List of Publicly Traded TV Broadcasting Companies Listed on Major U.S. Exchanges

The companies on this list are television broadcasting companies that own and operate television stations. These companies can also provide programming and services to television stations that they do not directly own or operate. The amount of stations that they own, or provide these services to, can vary from company to company with some companies involved with as few as 10 stations and others involved in over 150.

Because of the number of stations that each company owns, many of these companies’ affiliates represent all of the major networks (ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC) along with many secondary networks. The reach of many of these companies is deep, with most of the companies reaching a notable percentage of all U.S. television households.
