What Are Local Stations Covering?

You may have noticed this infographic comparing what stories stations affiliated with the big four networks are doing in the first five minutes of their 6:00 p.m. newscasts. As a disclaimer, some stations don’t have 6:00 p.m. news so we go with whichever comes closest.

We plan on posting this every Tuesday to show what’s happening on the Monday night show, eventually hitting every market in the US.

TVSpy would love to write up your market. If you want to be included sooner rather than later, let us know.

Also, we’d appreciate any inside info on markets you pitch us. For example, we noticed while three of the Palm Springs stations are owned by the same company the only redundancy between them were some of the anchors and the pacing. We didn’t expect that and we’d love to know why.
