Sinclair’s Grinch Stole Christmas

KOMO news employees, are unlikely to get that bonus because of forthcoming union negotiations. (Union-busting?) CROSSCUT…Gary Nolan, formerly PD at WARM 106.9 moves from most recent position Greenville, NC to Q97 Shreveport…Cliff Winston, with KYAC Seattle long ago, has passed away. He most recently spent 20 years on-air at KJLH Los Angeles…..Former KOMO TV morning anchor, Peggy Bunker (2013) was recently fired by a station known as NBC Bay Area (San Jose-San Francisco) because she only wanted to work weekends – as an anchor. Apparently, the station chose to can her instead.

Given the past record of Sinclair (see clips below), the threat of consolidation of the two stations into a single operation is real. Did Sinclair buy KOMO to shut it down?
