In San Francisco, KCBS used to be up in one of the Embarcadero towers.

They moved it in with KPIX on Battery, and you are 100%
correct...there is NO physical connection between the KCBS and KPIX
facilities.  Each has separate news and operations areas, and there
MAY be a way to get between them in the halls by going past the front

But you could spend the day on Battery visiting KCBS, like I did some
time ago, and not even REALIZE that a TV station is in the building.

Oddly enough, there is some collaboration on-air between the two,
mostly feature stuff, at least one reporter who works on both sides,
and KPIX does off-hours weather for KCBS, but NO physical connection
other than the walls they share.
