The Allbritton Communications Company is an owner of television stations and other media, based in Arlington, Virginia. All of its stations are affiliated with ABC after signing an affiliation agreement in 1997.
In October, 2009, Allbritton announced that it planned to launch an online-only news site for the Washington, D.C., area in spring, 2010. The site "will build on a merger of the Web pages now fielded by the company's television stations, WJLA-TV (Channel 7) and its cable sibling, NewsChannel 8," according to the Washington Post. Jim Brady, a former Post editor, will run the site, which will be known as TBD.
