TV Researcher Says Statement Read By Sinclair Broadcasting Anchors Unusual

Sinclair Broadcasting owns the largest network of local television news stations in the country. Plans are currently underway for them to increase their reach through the purchase of stations currently owned by Tribune Media.

The Maryland-based company has drawn criticism for requiring news anchors at their stations to do a segment on “the troubling trend of irresponsible one-sided news stories plaguing the country.”

 To learn more about what this could mean, The Show was joined by Christopher Ali. He is an assistant professor in media studies at the University of Virginia.

Steve Goldstein was a host at KJZZ from 1997 to 2022.
