WNYW, WCBS to Share Helicopter in New York City

The CBS and Fox stations in New York City are teaming up to share aerial coverage. Effective today, WCBS and WNYW have entered into an agreement to share a helicopter in the nation’s top DMA, TVSpy has confirmed.

WNYW was previously part of a helicopter sharing agreement with WNBC, the NBC O&O. Fox and NBC ended their New York agreement, and a similar one with their respective stations in Los Angeles, earlier this year. WNBC and KNBC now have their own choppers.

WCBS ended a helicopter-sharing agreement with WPIX, the CW affiliate, earlier this year. Costs associated with news choppers run a station approximately $1 million per year.
