In 1999, Sinclair`s use of local marketing agreements would pose legal problems when Glencairn, Ltd. (since its restructuring as Cunningham Broadcasting) announced that it would acquire KOKH-TV, a subsidiary of Fox, in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, from Sullivan Broadcasting; Glencairn then announced its intention to sell five of its 11 existing stations operated by Sinclair directly to the company under LMAs. Given that the family of Sinclair Broadcast Group founder Julian Smith controlled 97% of Glencairn`s assets (which remains the case under Cunningham`s structure) and that the company in turn had to be paid for purchases of Sinclair shares, KOKH and Sinclair WB KOCB`s subsidiary (now a subsidiary of CW) would be a duopoly contrary to FCC rules. The Rainbow/PUSH coalition (led by Jesse Jackson) applauded the sale to the FCC, saying it was a relapse: That only one company had two broadcasting licences in a single market, arguing that Glencairn disguised itself as a separate minority company (Edwards, who was the president of Glencairn, African-American), when it was really an arm of Sinclair, which the company was using to take control of the stations.   After the FCC updated its media ownership rules in August 1999 to allow a single company to hold two television channels in the same market, Sinclair restructured the agreement to acquire KOKH directly. In 2001, the FCC fined Sinclair $40,000 for illegally controlling Glencairn.  Partner channels under a sharing agreement can also consolidate their programming activities: local news on the LMA`s junior partner, if they have operated their own information service prior to the creation of the AML, they may be reprogrammed or reduced to avoid direct competition with the channel`s news programming, which acts as a primary partner (the latter is less common among LMAs, which operate only channels with one of the three largest television channels).
Channels can collect messages Resources can be shared, but have separate news programs that are distinguished by their online presentation, anchoring and overall format, with varying degrees of autonomy;  In these cases, a newscast apparently separated on the broadcast channel in the duopoly may ultimately consist of repackaged news content from the other channel.  Channels can also consolidate their news programming under a single common brand.   In February 2001, Citicasters, a subsidiary of Clear Channel Communications, was fined $25,000 for using time-mediation contracts and disputes for unlawful control of radio station WBTJ (101.9 FM, now WYLR). The company had also been the target of complaints about the use of KFJO (FM) for the broadcast of KSJO after selling KFJO in nominal terms in minority stakes.     MMAs may also allow companies to control foreign stations outside their respective countries; Canadian media company Rogers Media is using a joint sales contract to operate Cape Vincent, the New York radio station WLYK, as a station that targets the canadian market adjacent to Kingston, Ontario, where it owns CKXC-FM and CIKR-FM. Rogers owns 47% of WLYK`s licensee, Border International Broadcasting.   The customer pays the fees for the services in accordance with the payment terms specified in the order document.
