De-localizing Local News

I’ve just seen a glimpse of television conglomerate Sinclair Broadcasting’s plans to centralize and de-localize local news at its stations. Sinclair owns and operates 63 stations across the country reaching 25% of the national broadcast audience.

Your local news may soon come from Maryland.
