No Longer TBD, WJLA Launches New Website

By Andrew Gauthier 

WJLA‘s stint with TBD.com is now but a distant memory, or at least just a small link at the top of the ABC-affiliate’s new website.

Launching a brand-new website this week, WJLA has asserted its independence from TBD.com, the local news site that Allbritton launched in August to house its D.C area media outlets.

“We’re delighted to have you back,” reads a post on the new WJLA.com, announcing the relaunched website and alluding to the apparent erosion of WJLA’s online audience during its time under TBD’s roof. The post goes on to say…

In case you missed the headlines, wjla.com was lying low for nine months or so. In August of last year, this site became a subsection of local news portal TBD.com. As time went on, though, we determined that ABC7’s TV audience and newshounds across the Washington region needed a discrete, free-standing wjla.com.

So here we are.
