Louisville’s WHAS and WAVE Start Chopper Partnership

In an arrangement that is becoming more prevalent across the country, Louisville’s WHAS and WAVE are set to begin sharing a news helicopter this week.

Starting Friday, WHAS, a Belo-owned ABC-affiliate and WAVE, a Raycom Media-owned NBC-affiliate, will begin sharing a news helicopter from Helicopters Inc., based in St. Louis.

According to LouisvilleKY.com, the two stations will share air time and video feeds, especially in the event of breaking news, while also partitioning time for individual use of the chopper.

Earlier this month in Miami, NBC O&O WTVJ joined with WFOR and WPLG in sharing a helicopter.

“It’s becoming really common all across the country,” WHAS news director Mark Neerman said.
