closing shall thereafter take place on a date
specified by written notice from such party, which date shall be not less than
five (5) days nor more than fifteen (15) days after the satisfaction of such
condition precedent, but in no event later than the date which occurs a number
of days after the Originally Scheduled Termination that is equal to the number
of Additional Days.

     (c)     If at the end of such Additional Period, either condition precedent
set forth in Section 7.4 or Section 8.6 has not been satisfied, either Buyer or
Seller may terminate this Agreement and the provisions of Section 10.2 shall be
applicable.

     (d)     To the extent that, as of the Originally Scheduled Termination Date
(or, if applicable, as extended pursuant to Section 2.3(b) hereof), (1) any
injunction of a court or other governmental authority restrains or enjoins the
consummation of the transactions contemplated hereby, or any proceeding of the
sort falling within the provisions of Section 8.2 is pending, Buyer shall
provide copies of the documentation relating thereto to Seller and Buyer may
extend such Termination Date for additional thirty (30) day periods (or to the
extent extended on or after December 2, 1996 for the lesser period to and
including December 31, 1996) (each a "Litigation Extended Period") to and
including December 31, 1996 or (2) Buyer has received notice from Seller as
specified in the proviso in Section 10.1(a)(ii), Buyer may extend such
Termination Date for an additional fifteen (15) day period (or to the extent
extended on or after December 17, 1996 for the lesser period to and including
December 31, 1996) (the "Cure Extended Period") and together with a Litigation
Extended Period, sometimes hereafter referred to collectively as the "Extended
Periods", as applicable and individually as an "Extended Period").  The right to
extend the Termination Date pursuant to the preceding sentence shall only be
available to Buyer to the extent Buyer delivers to Seller written notice (an
"Extension Notice") on or prior to such Termination Date or any then current
Extended Period, of Buyer's intent to extend the Termination Date and Buyer
makes the payments referred to in Section 2.1 with respect to extension of the
Termination Dates on the dates specified therein.  During such Extended Period,
Buyer may deliver written notice to Seller specifying that the Closing shall
take place on a specified date, within the applicable Extended Period, which
date shall not be less than five (5) business days from receipt of such notice
by Seller. 

     (e)     Notwithstanding anything to the contrary set forth in Articles 7, 8
or 10, or otherwise herein, Buyer agrees that, if the Termination Date has been
extended by Buyer pursuant to  Section 2.3(d), then

     (1)     Sections 8.2, 8.4, 8.6 and 8.10 shall be deemed to have been
satisfied as of the date Buyer elects to extend the Termination Date and shall
thereafter no longer constitute conditions precedent to Buyer's obligation to
close hereunder;

     (2)     On the Originally Scheduled Termination Date (or, if applicable, as
extended pursuant to Section 2.3(b) hereof), determination shall be made as to
the satisfaction of the condition set forth in Section 8.1(a) (and, if such
condition is satisfied, the general partner of Seller shall deliver to Buyer a
certificate of the general partner of Seller certifying to the fulfillment of
such condition) and if such condition is satisfied as of such date and such
certificate is delivered, Section 8.1(a) (and the delivery of the certificate
applicable thereto referred to in Section 8.1(c)) shall no longer constitute
conditions precedent to Buyer's obligation to close hereunder and any
determination of Seller's compliance with such representations and warranties
for purposes of indemnification hereunder or under the Option Agreement for
purposes of indemnification thereunder shall be made only as of the Originally
Scheduled Termination Date (or, if applicable, as extended pursuant to Section
2.3(b) hereof);

     (3)     No changes in the representations and warranties of Seller set
forth herein that are attributable to the period after the Originally Scheduled
Termination Date (or, if applicable, as extended pursuant to Section 2.3(b)
hereof), shall be taken into account for purposes of determining whether the
changes in the representations and warranties of Seller set forth herein would
cause a Material Adverse Change pursuant to Section 7.7.

     (4)     Satisfaction of the conditions precedent set forth in Sections
8.1(b) (and the delivery of the certificate applicable thereto referred to in
Section 8.1(c)), and delivery of documents to be delivered at Closing under
Sections 8.5, 8.7, 8.8, 8.9 and 8.11, shall be determined as of the actual date
of Closing;

     (5)     Satisfaction of the condition precedent set forth in Section 8.3
shall be determined as of the actual date of Closing, except that such opinion
may be modified to take into account circumstances arising after the Originally
Scheduled Termination Date (or, if applicable, as extended pursuant to Section
2.3(b) hereof); and

     (6)     If the Buyer elects to extend the Termination Date, thereafter
until the Closing Date Seller covenants that it shall not negligently, grossly
negligently, or intentionally and wrongfully take, or omit to take, any action
that would cause Seller's representations and warranties hereunder or under the
Option Agreement to be breached; provided it is understood and agreed that this
covenant shall be treated, as are all other covenants of Seller, as a covenant
subject to Section 8.1(b).

     2.4     Deliveries at Closing.  All actions at the Closing shall be deemed
to occur simultaneously, and no document or payment shall be deemed to be
delivered or made until all documents and payments are delivered or made to the
reasonable satisfaction of Buyer, Seller, and each of their respective counsel;
provided, however, the execution and delivery of the Option Agreement and the
Time Brokerage Agreements, each more fully described below, will be deemed to
occur immediately after the Closing of this Agreement.

     (a)     Deliveries by Seller at Closing.  At the Closing, Seller shall
deliver to Buyer such instruments of conveyance and other customary

                    REPRESENTATIONS AND WARRANTIES OF SELLER

Seller represents and warrants to Buyer as follows:

     3.1     Formation.  Seller is a limited partnership duly formed, validly
existing and in good standing under the laws of the State of Delaware.  Seller
has the requisite partnership power and authority to carry on the business of
the Owned Stations now being conducted by it and to own and operate the Station
Assets owned and operated by it and is qualified to conduct the business of the
Owned Stations now being conducted by it in each jurisdiction listed in Schedule
3.1.

     3.2     Partnership Action.  All requisite partnership actions and
proceedings necessary to be taken by or on the part of Seller in connection with
the execution and delivery of this Agreement and the consummation of the
transactions contemplated hereby and necessary to make the same effective have
been duly and validly taken.  This Agreement has been duly and validly
authorized, executed and delivered by or on behalf of Seller and constitutes the
valid and binding agreement of Seller enforceable against Seller in accordance
with and subject to its terms, except as enforceability may be limited by laws
affecting the enforcement of creditors' rights or contractual obligations
generally and by the application of general principles of equity.

     3.3     Financials.  Seller has delivered to Buyer copies of (i) the
internally prepared unaudited consolidated balance sheet of Seller and its
subsidiaries as of December 31, 1995 and the related statement of operations for
the twelve-month period ended December 31, 1995 (the "1995 Internal Financial
Statements"); (ii) the internally prepared unaudited consolidated balance sheet
of Seller and its subsidiaries as of January 31, 1996 and February 29, 1996 and
the related consolidated statement of operations for the one-month and
two-month, respectively, period then ended (the "1996 Internal Financial
Statements"); and  and (ii) the audited balance sheets of Seller and its
subsidiaries as of December 31, 1993 and December 31, 1994 and related
statements of operations and cash flows, and partners' equity for Seller and its
subsidiaries for the years then ended (the "1993 and 1994 Year-End Financial
Statements").

Except as set forth on Schedule 3.27, the 1995 Internal Financial Statements and
the 1993 and 1994 Year-End Financial Statements are, and the 1995 Year-End
Audited Financial Statements (as defined below) and the Closing Financial
Statements (as defined below), each to be delivered to Buyer pursuant to Section
5.3(a) hereof will be, in all material respects, (a) in agreement with the books
and records regularly maintained by Seller with respect to Seller and its
subsidiaries and (b) prepared in accordance with generally accepted accounting
principles applied on a consistent basis in all material respects (except, to
the extent not applied on a consistent basis in all material respects, as noted
thereon) and except as set forth on Schedule 3.27, and except with respect to
the 1995 Internal Financial Statements and the Closing Financial Statements the
absence of notes thereto throughout the year or period involved, and the 1995
Internal Financial Statements and the 1993 and 1994 Year-End Audited Financial
Statements present, and the 1995 Year-End Financial Statements will present,
fairly in all material respects, the financial position of Seller and its
subsidiaries as at the respective dates of the balance sheet and the results of
the operations and the cash flow of Seller and its subsidiaries for the year and
period then ended (subject, in the case of unaudited statements to normal
year-end adjustments).

December 31, 1995 is sometimes referred to herein as the "Balance Sheet Date."

     3.4     Business Since the Balance Sheet Date.  From the Balance Sheet Date
to the date of this Agreement, there has been no Station Material Adverse Change
(as defined in Section 3.6), or Material Adverse Change and the business of
Seller has been conducted in the ordinary course of business and in the same
manner as it was before the Balance Sheet Date except to the extent that any
differing conduct would not cause a Station Material Adverse Change.

     3.5     Condition of Assets.  The material tangible assets included in the
Station Assets and the Leasehold Interests are being maintained in accordance
with general industry practices in good operating condition and repair, wear and
tear in ordinary usage, insured casualty and condemnation excepted.

     3.6     Title, Etc.  Seller owns the Real Property and Real Property
Improvements designated as owned by Seller and leases the Leasehold Interests
designated as leased by Seller set forth on Schedule 1.1(b) in connection with
the operation of the Stations and the JSA Stations.  Seller is not in default
under any of the material Leasehold Interests.  Except as set forth on Schedules
3.6 and 1.3, and except to the extent that any such noncompliance would not
cause a Station Material Adverse Change (as defined below), to Seller's actual
knowledge, the Real Property and the Leasehold Interests listed on Schedule
1.1(b) and their present uses comply in all material respects with all
applicable zoning laws and ordinances; and to Seller's actual knowledge, there
exists no written notice of any uncorrected material violations of housing,
building, safety or fire ordinances with respect to the Real Property, Real
Property Improvements, or the Leasehold Interests listed on Schedule 1.1(b)
except where such violation would not cause a material adverse change in the
financial condition or business of any TV Station individually or the Radio
Stations, taken as a whole (provided that the foregoing shall not include any
material adverse change attributable to (i) factors affecting the television or
radio industries generally, (ii) general national, regional or local economic or
financial conditions, (iii) governmental or legislative laws, rules or
regulations, (iv) any affiliation agreement or the lack thereof or the
non-transfer to Buyer thereof or (v) actions taken by Buyer or any Affiliate of
Buyer) (a "Station Material Adverse Change").  For purposes of this Agreement,
"Affiliate" means with respect to a party, any Person, directly or indirectly,
controlling or controlled by such party, or any Person under direct or indirect
common control with such party (as such terms are interpreted from time to time
pursuant to the Securities Act of 1933, as amended); "Person" means and includes
natural persons, corporations, limited partnerships, general partnerships, joint
stock companies, joint ventures, associations, companies, trusts, banks, trust
companies, land trusts, business trusts or other organizations, whether or not
legal entities, and governments and agencies and political subdivisions thereof;
and "actual knowledge" with respect to Seller means the conscious awareness of
facts of Seller's Station general managers and the officers of the general
partner of Seller, after reasonable inquiry by such Station general managers and
such officers with respect to the matters referred to herein as to which the
Seller is stating its knowledge.  Seller has not received any written notice
with respect to, and Seller has no actual knowledge of, any pending or
threatened condemnation proceeding affecting the Real Property or Leasehold
Interests listed on Schedule 1.1(b) or any part thereof or of any sale or other
disposition of the Real Property or Leasehold Interests or any portion thereof
in lieu of condemnation, that would cause a Station Material Adverse Change.
Except as set forth on Schedules 3.6 and 1.3, Seller has good, insurable and
marketable (only, with respect to insurability and marketability, as to tangible
property constituting Real Property) and indefeasible title to the tangible
assets included in the Station Assets owned by it, and all such assets will on
the Closing Date be free and clear of all security interests, mortgages,
pledges, liens, encumbrances, or charges of any nature whatsoever except for
Permitted Encumbrances.

     3.7     Trademarks, Etc.  Except as set forth on Schedules 1.1(f) and
1.1(g), Seller possesses adequate rights, licenses or other authority to use all
trademarks and trade names necessary to conduct the business of the Owned
Stations as presently conducted by Seller, including without limitation the
intellectual property described in Sections 1.1(f) and (g) hereof and the
respective Schedules thereto, except where the failure to so possess would not
cause a Station Material Adverse Change.  Except as set forth on Schedules
1.1(f) and 1.1(g) hereto, Seller has not received any notice with respect to any
alleged infringement or unlawful or improper use of any copyright, trademark,
trade name or other intangible property right owned by others and used in
connection with the Owned Stations.  Seller represents and warrants that, except
as set forth on Schedule 1.1(f) hereto, none of the trademarks listed thereon
has been registered.

     3.8     Insurance.  The Owned Stations and the Station Assets are, as of
the date of this Agreement, insured by Seller against loss or damage by fire and
other hazards and risks of the character usually insured against by persons
operating similar properties and businesses under policies issued by insurers of
recognized responsibility, as described on Schedule 3.8 hereof.

     3.9     Contracts.  Schedules 1.1(b), 1.1(c)(1),(2) and (3), 1.1(d),
1.1(e), 1.1(m) and 3.10 to this Agreement contain a complete list of the
following contracts as to which the Owned Stations or Seller with respect to the
Station Assets is a party or by which either of them is bound as of the date of
this Agreement, other than the Excluded Contracts:

     (a)     contracts evidencing time sales to advertisers or advertising
agencies that are "trade" or "barter" transactions that require the furnishing
of advertising time on any Owned Station or, to the extent Seller is a party
thereto, on any LMA Station or any JSA Station, at any time after the Closing
Date, and that individually involve annual payments of more than $250,000;

     (b)     sales agency or advertising representation contracts ending more
than one year after the date of this Agreement;

     (c)     employment contracts that individually involve annual base salaries
of more than $100,000;

     (d)     material licenses or agreements under which Seller is authorized to
broadcast on any Station filmed or taped programming supplied by others;

     (e)     leases of personal property which have a term, including renewal
options exercisable by any party thereto, ending more than one year after the
date of this Agreement and which involve annual payments of more than $50,000
individually or $250,000 in the aggregate;

     (f)     material contracts not made in the ordinary and usual course of
business;

     (g)     any other contracts which are material to the business and
operations of the Station Assets and involve annual payments of more than
$100,000 individually; and

     (h)     any television or radio network affiliation agreements.

Notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing, it is understood and
agreed that Seller is not required to list contracts entered into in the
ordinary course of business for the sale or sponsorship of advertising time on
any Station or JSA Station for cash at such Station's or JSA Station's
prevailing rate with not more than one year remaining in their terms.  All
information listed on Schedule 1.1(d) regarding the Program Contracts for TV
Stations is correct and accurate in all material respects including, without
limitation, the term of such contract and the amount of any unpaid payments due
thereunder as of December 31, 1995.

     3.10     Employees.  Seller has heretofore delivered to Buyer a list of all
its employees as of the date of this Agreement and their respective salaries and
dates of hire.  Except as noted on such list or on Schedule 3.10, Seller has no
written contracts of employment with any employee.  Except as described on
Schedule 3.10, Seller is not a party to or subject to any collective bargaining
agreements with respect to any Station nor, except as described on Schedule
3.10, does Seller have any other contracts with any labor union or other labor
organization with respect to any Station.  Except as set forth on Schedules 3.10
and 3.11, Seller is not a party to any pending or, to Seller's actual knowledge,
threatened labor dispute affecting any Station that would cause a Station
Material Adverse Change.

     3.11     Litigation.  Except as set forth on Schedule 3.11 hereto:  (i)
Seller, with respect to the Owned Stations, has not been operating under or
subject to or in default with respect to any order, writ, injunction or decree
of any court or federal, state, municipal or other governmental department,
commission, board, agency or instrumentality which has or could reasonably be
expected to cause a Station Material Adverse Change; (ii) Seller is not a party
to any litigation pending or, to Seller's actual knowledge, threatened
litigation affecting any of the Station Assets that would cause a Station
Material Adverse Change.  There creditors or voluntary or involuntary
proceedings in bankruptcy pending against or contemplated by Seller, and to
Seller's actual knowledge, no such actions have been threatened against Seller
or any Station or any subsidiary of Seller.  On the date hereof, except for
ongoing or planned FCC rulemakings affecting the television or radio industry
generally, there is no litigation or proceeding pending or, to Seller's actual
knowledge, threatened against or affecting Seller that would affect Seller's
ability to carry out the transactions contemplated by this Agreement or
restrain, enjoin, prohibit or render illegal the consummation of the
transactions contemplated by this Agreement.

     3.12     Compliance with Laws.  Seller, with respect to the Station Assets,
is to Seller's actual knowledge, in compliance, except where failure to so
comply would not cause a Station Material Adverse Change, with all applicable
laws, regulations and orders, and the present uses by Seller of the Station
Assets do not, to Seller's actual knowledge, violate any such laws, regulations
or orders, except to the extent that any such violation would not result in a
Station Material Adverse Change.

     3.13     No Conflicts.  Except as set forth on Schedule 3.13, on the
Closing Date, neither the execution and delivery by Seller of this Agreement,
nor the consummation by Seller of the transactions contemplated hereby would
constitute or, with the giving of notice or the passage of time or both, would
constitute a material violation of or would conflict in any material respect
with or result in any material breach of or any material default under, any of
the terms, conditions or provisions of any law or regulation to which Seller is
subject, or of the partnership agreement of Seller, or of any contract,
agreement or instrument that is required by the terms hereof to be listed on the
Schedules hereto to which Seller is a party or by which Seller is bound.

     3.14     Brokers.  Except for the fees payable to Communications Equity
Associates, Inc., which fees shall be paid by Seller, there is no broker or
finder or other person who would have any valid claim against any of the parties
to this Agreement for a commission or brokerage fee in connection with this
Agreement or the transactions contemplated hereby as a result of any agreement
or understanding of or action taken by Seller.

     3.15     Retransmission Consent Agreements.   Schedule 3.15 hereto
references a list of all material retransmission consent agreements entered into
by Seller with respect to any Station and in effect on the date hereof.

     3.16     Environmental.  To Seller's actual knowledge and except (a) as
stated in Schedule 3.16, (b) as may be revealed by any Phase I or Phase II
environmental audit performed or caused to be performed by Buyer or (c) where
such matters would not cause a Station Material Adverse Change, neither Seller
nor the Owned Stations, (nor the LMA Stations or the JSA Stations, but without
any inquiry with respect to the LMA Stations or the JSA Stations) are subject to
any (i) "Superfund" evaluation; or (ii) any investigation or proceeding of any
governmental authority evaluating whether any remedial action is necessary to
respond to release of any chemicals, materials, substances or wastes that are
now or hereafter become defined as, or included in the definition of, "hazardous
wastes," "hazardous substances," "extremely hazardous substances," "toxic
substances," "toxic" or "hazardous pollutants," "hazardous" or "toxic
materials," "contaminants," "pollutants," or words of similar import under the
Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1980, as amended, the Comprehensive
Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act of 1980, as amended, the
Hazardous Materials Transportation Act, as amended, the Clean Air Act, as
amended, the Clean Water Act, as amended, the Toxic Substances Control act, as
amended, the Safe Drinking Water Act, as amended, the Oil Pollution Act, as
amended, and their state or local counterparts or equivalents; or (iii) any
requirement to remove asbestos material or polychlorinated biphenyls based on
Seller's present use of the applicable property.  To Seller's actual knowledge
except as stated in Schedule 3.16, Seller has complied with all applicable
federal, state and local environmental laws and regulations, except where
failure to do so would not cause a Station Material Adverse Change.  Except (a)
as stated in Schedule 3.16, (b) as may be revealed by any Phase I or Phase II
environmental audit performed or caused to be performed by Buyer or (c) where
such matters would not cause a Station Material Adverse Change, to Seller's
actual knowledge, but without any independent environmental assessment (except
to the extent any environmental assessment may have previously been undertaken
by Seller), as of the Closing Date, the Real Property, the Leasehold Interests
and Real Property Improvements contain no condition or substance which under the
aforesaid environmental laws and regulations thereunder, as interpreted as of
this date by judicial and regulatory authorities, will result in recovery by any
person of material remedial or removal costs, expenses or damages, or
expenditures by Buyer for abatement or remedial actions.  Seller does not have
any reason as of the date of this Agreement to believe that an independent
environmental assessment would lead to the discovery of any such condition or
substance that would cause a Station Material Adverse Change.

     3.17     Employee Plans.  Copies of all employee benefit plans, all
employee welfare benefit plans, all employee pension benefit plans, all
multi-employer plans and all multi-employer welfare arrangements (as defined in
Sections (3), (1), (2), (37), and (40), respectively, of the Employee Retirement
Income Security Act of 1974, as amended ("ERISA"), which are currently
maintained and/or sponsored by Seller, or to which Seller currently contributes,
or has an obligation to contribute in the future, including, without limitation,
any agreements containing "golden parachute" provisions and deferred
compensation agreements), together with any trusts related thereto and a
classification of employees covered thereby (collectively, the "Plans") have
previously been delivered to Buyer, and all of the Plans are listed on Schedule
3.17.  Except to the extent listed on Schedule 3.17, no such Plan has been
terminated by Seller within the past three (3) years.

     3.18     Compliance with ERISA.  To the actual knowledge of Seller, except
as set forth on Schedule 3.18, neither Seller nor any Controlled Group Member
(as defined in the Internal Revenue Code of 1986, as amended (the "Code"),
Section 414(n)(6)(B)), has ever maintained or sponsored, or contributed to, an
employee pension benefit plan (as defined in ERISA Section 3(2)) which is
subject to the provisions of Title IV of ERISA.  All Plans are in substantial
compliance with all applicable provisions of ERISA and the regulations issued
thereunder, as well as with all other laws applicable to such Plans, and, in all
material respects, have been administered, operated and managed in substantial
accordance with the governing documents.  All Plans that are intended to qualify
(the "Qualified Plans") under Section 401(a) of the Code have been determined by
the Internal Revenue Service to be so qualified (except for any prototype plans
for which the Internal Revenue Service has issued a determination letter to the
creator of such plans), and copies of all current Plan determination letters,
most recent Form 5500, or, as applicable, Form 5500-C/R filed with respect to
each such qualified Plan or employee welfare benefit plan, and any attachments
to such forms have previously been delivered to Buyer by Seller.  Based on
estimates prepared by Plan actuaries, the amount of unfunded benefit liabilities
(within the meaning of ERISA Section 4001(a)(18)) determined as of January 1,
1996 for all Plans subject to Title IV of ERISA does not exceed $300,000.
Neither Seller nor any Plan has engaged in any transaction prohibited under the
provisions of Section 4975 of the Code or Section 406 of ERISA that could
reasonably be expected to result in any liability to Buyer.  Except as disclosed
in Schedule 3.18, no Plan has incurred an accumulated funding deficiency, as
defined in Section 412(a) of the Code and Section 302(l) of ERISA.  Further,
except to the extent provided in Schedule 3.18,

     (i)     there have been no terminations, partial terminations, or
discontinuance of contributions to any Qualified Plan without notice to and
approval by the Internal Revenue Service;

     (ii)     with respect to Plans which qualify as "Group Health Plans" under
Section 4980B of the Code and Section 607(1) of ERISA and related regulations
(relating to the benefit continuation rights imposed by "COBRA"), to the actual
knowledge of Seller, Buyer does not have (and will not incur as a result of this
transaction) any direct or indirect liability or is (or will be as a result of
this transaction) subject to any loss, assessment, excise tax, penalty, loss of
federal income tax deduction, or other sanction arising on account of or in
respect of any direct or indirect failure by Seller at any time prior to the
Closing Date to comply with any such federal or state benefit continuation
requirement, which is capable of being assessed or asserted before or after the
Closing Date directly or indirectly against Seller with respect to such Group
Health Plan;

     (iii)     a copy of the claims history of each Group Health Plan of Seller
for the past three (3) years has previously been provided to Buyer;

     (iv)     Seller has no retiree health care obligations to any of its
employees; and

     (v)     no severance pay will be due to any employee of Seller as a result

rights or contractual obligations generally and by the application of general
principles of equity.

     4.3     No Conflicts.  Neither the execution and delivery by Buyer of this
Agreement, nor the consummation by Buyer of the transactions contemplated

connection with legal proceedings relating to this Agreement and the
transactions contemplated hereby, or otherwise pursuant to subpoena or the
request of a governmental authority, and then only with prior notice to the

if applicable) this Agreement or any information (including, without limitation,
financial information and information regarding program contracts and revenue)

Agreement; provided, however, that the Buyer may disclose such information to
Buyer's officers, directors, employees, lenders, advisors, attorneys and

time of its disclosure to it; (b) becomes publicly known or available other than
as a result of disclosure by or through Buyer; (c) is rightfully received by
Buyer from a third party; or (d) is independently developed by Buyer.  In the

hereto shall not limit Seller's obligations with respect to the Consent
Contracts set forth in Sections 1.3 and 5.4 hereof, or Buyer's obligations with

waiver of any rights of Buyer or Seller with respect thereto.

contract.

is made by Buyer against Seller) by Buyer resulting from (i) any material breach
of any representation or warranty made by Seller pursuant to this Agreement;
(ii) any material failure by Seller to perform or fulfill any of its covenants
or agreements set forth in this Agreement; (iii) any failure by Seller to pay,
perform or discharge any liabilities or obligations not specifically assumed by
Buyer pursuant to this Agreement; or (iv) any litigation, proceeding or claim by
any third party arising from the business or operations of the Station Assets by
Seller prior to the Closing Date, except to the extent arising from obligations
or liabilities that have been disclosed to Buyer in this Agreement or the Option
Agreement in the Schedules hereto or thereto (other than those set forth on
Schedule 9.2) and except to the extent arising for obligations or liabilities of
or assumed by Buyer pursuant to this Agreement.

     9.3     Indemnification of Seller.  Buyer agrees that, after the Closing,
it shall indemnify and hold Seller and its officers, directors, partners,
employees, agents and Affiliates harmless from and against any and all Loss and
Expense suffered (whether any such claim arises out of a third party action or
is made by Seller against Buyer) by Seller resulting from (i) any material
breach of any representation or warranty made by Buyer pursuant to this
Agreement; (ii) any material failure by Buyer to perform or fulfill any of its
covenants or agreements set forth in this Agreement; (iii) any failure by Buyer
to pay, perform or discharge any Assumed Liabilities or any other obligations or
liabilities of or assumed by Buyer under this Agreement (including, without
limitation, those set forth in Section 10.3 hereof); or (iv) any litigation,
proceeding, or claim arising from the business or operations of the Station
Assets on or after the Closing Date.

     9.4     Limitation of Liability.  (i) Notwithstanding any other provision
of this Agreement, after the Closing, neither Seller nor Buyer shall indemnify
or otherwise be liable to the other unless (a) the party seeking indemnification
has complied with the terms of, including the time limits set forth in, Section
9.6 and (b) the aggregate amount of Buyer's Loss and Expense (in the case of
Seller's indemnification of Buyer) or Seller's Loss and Expense (in the case of
Buyer's indemnification of Seller) exceeds $500,000, in which event the
indemnified party shall be entitled to recover its aggregate Loss and Expense
inclusive of such $500,000 threshold; provided that such limitation shall not
apply to any indemnification obligation of Buyer pursuant to Section 9.3(ii),
(iii) or (iv) hereof or Seller pursuant to 9.2(ii), (iii) or (iv) hereof.
Notwithstanding any provision contained herein, in no event shall Seller be
liable for any amount, which, when combined with any other amounts for which
Seller previously has been liable under Section 9.2 hereof and any amount for
which Seller and Licensee are liable, or previously have been liable, under
Section 9.2 of the Option Agreement is in excess of $50,000,000.

     (ii)     Notwithstanding anything in this Agreement to the contrary, it is
understood and agreed that any amounts owed to Buyer by Seller for such Loss and
Expense as determined in accordance with this Article 9 shall be made solely and
exclusively in the form of a deduction from the Columbus Option Closing Price
(as defined in the Option Agreement) that has not yet been paid to Seller and
Licensee under the Option Agreement and that once the Columbus Option Closing
Price has been paid in full to Seller and Licensee or a portion thereof placed
in the Indemnification Fund (as defined in and pursuant to the terms of the
Option Agreement) or if the Columbus Option is terminated under the Option
Agreement, Buyer shall have no further recourse against Seller or Licensee, and
no other payment by Seller shall be required, hereunder, except for any then
pending claims against the amount of the Columbus Option Closing Price placed in
the Indemnification Fund.

     (iii)     Anything in this Agreement or any applicable law to the contrary
notwithstanding, neither Seller (except to the extent expressly provided for in
Section 9.4(ii)) nor any partner, director, officer, employee, agent or
Affiliate of Seller (including any shareholder, director, officer, employee,
agent or Affiliate of the general partner of the Seller) shall have any personal
liability to Buyer as a result of the breach of any representation, warranty,
covenant or agreement of Seller contained herein or otherwise and shall have no
personal obligation to indemnify Buyer for any of Buyer's Losses or Expenses.

     9.5     Bulk Sales Indemnity.  Buyer hereby waives compliance with the
provisions of any applicable bulk transfer laws.  Subject to the limitations set
forth in Section 9.4 above, Seller further agrees to indemnify and hold Buyer
harmless from and indemnify Buyer against any and all Loss and Expense relating
to any claims made by creditors, with respect to non-compliance with any bulk
transfer law, except to the extent that such claims result from the Assumed
Liabilities and other obligations or liabilities to be paid or discharged by
Buyer as a result of this Agreement and/or Buyer's failure to pay the same when
due.

     9.6     Notice of Claims.  If Buyer or Seller believes that it has suffered
or incurred any Loss and Expense, such party shall notify the other promptly in
writing and, in any event, within one year of the date of this Agreement,
describing such Loss and Expense, the factual basis for such claim, the amount
thereof, estimated in good faith, and the method of computation of such Loss and
Expense, all with reasonable particularity and containing a reference to the
provisions of this Agreement in respect of which such Loss and Expense shall
have occurred.  If any action at law or suit in equity is instituted by a third
party with respect to which any of the parties intends to claim any liability or
expense as Loss and Expense under this Article 9, such party shall within twenty
(20) days after receiving written notice thereof (or sooner to the extent the
indemnifying party would not have time to adequately take the actions
contemplated under Section 9.7), notify the indemnifying party of such action or
suit.

     9.7     Defense of Third Party Claims.  The indemnifying party under this
Article 9 shall have the right to conduct and control through counsel of its own
choosing the defense of any third party claim, action or suit (and the
indemnified party shall cooperate fully with the indemnifying party), but the
indemnified party may, at its election, participate in the defense of any such
claim, action or suit at its sole cost and expense provided that, if the
indemnifying party shall fail to defend any such claim, action or suit, then the
indemnified party may defend through counsel of its own choosing such claim,
action or suit, and (so long as it gives the indemnifying party at least fifteen
(15) days' notice of the terms of the proposed settlement thereof and permits
the indemnifying party to then undertake the defense thereof) settle such claim,
action or suit, and to recover from the indemnifying party the amount of such
settlement or of any judgment and the costs and expenses of such defense.  The
indemnifying party shall not compromise or settle any third party claim, action
or suit without the prior written consent of the indemnified party, which
consent will not be unreasonably withheld or delayed.

     9.8     Indemnity as Sole Remedy.  After the Closing Date, indemnification
pursuant to this Article 9 shall be the sole and exclusive remedy of any party
to this Agreement for any breach of a representation, warranty or covenant made
or obligation undertaken by any other party, or for any Loss or Expense arising
out of or relating to the items listed in Sections 9.2 and 9.3 or otherwise
related to the transactions contemplated hereby, other than in respect of the
Registration Rights Agreement, the Time Brokerage Agreements, the Option
Agreement, the Employment Agreement, the Consulting Agreement, the Baker Stock
Option Agreement, the Corporate Employee Stock Option Agreement, the Station
Employee Stock Option Agreement, the Employee Letter Agreement, the Voting
Agreement, the ISO Amendment, the LTIP, the Amended Charter or the Articles
Supplementary (collectively, the "Transaction Documents") which shall be
governed by their terms, whether such claim may be asserted as a breach of
contract, tort or otherwise. 

     9.9     Arbitration.  To the fullest extent not prohibited by law, any
controversy, claim or dispute arising out of or relating to Article 9 of this
Agreement, including the determination of the determination of the scope or
applicability of this Agreement to arbitrate, shall be settled by final and
binding arbitration in accordance with the rules then in effect of the American
Arbitration Association ("AAA"), as modified or supplemented under this section,
and subject to the Federal Arbitration Act, 9 U.S.C. Sections 1-16.  The
decision of the arbitrators shall be final and binding provided that, where a
remedy for breach is prescribed hereunder or limitations on remedies are
prescribed, the arbitrators shall be bound by such restrictions, and judgment
upon the award rendered by the arbitrators may be entered in any court having
jurisdiction thereof. 

If any series of claims arising out of the same or related transactions shall
involve claims which are arbitrable under the preceding paragraph and claims
which are not, the arbitrable claims shall first be finally determined before
suit may be instituted upon the others and the parties will take such action as
may be necessary to toll any statutes of limitations, or defenses based upon the
passage of time, that are applicable to such non-arbitrable claims during the
period in which the arbitrable claims are being determined.

In the event of any controversy, claim or dispute that is subject to arbitration
under this Section 9.9, any party thereto may commence arbitration hereunder by
delivering notice to the other party or parties thereto.  The arbitration panel
shall consist of three arbitrators, appointed in accordance with the procedures
set forth in this paragraph.  Within ten (10) business days of delivery of the
notice of commencement of arbitration referred to above, Seller, on the one
hand, and Buyer, on the other hand, shall each appoint one arbitrator, and the
two arbitrators so appointed shall within ten (10) business days of their
appointment mutually agree upon and appoint one additional arbitrator (or, if
such arbitrators cannot agree on an additional arbitrator, the additional
arbitrator shall be appointed by the AAA as provided under its rules); provided,
that persons eligible to be selected as arbitrators shall be limited to
attorneys at law who (i) are on the AAA's Large, Complex Case Panel, (ii) have
practiced law for at least 15 years as an attorney specializing in either
general commercial litigation or general corporate and commercial matters and
(iii) are experienced in matters involving the broadcasting industry.

The arbitration hearing shall commence no later than thirty (30) business days
after the completion of the selection of the arbitrators.  Consistent with the
intent of the parties hereto that the arbitration be conducted as expeditiously
as possible, the parties agree that (i) discovery shall be limited to the
production of such documents and the taking of such depositions as the
arbitrators determine are reasonably necessary to the resolution of the
controversy, claim or dispute and (ii) the arbitrators shall limit the
presentation of evidence by each side in such arbitration to not more than ten
(10) full days (or the equivalent thereof) or such shorter period as the
arbitrators shall determine to be necessary in order to resolve the controversy,
claim or dispute.  The arbitrators shall be instructed to render a decision
within ten (10) business days of the close of the arbitration hearing.  If
arbitration has not been completed within ninety (90) days of the commencement
of such arbitration, any party to the arbitration may initiate litigation upon
ten (10) days written notice to the other party(ies); provided, however, that if
one party has requested the other to participate in an arbitration and the other
has failed to participate, the requesting party may initiate litigation before
the expiration of such ninety-day period; and provided further, that if any
party to the arbitration fails to meet any of the time limits set forth in this
Section 9.9 or set by the arbitrators in the arbitration, any other party may
provide ten (10) days written notice of its intent to institute litigation with
respect to the controversy, claim or dispute without the need to continue or
complete the arbitration and without awaiting the expiration of such ninety-day
period.  The parties hereto further agree that if any of the rules of the AAA
are contrary to or conflict with any of the time periods provided for hereunder,
or with any other aspect of the matters set forth in this Section 9.9, that such
rules shall be modified in all respects necessary to accord with the provisions
of this Section 9.9 (and the arbitrators shall be so instructed by the parties).

The arbitrators shall base their decision on the terms of this Agreement and
applicable law and judicial precedent which a United States District Court
sitting in the District of Maryland (Southern Division) would apply in the event
the dispute were litigated in such court, and shall render their decision in
writing and include in such decision a statement of the findings of fact and
conclusions of law upon which the decision is based.  Each party agrees to
cooperate fully with the arbitrator(s) to resolve any controversy, claim or
dispute.  The arbitrators shall not be empowered to award punitive damages or
damages in excess of actual damages.  The venue for all arbitration proceedings
shall be Rockville, Maryland.


                                  ARTICLE
                          TERMINATION/MISCELLANEOUS

     10.1     Termination of Agreement.  This Agreement may be terminated at any
time on or prior to the Closing Date as follows:

     (a)     By Seller:

     (i)     if Buyer fails to comply with Section 6.4 hereof within ten (10)
business days after Seller notifies Buyer that Buyer has not complied with such
Section; provided that, in the case termination is based on Buyer's failure to
comply with Section 6.4, Seller shall have complied with Section 5.9; or

     (ii)     if any of the conditions provided in Article 7 have not been met
by the Termination Date and have not been waived, provided that Seller is not in
default or breach in any material respect of its representations and warranties,
covenants or agreements under this Agreement and that the failure to meet such
conditions is not due to Seller's breach of the Agreement; provided, however,
that if on such date the conditions specified in Section 7.1(a) and (b) hereof
have not been satisfied, Seller shall deliver written notice thereof to Buyer
and Buyer's senior lenders ("Buyer's Lenders") under its then existing senior
credit facility (the name and notice information regarding which Buyer shall
provide to Seller), and Seller shall not be entitled to terminate this Agreement
until (1) after it has delivered such notice; (2) after delivery of such notice,
if Buyer fails to make the payment required pursuant to Sections 2.1 and 2.3(d);
or (3) if the payment is made pursuant to Sections 2.1 and 2.3(d), if such
conditions have not been satisfied in full within fifteen (15) days following
receipt of such notice.

     (b)     By Buyer:

     (i)     if Seller fails to comply with Section 5.9 hereof within ten (10)
business days after Buyer notifies Seller that Seller has not complied with such
Section; provided that, in the case termination is based on Seller's failure to
comply with Section 5.9, Buyer shall have complied with Section 6.4; or

     (ii)     subject to the provisions of Section 2.3(e) hereof, if any
conditions provided in Article 8 have not been met by the Termination Date and
have not been waived, provided that Buyer is not in default or breach in any
material respect of its representations and warranties, covenants or agreements
under this Agreement and that the failure to meet such conditions is not due to
Buyer's breach of the Agreement; or

     (iii)     no later than thirty (30) business days after Seller has notified
Buyer pursuant to Section 8.4 of the occurrence of any damage or event as
described in Section 8.4.

     (c)     By Either Buyer or Seller as follows:

     (i)     by mutual written consent of Buyer and Seller.

No party hereto shall have any liability to any other for costs, expenses,
damages, loss of anticipated profits or otherwise as a result of a termination
pursuant to this Section 10.1 except as provided in Section 10.2 hereof.

     10.2     Liabilities Upon Termination.

     (a)     Concurrent with the execution hereof, Buyer is delivering Sixty
Million Dollars ($60,000,000) (the "Down Payment") to Seller by wire transfer of
immediately available funds which will be held and disbursed pursuant to the
terms hereof.  At Closing, the Cash Purchase Price shall be reduced by the Down
Payment. To the extent the Down Payment is applied to the Cash Purchase Price or
is paid to Buyer pursuant to Section 10.2(c), the Down Payment shall be deemed
to include the "Down Payment Interest", which means interest on the Down Payment
calculated at a rate of four percent (4%) per annum on the basis of a 365-day
year based on the actual number of days the Down Payment was held by Seller.

     (b)     The full amount of the Down Payment shall be retained by Seller if
the Agreement is terminated by Seller pursuant to Section 10.1(a), except if
termination is due to a failure of Section 7.4 to be satisfied and Buyer is not
in default of its obligations under this Agreement, then, and in such event, the
Down Payment shall be payable by Seller to Buyer, together with the Down Payment
Interest.

     (c)     The full amount of the Down Payment shall be payable to Buyer by
Seller if the Agreement is terminated by Buyer pursuant to Section 10.1(b), and
the full amount of any additional Cash Purchase Price payments previously made
by Buyer in connection with any Extended Periods pursuant to Section 2.1 hereof
shall be payable to Buyer by Seller only if the Agreement is terminated by Buyer
pursuant to Section 10.1(b)(ii) as a result of the Seller's grossly negligent or
willful and wrongful breach of its obligations under this Agreement.

     (d)     The full amount of the Down Payment shall be payable pursuant to
the joint agreement of Buyer and Seller in the event that this Agreement is
terminated by Buyer and Seller pursuant to Section 10.1(c)(i).

     (e)     In the event of termination, as provided in Section 10.1, the
provisions of Section 3.14, 4.4, 5.6, 6.1, this 10.2, 10.7-10.15, 10.17-10.19
and 10.22 shall survive.  The sole and exclusive remedy of Seller in connection
with its termination of this Agreement or a failure of performance or compliance
by Buyer with any covenant or agreement contained in this Agreement prior to the
Closing shall be the right of Seller to retain the Down Payment as provided in
this Section 10.2 and any additional Cash Purchase Price payments previously
made by Buyer hereunder.  The sole and exclusive remedies of Buyer in connection
with Buyer's termination of this Agreement for any failure of performance or
compliance by Seller with any covenant or agreement contained in this Agreement
prior to the Closing shall be limited to (i) their right to a return of the Down
Payment, and under certain circumstances, additional Cash Purchase Price
payments made by Buyer hereunder, each as expressly provided in this Section
10.2, (ii) their right to seek specific enforcement of this Agreement against
Seller; provided, that Buyer shall not be entitled to specific performance
unless it shall have complied with and shall not be in breach of the material
terms and conditions of this Agreement, and (iii) the right to bring claim(s)
for actual but not consequential or incidental damages; provided, however, that
notwithstanding anything to the contrary in the foregoing, to the extent that
Seller breaches its obligation to close hereunder after all conditions provided
in Article 7 have been met by Buyer or waived by Seller and Buyer stands ready,
willing and able to close hereunder, (x) Buyer shall have the right to bring an
action for specific performance and to the extent Buyer is not granted specific
performance or elects not to bring an action for specific performance, Seller
shall pay to Buyer Sixty Million Dollars ($60,000,000) but Buyer shall have no
other rights or remedies hereunder and (y) if Seller then enters into a binding
agreement within one year from the date of this Agreement to sell substantially
all of the assets of Seller or substantially all of the partnership interests in
Seller for an amount in excess of the value of the Purchase Price, Seller shall
pay to Buyer (1) the difference between the value of the Purchase Price and the
value of the total purchase price received by Seller in connection therewith
minus (2) $60,000,000.  Buyer's remedies are cumulative and not intended to be
limited by the doctrine of election of remedies.  Without limiting the
generality of the foregoing, neither Buyer nor Seller may rely on the failure of
any condition precedent set forth in Articles 7 and 8, as applicable, to be
satisfied if such failure was caused by such other party's (or parties') failure
to act in good faith, or a breach of or failure to perform its representations,
warranties, covenants or other obligations in accordance with the terms of this
Agreement.

     (f)     Anything in this Agreement or any applicable law to the contrary
notwithstanding, neither Seller (except to the extent expressly provided for in
Section 10.1(e)) nor any partner, director, officer, employee, agent or
Affiliate of Seller (including any shareholder, director, officer, employee
agent or Affiliate of the general partner of the Seller) shall have any personal
liability to Buyer as a result of the breach of any representation, warranty,
covenant or agreement of Seller contained herein or otherwise and shall have no
personal obligation to Buyer for any of Buyer's remedies hereunder.

     10.3     Employee Matters.  The following provisions shall act exclusively
for the benefit of the parties to this Agreement and not for the benefit of any
other person or entity:

     (a)     Effective as of the Closing Date, Buyer shall offer employment to
each employee of Seller who is employed at any Station, any JSA Station or the
Columbus Station immediately prior to the Closing Date (collectively, the
"Assumed Employees"), other than those employees designated by Seller that are
to be retained by Seller under the TBA.  Except as otherwise provided in this
Section 10.3 or as any employment agreement between Buyer and any Assumed
Employee may otherwise require, the Buyer shall offer employment to the Assumed
Employees on terms and conditions that are substantially similar in the
aggregate to the terms and conditions of employment of Buyer's employees as of
the Closing Date, including the provision of retirement and health care
benefits.  Buyer shall assume all contracts of employment of the Assumed
Employees and notwithstanding anything in the foregoing to the contrary, to the
extent such employment contract or collective bargaining agreement assumed
hereunder provides for terms and conditions in addition to those referenced in
the preceding sentence, Buyer shall assume the terms thereof.  Each Assumed
Employee shall receive credit for past service with Seller for all purposes
under Buyer's benefits plans.  With respect to the employees of the Columbus
Station, from and after the date hereof through and including the Columbus
Option Closing Date (as defined in the Option Agreement) or, if applicable, 60
days after the termination of the Option with respect to Columbus under the
Option Agreement, Buyer agrees that it will not, nor will it permit any
Affiliate of Buyer to, enter into an agreement that would restrict or prohibit
any such employee from being employed by Seller in the future.

     (b)     Buyer shall assume full responsibility and liability for offering
and providing "Continuation Coverage" to any "Qualified Beneficiary" who is
covered by a "Group Health Plan" sponsored or contributed to by Seller or any
entity required to be combined with Seller (within the meaning of Sections
414(b), (c), (m) or (o) of the Code) and who has experienced a "Qualifying
Event" or is receiving "Continuation Coverage" on or prior to the Closing Date.
Schedule 10.3 identifies all Qualified Beneficiaries entitled to Continuation
Coverage under any Seller Group Health Plan on the date of this Agreement, and
Seller shall deliver on the Closing Date a list of Qualified Beneficiaries
entitled to Continuation Coverage as of such date.  "Continuation Coverage,"
"Qualified Beneficiary," "Qualifying Event" and "Group Health Plan" all shall
have the meanings given such terms under Section 4980B of the Code and Section
601 et seq. of ERISA.

     (c)     Buyer shall offer health plan coverage to all Assumed Employees
under the terms and conditions generally applicable to Buyer's employees as of
the Closing Date.  For purposes of providing such coverage, Buyer shall waive
all preexisting condition limitations for all Assumed Employees covered by
Seller's group health plan as of the Closing Date and shall provide such health
care coverage effective as of the Closing Date without the application of any
eligibility period for coverage.  In addition, Buyer shall credit all employee
payments toward deductible and co-payment obligations limits under Seller's
health care plans for the plan year which includes the Closing Date as if such
payments had been made for similar purposes under Buyer's health care plans
during the plan year which includes the Closing Date, with respect to the
Assumed Employees.

     (d)     Buyer shall grant Assumed Employees credit for and shall assume and
be responsible for any liabilities with respect to sick leave and personal days
accrued but unused by any Assumed Employees as of the Closing Date, and, subject
to the proration provided for in Section 2.2(a)(i), Buyer shall grant Assumed
Employees credit for and shall assume and be responsible for any liabilities
with respect to any accrued but unused vacation for such employees as of the
Closing Date.

     (e)     Seller currently maintains the WLOS TV, Inc. Retirement Plan (the
"WLOS Plan"), a defined benefit pension plan for the benefit of certain
employees.  The WLOS Plan has been frozen and all future benefit accruals
ceased, effective as of January 10, 1994.  Buyer agrees, effective as of the
Closing Date to fully assume sponsorship of such plan including all obligations
of the sponsor to contribute to and administer the plan.  Buyer and Seller agree
to perform all acts necessary or proper to consummate the assumption of the WLOS
Plan, including, but not limited to, the making of all proper filings with the
Internal Revenue Service and the Department of Labor and the receipt of all
necessary notices or approvals from governmental agencies.

     (f)     Within a reasonable period of time after the Closing Date, Seller
shall transfer from the River City Investment and Retirement Plan (the "Seller
401(k) Plan") to the Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. 401(k) Profit Sharing Plan
and Trust ("Buyer's 401(k) Plan") an amount, in cash, equal to the aggregate
account balances held in the Seller 401(k) Plan as of the date of transfer with
respect to all Assumed Employees.  Prior to the date of such transfer, and as
preconditions thereto: (i) Buyer shall use commercially reasonable efforts to
deliver to Seller a copy of the most recently issued Internal Revenue Service
("IRS") determination letter (or other proof satisfactory to counsel for Seller)
that Buyer's 401(k) Plan is qualified under the Code, and (ii) Seller shall use
commercially reasonable efforts to deliver to Buyer a copy of the most recently
issued IRS determination letter (or other proof satisfactory to counsel for the
Buyer) that the Seller 401(k) Plan is qualified under the Code (including, to
the extent relevant, a determination letter issued to a prototype plan adopted
by Seller).  Subsequent to the transfer of assets to Buyer's 401(k) Plan,
neither Seller nor the Seller 401(k) Plan shall retain any liability with
respect to such Assumed Employees to provide them with benefits in accordance
with the terms of the Seller 401(k) Plan.  On or prior to the Closing Date,
Seller shall deliver to Buyer a list of all Assumed Employees, indicating
thereon the total amount deferred in pre-tax dollars to the Seller 401(k) Plan
by each Assumed Employee under the terms of Section 402(g) of the Code with
respect to the plan year of the Seller 401(k) Plan in which Closing occurs.
Seller and Buyer agree to cooperate with respect to any government filing,
including, but not limited to, the filing of IRS Forms 5310-A, if necessary, to
effect the transfer of assets contemplated by this Section 10.3.

     (g)     Buyer agrees that Seller may inform its employees that Buyer has
agreed that the employees will be offered employment as provided in this Section
10.3; provided, however, that Buyer shall have the right to approve any written
statement to be made by Seller in connection therewith.

     (h)     Seller currently maintains retiree medical coverage for certain
employees and former employees listed on Schedule 10.3 (the "Retirees") and
Buyer hereby agrees to continue such retiree medical coverage for the Retirees.
Retiree coverage offered by Buyer under this Section 10.3(h) will be under the
same terms and conditions generally applicable to Buyer's current employees,
subject to offsets, at the option of Buyer, for any health care benefits,
whether from a governmental source or from other employers, payable to the
affected former employees of Seller.

     10.4     Proxy Statement; Special Stockholders Meeting to Approve Amended
Charter.  Buyer agrees that, as soon as practicable after the Closing Date but
in no event more than sixty (60) days after the Closing Date, it shall cause to
be filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") proxy statement
materials for the purpose of soliciting proxies from the holders of Buyer Common
Stock in order to approve, at the next regularly scheduled or special meeting of
Buyer's stockholders (which meeting, in any event shall be scheduled to occur
not more than 90 days after the Closing Date), (i) the adoption of an amendment
and restatement of Buyer's charter in the form of the Amended Charter, which is
necessary in order to effect the issuance of the Convertible Preferred Stock as
contemplated under Section 2.1 hereof, and (ii) to approve the Consulting
Agreement, Employment Agreement, the ISO Amendment and the LTIP and the issuance
of all of the stock options described in the Baker Stock Option Agreement, the
Corporate Employee Stock Option Agreement, the Station Employee Stock Option
Agreement and to the extent approval is necessary, the Employee Letter
Agreement.  Buyer shall use its commercially reasonable efforts to obtain such
clearance by the SEC of such proxy statement materials as promptly as possible,
and as soon as is permissible under the rules and regulations of the SEC, Buyer
shall cause definitive copies of such proxy materials to be distributed to
Buyer's stockholders.  Buyer thereafter shall use its commercially reasonable
efforts to obtain the approval of its stockholders to the adoption of Amended
Charter and the approval of the other matters described in this Section 10.4.
Buyer shall cause the Amended Charter to be filed with the Maryland Department
of Assessments and Taxation as soon as practicable after the adoption thereof by
its stockholders.  Prior to such filing of the Amended Charter, Buyer will not,
without the prior written consent of Seller (to the extent the following
restrictions are permitted by the FCC and all applicable Law):

     (a)     amend its articles of incorporation or by-laws, as applicable,
except for the filing of the Articles Supplementary; or

     (b)     effect any stock split or otherwise change its capitalization as it
exists on the date hereof except as set forth in the Articles Supplementary and
as set forth on Schedule 6.6 hereto.

Buyer shall issue the Convertible Preferred Stock to Seller in exchange for the
Exchangeable Preferred Stock immediately after the filing by Buyer with the
Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation of the Amended Charter.
Thereafter, Seller shall be permitted to distribute such shares of Convertible
Preferred Stock to its partners and warrant holders and to the stockholders of
Seller's corporate general partner, and such transferees also shall become
parties to the Registration Rights Agreement with respect to the shares of Buyer
Common Stock underlying such Convertible Preferred Stock; provided that if
Seller has not received the Convertible Preferred Stock within twelve (12)
months after the Closing Date, it shall be permitted to distribute the
Exchangeable Preferred Stock to the same parties to whom the Convertible
Preferred Stock may be transferred.  Buyer shall cooperate with Seller in all
respects in connection with such distribution of shares of Exchangeable
Preferred Stock (to the extent applicable) and Convertible Preferred Stock
(including, without limitation, in connection with the issuance to such
transferees of Seller of new share certificates for such Convertible Preferred
Stock in such share denominations (not to exceed in the aggregate the number of
shares issuable to Seller in exchange for the Exchangeable Preferred Stock) as
shall be designated by Seller to Buyer in writing); provided, however, that
prior to such distribution to such transferees, Seller shall have caused such
persons or entities to whom such shares are to be transferred to deliver to
Buyer such representation letters and stockholder questionnaires as Buyer may
reasonably request in order for Buyer to comply with the applicable requirements
of federal and state securities laws relevant to such distribution.

     10.5     Registration Statement; Nasdaq Listing.  Buyer agrees that, in no
event more than sixty (60) days after the date as of which it has filed the
Amended Charter with the Maryland Department of Assessments and Taxation, it
shall file with the SEC, in accordance with the Registration Rights Agreement,
substantially in the form of Exhibit 10.5 hereto (the "Registration Rights
Agreement"), and the applicable provisions of the Securities Act of 1933, as
amended, a registration statement on Form S-3 (or such other form as may be
appropriate) with respect to the resale by Seller or such partners of Seller or
stockholders of the corporate general partner of Seller (as shall be designated
in writing by Seller to Buyer) of the shares of Buyer Common Stock underlying
the Convertible Preferred Stock which is to be issued as contemplated under
Section 2.1 hereof, which registration statement shall be kept effective in
accordance with the Registration Rights Agreement (such registration statement
is hereinafter referred to as the "Registration Statement").  Buyer shall
otherwise comply with the applicable provisions of the Registration Rights
Agreement in seeking to obtain the effectiveness thereof as soon after the
filing thereof as is reasonably practicable.  In connection with any such
Registration Statement, Seller shall furnish (and shall cause such partners of
Seller or stockholders of the corporate general partner of Seller as have been
designated by Seller to receive shares of Convertible Preferred Stock, as
contemplated above, to furnish) all information (financial and other) that is
requested by the Staff of the SEC or is reasonably required under the applicable
SEC rules and forms on a timely basis to enable Buyer to comply with its
obligations under this Section 10.5 and the Registration Rights Agreement.
Buyer also shall apply, prior to or concurrently with the filing of the
Registration Statement, to the Nasdaq National Market System for the listing of
the Buyer Common Stock underlying the Convertible Preferred Stock and shall use
commercially reasonably efforts to obtain approval for the listing of such
stock.

     10.6     Expenses.  Subject to the provisions of Sections 5.9, 3.14 and
4.4, each party hereto shall bear all of its expenses incurred in connection
with the transactions contemplated by this Agreement, including, without
limitation, accounting and legal fees incurred in connection herewith; provided,
however, that Seller on the one hand, and Buyer on the other hand, shall each
pay one-half of any sales or transfer taxes (including any real property
transfer taxes) arising from transfer of the Station Assets.

     10.7     Assignments.  This Agreement shall not be assigned by any party
hereto without the prior written consent of the other parties except that Buyer
may assign its rights and interests hereunder (in whole or in part as to any
Station or JSA Station) to a direct or indirect wholly-owned subsidiary of Buyer
or of Buyer in which event such assignee shall be responsible for all
representations, covenants and agreements of Buyer hereunder as if such assignee
was a party hereto provided that Buyer gives Seller written notice thereof and
that any such assignment above shall not relieve Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc.
or any permitted assignee of any of its obligations or liabilities hereunder
(including, without limitation, the obligations of Buyer hereunder to issue
shares of its capital stock pursuant to Section 2.1 and the obligations
specified in Sections 10.4 and 10.5 hereof).  To the extent of any such
assignment by Buyer in accordance with the terms of Section 10.5 hereof, Seller
shall deliver any such documents contemplated under Section 2.4(a) to such
assignee provided that once such delivery shall have been made to such assignee,
Seller's obligations hereunder with respect to such delivery shall be deemed to
have been discharged.  It is understood and agreed that Seller may assign its
rights to receive hereunder, or otherwise distribute, the Stock Purchase Price
to the partners of Seller.  It is understood and agreed that nothing herein
shall be deemed to prohibit a transfer of control of Seller or Licensee or the
assignment of any FCC Authorizations of the other License Assets by Seller or
Licensee.  Any attempt to assign this Agreement without any required consent
shall be void.  It is understood and agreed that nothing herein shall be deemed
to expand the rights granted hereunder to any permitted assignee, which rights
shall be in combination with, and not in addition to, the rights of Buyer.  This
Agreement shall be binding upon and inure to the benefit of the parties hereto
and their respective successors and permitted assigns.

     10.8     Further Assurances.  Subject to the terms and conditions of this
Agreement, from time to time prior to, at and after the Closing Date, each party
hereto will use commercially reasonable efforts to take, or cause to be taken,
all such actions and to do or cause to be done, all things, necessary, proper or
advisable under applicable laws and regulations to consummate and make effective
the sale contemplated by this Agreement and the consummation of the other
transactions contemplated hereby, including executing and delivering such
documents as the other party being advised by counsel shall reasonably request
in connection with the consummation of this Agreement and the consummation of
the other transactions contemplated hereby, including, without limitation, the
execution and delivery of any and all confirmatory and other instruments, in
addition to those to be delivered on the Closing Date.

Agreement are solely for the purpose of reference, are not part of the agreement
of the parties and shall not in any way affect the meaning or interpretation of
this Agreement.

     10.19     Severability.  If any provision of this Agreement or the
application thereof to any person or circumstance shall be invalid or
unenforceable to any extent, the remainder of this Agreement and the application
of such provision to other persons or circumstances shall not be affected
thereby and shall be enforced to the greatest extent permitted by law so long as
the economic or legal substance of the transactions contemplated hereby is not
affected in any manner materially adverse to any party.  Upon such determination
that any term or other provision is invalid or unenforceable, the parties hereto
shall negotiate in good faith to modify this Agreement so as to effect the
original intent of the parties as closely as possible in an acceptable manner to
the end that the transactions contemplated hereby are fulfilled to the greatest
extent possible.

     10.20     Receivables.  (a) For the Collection Period (as defined below),
Buyer, as agent for Seller, shall collect on behalf of Seller all Receivables
with the same care and diligence as Buyer uses with respect to its own accounts
receivable, except that Buyer shall not be obligated to use any extraordinary
efforts for collection, including without limitation, institution of litigation,
and shall not refer any of the Receivables to a collection agency or to an
attorney for collection, or compromise, settle or adjust the amount of any
Receivable, except with the prior written approval of Seller.

     (b)     To the extent that (i) Twenty Million Dollars ($20,000,000) or more
in receivables from account debtors of Seller is outstanding on the Closing
Date, the Initial $20,000,000 Receivables Amount shall be divided equally
between Buyer and Seller and during the Collection Period, Buyer shall remit to
Seller one-half of all payments received by Buyer from account debtors of Seller
up to the Initial $20,000,000 Receivables Amount and all payments in excess of
the Initial $20,000,000 Receivables Amount; and (ii) less than Twenty Million
Dollars ($20,000,000) in receivables from account debtors of Seller is
outstanding on the Closing Date, the amount in excess of Ten Million Dollars
($10,000,000) (the "Initial Excess Amount") shall be divided equally between
Buyer and Seller, and during the Collection Period, Buyer shall remit to Seller
one half of all payments received by Buyer from account debtors of Seller up to
the Initial Excess Amount and thereafter Buyer shall retain the difference
between one half of the Initial Excess Amount and Ten Million Dollars
($10,000,000). 
     (c)     To the extent the Collection Period has not yet ended because one
hundred twenty (120) days have not yet passed since the Closing Date thereafter,
all payments received from account debtors shall first be applied in reduction
of the oldest outstanding balance due from such account debtor, except to the
extent:  (a) any account debtor specifically identifies the invoice being paid,
in which case, the account debtor's instructions shall govern; or (b) an account
is disputed by the account debtor as properly due, and the account debtor has so
notified Buyer in writing, in which case, all payments received shall be applied
as provided in (a) above, except to the extent of such dispute.  Buyer will
promptly give Seller written notice of any such dispute with respect to which
Buyer has received notice from the account debtor. 

     (d)     Buyer shall remit all payments owed to Seller (as set forth in this
Section 10.20) on the fifteenth day and the last day of each month. 

     (e)     So long as Buyer is in compliance with this Section 10.20, during
the Collection Period none of Seller or any of its representatives or agents,
shall make any direct solicitation of the account debtors for collection
purposes or other direct attempts to collect from account debtors during such
Collection Period except as may be agreed to by Buyer, except with respect to
those accounts which may be or become more than ninety (90) days past due, and
except those accounts from which Buyer has received written notice of a dispute
from the account debtor.

     (f)    "Collection Period" means the period from the Closing Date through
the later of (i) one hundred twenty (120) days after the Closing Date, and (ii)
the date on which the Buyer shall have collected (a) the first Twenty Million
Dollars ($20,000,000) in payments from account debtors of Seller (the "Initial
$20,000,000 Receivables Amount") or (b) to the extent that less than Twenty
Million Dollars (20,000,000) in receivables from account debtors of Seller is
outstanding on the Closing Date, the Initial Receivables Amount plus the
difference between one-half of the Initial Receivables Amount and Ten Million
Dollars ($10,000,000).

     (g)     Upon the conclusion of the Collection Period, Buyer shall remit to
Seller all amounts collected by Buyer from account debtors not previously
remitted to Seller that are in excess of the $10,000,000 to be retained by Buyer
hereunder, shall assign to Seller all uncollected Receivables and shall furnish
Seller with a list of the amounts collected during such period and all files
concerning any uncollected Receivables, and Buyer shall have no further
responsibilities hereunder except to remit promptly to Seller any amounts
subsequently received by it on account of the Receivables.

     10.21     Board of Directors and Committees.  From and after the Closing
Date, Buyer shall cause (i) each of (1) Baker and (2) Roy F. Coppedge (or such
other individual as may be designated by Boston Ventures Limited Partnership IV
and Boston Ventures Limited Partnership IVA (collectively, "Boston Ventures"))
(the "BV Designee") to receive notice of all meetings of the Board of Directors
of Buyer and to be permitted to attend such meetings, (ii) Baker to receive
notice of all meetings of any executive and finance committees and to be
permitted to attend such meetings, and (iii) the BV Designee to receive notice
of all meetings of any compensation and finance committees and to be permitted
to attend such meetings.  In addition, if the Board of Directors or any
executive, finance or compensation committee of Buyer plans to take actions by
written consent in lieu of a meeting, then Buyer shall cause Baker (in the case
of the Board of Directors and any executive and finance committees) and the BV
Designee (in the case of the Board of Directors and any finance and compensation
committees) to receive a copy of the form of consent documents relating to such
actions at the same time that such documents are circulated or distributed to
the members of the Board of Directors, executive, finance or compensation
committees, as applicable.  In addition, as soon as permissible under the rules
of the FCC and applicable laws, Buyer shall cause (i) each of Baker and the BV
Designee to be appointed as members of the Board of Directors of Buyer, (ii)
Baker to be appointed as a member of any executive committee and, to the extent
established, the finance committee and (iii) the BV Designee to be appointed as
a member of any finance committee, to the extent established, and the
compensation committee.  Buyer's Board of Directors (which presently consists of
seven (7) directors) has duly adopted resolutions which have fixed the number of
members of (x) directors of Buyer at nine (9) directors, (y) the executive
committee at six (6) members, and (z) the compensation committee at six (6)
members and such resolutions also have designated Baker and the BV Designee, as
applicable, to fill the directorships on the Buyer's Board of Directors and
memberships on such committees pursuant to the terms of this Agreement.  To the
extent that the Buyer or the Board of Directors establishes a finance committee,
it shall designate each of Baker and the BV Designee as members of the finance
committee.  Baker shall be entitled to be a director of Buyer and a member of
the executive committee and, to the extent established, the finance committee
for so long as he remains an employee of Buyer, and BV shall be entitled to have
the BV Designee be a director of Buyer and a member of the compensation
committee and, to the extent established, the finance committee until the first
to occur of (i) the later of (a) the fifth anniversary of the Closing Date and
(b) the expiration of the initial five-year term of Barry Baker's Employment
Agreement with Buyer and (ii) such time, after Buyer has issued the Convertible
Preferred Stock to Seller or to its partners, as Boston Ventures no longer owns,
of record or beneficially to the extent of its interest as a limited partner of
Seller, at least 721,115 shares of Buyer Common Stock, on an "as converted"
basis, as such number may be adjusted pursuant to stock splits, stock
combinations, reclassifications or recapitalizations of Buyer occurring after
the date hereof.
