CPP: WLOS gets $3 million windfall from political ads


Jon Elliston, the investigations editor at Carolina Public Press, reports that WLOS is raking in political ad cash. From his story:

A Carolina Public Press analysis of the station’s filings for ad space purchased thus far, for hundreds of 30-second spots running between Aug. 2 and the Nov. 6 election, shows more than $3 million in revenues for WLOS. …

The spending on WLOS skews to the right, with ads supporting Republican candidates funded at twice the level of ads supporting Democrats.
