KTTV, KCBS to Share Chopper in Los Angeles

Fox-owned KTTV is entering into a helicopter sharing agreement in Los Angeles with CBS-owned KCBS-KCAL.

The partnership, which officially begins Monday afternoon, is a pooling agreement on a non-exclusive basis. Until last year, KTTV shared a helicopter with NBC-owned KNBC; KCBS-KCAL has been operating their own helicopter.

A Fox spokesperson said no staff reductions are expected at KTTV as a result of the agreement. The station says the partnership will lead to more content and a more efficient use of resources. The Fox Television Stations Group has helicopter sharing agreements in 13 markets.
