2010 video shared on social media not an endorsement of Sheriff Byrd’s campaign

MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – On Friday, Darlington County Sheriff Wayne Byrd shared on social media a link to a video from 2010 in which Ted Fortenberry, a former general manager of WMBF News, highlighted in an editorial an initiative by the Darlington County Sheriff's Office.

The video is not an endorsement of Sheriff Wayne Byrd's campaign for re-election, and WMBF News does not endorse local or national candidates for any political office, said current WMBF News General Manager Sarah Miles.

Sheriff Byrd shared the video on social media on Friday, June 10, 2016, over six years after it originally aired, without the station's knowledge or consent, and it is not a political endorsement by WMBF News or any WMBF News employee, past or present.
