After Using Drone Footage in Story, New York FOX Station Asks if It’s Legal

In its 10:00 p.m. news last night, New York’s WNYW used drone footage as part of a story about a small plane crash on Long Island. Then the FOX owned station looked into the legality of using unmanned aerial vehicles to cover the news.

“When I heard that the police helicopters and news choppers couldn’t get video footage of what was going on because of the cloud cover that was today,” Nick Borella, the guy who used his drone to shoot the plane crash, told WNYW’s Stacey Delikat. “I thought that I would get over and have a chance to help them out any way that I could because I could fly in that.”

WNYW’s admission it didn’t pay for the footage did two things, it furthered the conversation about drone usage and according to Brendan Schulman, an attorney who runs the unmanned aircraft system group for law firm Kramer Levin, cleared them of any wrongdoing since the FAA only frowns on commercial use.

The question raised? Does this change anything for drone operators looking to get paid for their work?

hurricane sandyWith the one-year anniversary of Hurricane Sandy around the corner, local stations in New York are producing special coverage looking back at the storm and its aftermath.

NY1 has been covering the upcoming anniversary throughout the week with a series of special reports. The channel will air hourlong specials on both Saturday and Sunday at 8pmET. “One on One with Budd Mishkin” will also focus on the storm and its aftermath on Monday.

CW affiliate WPIX has slated three specials on Hurricane Sandy. “The First 36 Hours,” a behind-the-scenes look at a WPIX news crew trapped in rising floodwaters in Queens, airs Friday at 10:30 p.m. On Sunday, WPIX will air “Hell and High Water: One Year Later,” a 30 minute special hosted by Scott Stanford and Tamsen Fadal. And on Tuesday, the storm’s anniversary, WPIX’s morning newscast will air “Still Standing: After Sandy,” with the entire morning newscast on location from the storm’s worst affected areas.

NBC owned WNBC launched a series of reports on the storm that have aired throughout the week on the 5 p.m. newscast. Michael Gargiulo, whose parents own a home in the hard-hit Breezy Point, Queens, will anchor a half-hour special at 7pmET on Saturday.

ABC owned WABC will produce an hourlong special at 4pmET on Tuesday, October 29. The program will look at what work has been completed and what is still ahead in the recovery process.

Fox owned WNYW will have special reports from throughout the region on Tuesday: Robert Moses from Seaside, N.J., Joel Waldman from Long Beach, Long Island, Stacey Delikat from Breezy Point and Kerry Drew from Staten Island.

WCBS has been airing a series of vignettes on the storm featuring the memories and reflections of its anchors and reporters throughout the week. The CBS O&O has extensive coverage planned from locations around the region Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday of next week.

VIDEO: Covering Murder of Elderly Woman, KTVK Reporter Interviews Man Later Arrested for the Crime

While interviewing neighbors of a murdered elderly woman, KTVK reporter Stacey Delikat spoke with a man now suspected of committing the crime (video above).

Police arrested Michael Franklin Jr. last Thursday, believing that he stabbed the woman in an attempted robbery. Saying that he was surprised by the murder, Franklin told Delikat a week before his arrest that he used to do yard work for the woman and described her as “sweet.”

Remarkably, a similar situation happened last month when a man spoke with a KTUL news crew about a double homicide that he is now suspected of committing.
