“You’ve been the trusted newsman there in Syracuse for decades now and I can’t think of a better team than you and Carrie [Lazarus]. I’m so glad that everyone at channel 9 isn’t letting the day go by without letting you know that you’ve been there for 50 years,” Muir said. “…Here’s to another 50.”

In the release, KTVU noted they were first on the air and first with a reporter from the scene. The station also noted that KTVU’s aerial coverage was used by ABC News in its national report, since KGO’s chopper was not yet in the air by the time David Muir‘s special report began:
KTVU’s coverage was even picked up by the ABC National News – instead of their own affiliate (KGO). The ABC National News repeatedly used aerial footage from KTVU NewsChopper 2 during their 30 minute Special Report. KGO didn’t hit the air with local coverage until 1:11pm – 58 minutes later than KTVU.
ABC News, CBS News and Fox are members of Network News Service, a partnership that allows all three networks to pool coverage from their local affiliates. KTVU’s live pictures were fed to ABC News through NNS.

KGO news director Tracey Watkowski did not immediately respond to TVSpy’s request for comment.
