Allbritton Hands Control of TBD.com to WJLA

Allbritton Communications is handing control of local news site TBD.com to ABC-affiliate WJLA.

TBD.com was launched last August as part of Allbritton’s strategy to cohere its D.C. news outlets. WJLA has been a content partner of TBD.com along with its sister station TBD TV, the cable news channel formerly known as News Channel 8.

According to the Washington Post, which first reported the change, WJLA’s news director and general manager Bill Lord will now oversee TBD.

There has been conflict atop TBD nearly since its launch.  Just three months after TBD.com went live, Jim Brady, who oversaw the site’s creation, left because he differed with Albritton executives “over broader strategy.”
