College Scandal Includes Former Broadcaster

Elisabeth Kimmel, who sold KFMB San Diego to Tegna in February 2018, was among those swept up in the college admissions scandal that broke on Tuesday. She is accused of mail fraud in connection with bribery schemes aimed at getting her daughter and son into elite colleges. Correction: An earlier version of this story said that Kimmel had pleaded guilty to the charges. That is incorrect. It was William Rick Singer, the mastermind of the admissions conspiracies, who pleaded guilty.
