The station my husband works for is a Sinclair Media station. Yesterday they had some issues getting on air, etc because of a ransomware attack. (This is effecting many stations owned by Sinclair across the US.) Some stations are having their weather people do weather on a white board. At one point, I believe they said that the hackers possible could control what goes on air. A bit scary to think about.

Yeah... the only thing scarier is if Sinclair controlled it.
