It could be satellite delays, or processing delays in creating digital signals. Broadcast time tones are totally unreliable now. My favorite example is WBZ when you hear two top-of-the-hour tones about 10 seconds apart, and I doubt that either of them are on time when you actually hear them. If you're listening to digital or satellite radio there's a 7-10 second delay for processing, and that's not counting any delay for bleeping content on talk shows. There's a similar delay for cable TV, more so for satellite TV. Counting down on New Year's Eve, I was flipping between stations on my digital cable TV and there were huge discrepancies.
