Sinclair Broadcasting Forming PAC

sinclair_304Sinclair Broadcasting is forming a PAC.

According to The Hill, Rebecca Hanson, Sinclair SVP of policy and strategy said the station group will use the political action committee “as it works out issues in front of Congress and the FCC.”

“There are a lot of challenges facing our industry,” said Hanson. “And we believe that engaging in the process through the PAC is one of a variety of ways to further our goals.”

Before being hired by Sinclair in November, Hanson worked as a senior adviser in the FCC’s media bureau.

Hanson told The Hill the foray into politics is in the early stages. “We’re still in the process of forming it internally,” said Hanson.
