Conservative Pundit Armstrong Williams To Buy TV Stations

Called "one of the most recognized conservative voices in America" conservative pundit, columnist and Fox News favorite Armstrong Williams has announced that his company Howard Stirk Holdings will be buying WMMP-TV in Charleston, S.C. from the Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc.

Furthermore, Sinclair also previously announced they would be selling two other TV stations it currently owns to Williams’ company, including WHP-TV in Harrisburg, Pa  and that those deals are currently “making their way through the government approval process."

The sales would make Williams one of the very  few African American TV station owners in the country, where station ownership “dropped from 12 stations in 2009 down to 10 in 2011."

That makes it  less than 1% percent of total of TV stations in the U.S. owned by African-Americans.

It’s not known exactly what type of programming Williams has in mind once he takes ownership of the stations, but since the Sinclair Company has a reputation of strong “conservative leanings” there’s no reason why, once Williams takes over, there would be any change.

And just for the record, in case you haven’t heard (and because I’m a jerk) Williams, who is 54 years old, is well known for his attacks about the lack of morality in modern culture, his rants against homosexuality and claims to be a life long celibate. (O.K. if he says so)

Though, back in the late 90’s, Williams was sued “for sexual harassment by Stephen Gregory, a former YMCA personal trainer whom Williams repeatedly promoted, eventually to executive producer of his former TV show The Right Side.

The case was later settled out of court for an officially undisclosed amount in the six figures.

Just keep that in mind next time he goes off about gay people or immorality in today’s culture.
