Something to watch out for...

This week NBC and FOX have decided to set up a news bureau in
Philadelphia to cut costs on local news.

The local FOX and NBC will pool raw footage of news stories and then
edit it the way they want. NBC and FOX plan to do the same in Chicago
and then in all markets where they both own stations.

This may include Boston as the Miami Herald is hinting Sunbeam is
ready to cash out by selling WSVN to FOX and possibly WHDH to NBC.

NBC has sold stations in smaller markets to concentrate on larger
markets and owing in Boston would make sense. Boston is one of he
largest markets where they don't own (may well be the largest)
