Is Content Sharing Good or Bad for Local Stations?

The New York Times’ Brian Stelter examines content sharing as a “survival strategy” for local stations, noting the increase of shared-services agreements “resembles the retrenchment of the American newspaper industry, but it has been far less publicized.”

A Houston native, Sanders began his broadcasting career at KSAN in San Angelo, TX.
