STEVENSON, Md., April 16, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The securities litigation law firm of Brower Piven, A Professional Corporation, announces that a class action lawsuit has been commenced in the Delaware Court of Chancery on behalf of all common stockholders of LIN Media LLC ("LIN" or the "Company") (NYSE:LIN) asserting claims that the members of the Company's board of directors have breached fiduciary duties they owe to LIN shareholders.

LIN recently announced that it has entered into a definitive merger agreement to be acquired by Media General, Inc. ("Media General"). According to the complaint, under the terms of the proposed transaction, LIN shareholders can elect to receive $27.82 in cash or 1.5762 shares of the new holding company for each share of LIN they own.
