It was Christmas in July again for Sinclair Broadcast Group’s ABC affiliate KATV-TV, Channel 7, as the station swept Nielsen household ratings in all but one broadcast for the third consecutive July ratings period.
Year over year, KATV showed gains in nearly all of its Monday through Friday news programs, and remained ahead of other stations in each slot where it had competition. Its highest-rated slot was its “News at 6” show, with a 15.6 rating and a 29.4 percent share of viewership.
