FTVLive told you last month that Kai Jackson was leaving WJZ in Baltimore and now we can tell you where he's headed.
After more than 20 years, Jackson signed off from and is joining Sinclair Broadcasting as its national correspondent based in Washington, D.C.
"Yes, I'm going to Sinclair," Jackson said in a telephone interview with the Baltimore Sun. "I'm really excited. It's a company at the forefront of the industry, and I appreciate that they think I have something to offer."
Jackson said he will start his new job with the Hunt-Valley-based broadcaster Jan. 2.
"Kai will be a special correspondent covering stories in the nation’s capitol for all of the Sinclair news operations," Scott Livingston, VP for news at Sinclair, said in an email response to The Sun."He will develop stories that focus on our commitment to advocacy journalism. Our goal is to produce stories that give context to the hot button issues in Washington."
