In Philadelphia, KYW radio has cut ties with KYW-TV.
The CBS station will no longer produce weather hits and news updates for the radio station that was once also owned by CBS. Now owned by Entracom, KYW radio listeners will get weather, news and breaking news updates from NBC 10 and Telemundo 62.
“NBC10 and Telemundo62 are excited to partner with Entercom to provide our audience with the most comprehensive news, weather and sports coverage across the Greater Philadelphia region,” said Ric Harris, president and general manager of NBC10 and Telemundo62. “This powerful, new alliance guarantees the largest number of reporters, photographers, and news gathering technology covering more local news than any other broadcast organization in our area.”
“We’re thrilled that the region’s most experienced and innovative radio team is joining forces with the most forward-thinking team in local television,” said David Yadgaroff, senior vice president and market manager, Entercom Philadelphia. “This strategic partnership will provide the Philadelphia area with the most immediate, accurate, and compelling news, weather, traffic, and entertainment reports.”
