A new survey shows which station is the "most trusted" in the Tampa market.
Brand News did the survey and found that local cable news station Bay NEWS 9 is the “Most Trusted” station in the market for local news according to the survey.
Rankings are based on viewers identifying the specific stations they trust for local news, sports, weather forecasts and traffic updates.
Bay NEWS 9 has the highest composition of viewers citing the station as “most trusted” versus other measured stations, which included network affiliates WFTS (ABC), WTSP (CBS), WTVT (FOX) and WFLA (NBC).
Bay NEWS 9 also receives the highest ranking for having “the most accurate local weather forecasts”.
FOX affiliate WTVT has the highest composition of its local news viewers agreeing that “the station usually reports breaking news before other television stations”.
Tegna owned WTSP was picked as the station where you will likely see the talent laying on the floor while giving you the news.
OK....maybe that was not part of the survey....
