Peoria (August 23, 2012) —Today, members of the SAG-AFTRA Peoria Local ratified a new contract with Granite Broadcasting, operators WEEK TV and WHOI TV. The contract is the result of a difficult negotiation process that has lasted for almost two years.
"On behalf of the Local SAG-AFTRA Membership, we want to thank the community for all of their support during our campaign to save local news. Without your support, we are confident we would not have reached a deal," said Local President Garry Moore.
