KYW-AM is the news and information leader here in Philly. Alligning the TV station with KYW-AM just makes so much sense.

I see now that I made a mistake with my first comment. KYW-AM has cut ties with the CBS TV station in Philly and partnered with WCAU, the NBC station in Philly. Huge loss for KYW-TV and great gain for WCAU.
