STIRR Adding Locally Produced Content To Its STIRR City Channels
The effort has started with a documentary and town hall produced by Sinclair’s Baltimore station, WBFF, to stream on the Baltimore Stirr City channel on July 8.
The Baltimore-produced news specials, Baltimore Is Dying, and Your Voice, Your Future Town Hall: City in Crisis, were produced by the WBFF news team, and first streamed on July 1 and will be streamed once again on July 8, following the regular stream of the 6 pm news:
- 6 pm ET - Fox45 News at 6pm
- 6:30 pm ET - Baltimore is Dying (30 minute documentary)
- 7 pm ET - Your Voice, Your Future Town Hall: City in Crisis (60-minute town hall)
The documentary special examines Baltimore’s violent crime crisis, while the town hall provides a forum for residents of Baltimore’s Fells Point neighborhood to discuss the safety of the community and discuss potential solutions to the problems there.
