Even with millions of sources for news, Americans turn to local TV and radio stations first.

Local Journalists

At a time when misinformation and disinformation run rampant online, broadcast journalists are more important than ever in delivering the news, information and facts that Americans need to know.

Local broadcast stations and their TV and radio journalists take freedom of speech seriously and are using the power of media and technology to provide listeners and viewers with immediate access to the events that impact our communities and the world. Even with millions of sources for information, Americans turn to local radio and television stations first – it is the most trusted source of information.

Local journalists are committed to bringing you the facts – uncovering the stories breaking in your community and across the globe.

From the inspirational first Moon landing to the tragedy of 9-11, Americans turn to local TV and radio stations to follow inspiring events and mourn together when our friends and neighbors are hurting. It’s no wonder that we trust those in our own community to bring us the critical news and information we need most.
