PORTLAND, Maine (AP) _ Guy Gannett Communications is selling its seven television stations to Sinclair Broadcast Group Inc. for $310 million, completing the family-owned media company's plan to sell off its assets.

The deal, announced today, comes after Guy Gannett announced last week it will sell its newspapers and other non-broadcast properties to The Seattle Times Co. for an undisclosed amount.

Guy Gannett was put up for sale earlier this year after the generation in line to take over the company made it known that it did not intend to keep it. Family trustees said they decided to sell the company now rather than subject it to an uncertain future.

The network-affiliated TV stations being sold to Sinclair are WGME-TV, Portland; WGGB-TV, Springfield, Mass.; KGAN-TV, Cedar Rapids, Iowa; WICS-TV, Springfield, Ill; WCID-TV, Champaign, Ill; WTWC-TV, Tallahassee, Fla., and WOKR-TV, Rochester, N.Y.

Sinclair, which already owns WUHF-TV in the Rochester market, plans to sell WOKR-TV to The Ackerley Group Inc.

Sinclair, which now owns or programs 56 TV stations and 54 radio stations, said it will reach 24.4 percent of the nation's television households after the deal is completed next year.

Guy Gannett is not related to Gannett Co., the nation's largest newspaper publisher.
