"Sinclair's three-year renewal, along with Hearst's support for the last 10, reaffirms TV is still all about quality news programming," said Primo.
Sinclair owns or provides services to 87 television stations in 47 markets. Sinclair programming VP William Butler confirmed the three-year renewal.
Besides Sinclair, the 200 affiliate partners airing Teen Kids News include the Fox group and 28 Hearst TV stations. It also airs overseas on the American Forces Network.
"The station support gives us the incentive to let the audience hear exactly what is important to the next generation," added Primo, who created the "Eyewitness News" concept while he was at KYW Philadelphia.
