    Sinclair purchase of WJW Fox 8 triggers concerns about local news content

  • Share
  • No television station in the Cleveland market has been bought and sold more than WJW Channel 8. There have been eight different owners since 1985.

    Despite that volatility at the ownership level, the station’s executives always have enjoyed a great degree of autonomy and ratings success when it comes to local news content. The daunting question hanging over Cleveland’s Fox affiliate is whether all that will change when WJW gets yet another new owner, the Sinclair Broadcast Group.
