WJLA Moves Wheel, Jeopardy for Ferguson Town Hall

To Feature Michael Brown's Attorney, Others Exploring Race Relations

Sinclair's WJLA-TV Washington is preempting popular syndicated shows Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy Wednesday night, at least on the mother ship, to air an hour-long town hall meeting on Ferguson that will include Michael Brown attorney Benjamin Crump, among others, talking about race relations as it relates to the aftermath of the shooting of Brown by a Ferguson, Mo., policeman.

"Your Voice, Your future: Ferguson-America Reacts" is the fifth in an ongoing series of periodic town hall meetings. The others have aired on co-owned NewsChannel 8, but using station talent and streaming on the station's website.

This time around the 7-8 p.m. show will air on WJLA as well as streamed on the website and those of Sinclair's 78 other TV stations, as was the case with the previous town halls.
