Sinclair Named TVN's Station Group Of Year
TVNewsCheck today named the Sinclair Broadcast Group the recipient of its inaugural Station Group of the Year Award for 2014.
To be presented early next year, the honor recognizes Sinclair’s commitment to and outstanding leadership of the industry.
"Over the past year, no group has had a greater impact on the business than Sinclair," said TVNewsCheck Editor Harry A. Jessell.
"Its unprecedented roll-up of TV stations demonstrates a deep faith in broadcasting, and it has become a technology leader by championing a new broadcast standard and new uses for TV spectrum. It has also proposed creating a national cable news network by aggregating the local news resources of TV stations," Jessell added.
Sinclair CEO David Smith is "one of the industry’s true entrepreneurs," Jessell said. "His long-term vision is evident in every move that Sinclair makes."
As part of its tribute to Sinclair, TVNewsCheck will publish an in-depth profile of the company and its expanding influence in U.S. broadcasting in the January issue of its Executive Outlook magazine, to be published in January.
